Press release

There will be a Saturday afternoon opening from 3—5 p.m. for shows by four artists in the Gallery at Hunt Hill Farm in New Milford.

Robert Alberetti • encaustic, collage, and oil painting

Imagination and emotion are the catalyst for Bob's paintings, collages, and mixed media works. This allows him to focus on the significant aspects of remembered scenes and experiences. He references on site, paintings, sketches, and photographs from his travels, which enables him to develop the formal attributes of his work. Alberetti's work, imbued with emotion, resonates with the viewer, which is a major factor in his working process.

Mourina Stott • oil on canvas - City Scapes

Mounira Gareeva was born on September 22, 1955, in Moscow, Russia. Her parents had recently migrated there from a village near the city of Ufa. She demonstrated an early aptitude for drawing and participated as an artist in school newspapers and similar activities. However, in that time and place it was not practical to pursue such a career. She received a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering from the Moscow Institute of Radio Engineering and Automation, and until 1992 worked as a research engineer. Following the collapse of the USSR, she returned to school as a student of art, and graduated from the Moscow College of Artistic Professions with high honors. For the next several years she worked as a private artist, selling her works (principally still life's in oil on canvas and other substrates) through galleries and brokers in Moscow, Russia. Many of her works from this period are now in private collections in Eastern and Western Europe. Her recent works reflect her romantic view of the city, particularly New York City.

Brian Walters • sculpture- Salvage Series

A visit to Storm King Sculpture Park inspired Brian to research the exhibiting artists and develop ideas for his own work beginning with drawings and studies for small-scale abstract sculptures. Creating sculpture has become a very rewarding part of Brian's life as he allows all aspects of what interests him to arouse and motivate his inventiveness. His work is untitled, which allows each viewer to explore the work without imposition and much, if not all the sculpture is constructed with reclaimed materials. Brian's work is currently included in The Sculpture Mile in Madison, CT, an outdoor sculpture exhibition, through next spring , as well as here in The Berry Garden, before the Twin Silos at The Henderson Cultural Center. Brian will also be a featured artist both within The Silo Gallery and on Hunt Hill Farm's grounds.

Tony Zatzick • watercolor landscapes

Originally from California, where he was born in 1967, Tony has lived, worked, and exhibited in both Europe and the Americas. His work has been selected for exhibition by many well-known artists and critics such as Irving Sandler, William Bailey, Graham Nickson, Charles Cajori, Barbara Grossman and Bernard Chaet. His work has also been included in exhibition alongside Philip Pearlstein, Janet Fish and Jamie Wyeth.
