Press release

Paper New England presents MS Redux. MS Redux is a reunion of 27 artists who formerly showed at The MS Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Hartford, CT.

The MS Gallery exhibited contemporary art from 1982β€”1989. During those seven years, 80 shows were mounted of which 56 were solo shows. Most of the exhibited artists worked on paper, many were just out of art school or were just beginning to show their work, professionally.

Today, more than two decades later, these mature artists are coming from five New England states and New York to show us where their journey has taken them. Patrons and friends of The MS Gallery as well as the art appreciating public will know and recognize many of these names.

From Connecticut: Robert Dente, Janice LaMotta, Richard Harden, Jonathan Frechette, Ronald Sloan, Beth Williams, Elisa Tenenbaum, Terry Feder, Irene Reed, Chet Kempczynski, John Willis, Kitty Winslow, Jim Lee, Rachel Siporin, John Gintoff, Dan Rosenthal, Gigi Liverant, Cary Smith and Howard Rackliffe.

From Massachusetts: Mary Barringer, Christine Brenner and Christopher Castelli;

From Rhode Island: Stephen Fisher;

From Vermont: Robert Manning;

From Maine: Dennis Pinette and Cathy Melio;

From New York: Diane Brawarsky.

MS Redux will be on view from Feb. 27β€”Mar. 26, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Mar. 5, 2011 from 6β€”9 p.m.
