Press release

Gallery 305K, Norwalk 2.0 and TR SONO Partners are proud to present Eye Candy. Inspired by the candy store that once occupied the space that will be hosting the show on 136 Washington Street in Norwalk, the show will feature work that seems to view life through a child’s eye. Without naivete, but with an eye to the visually bold, magical, and simply fun.

The art explores the power of competing and vying color. It includes visual elements that speak to magical and improbable themes as well as the deliciously enticing. Artists reach the viewer on all sensory levels and we are tempted to consume the work on many levels.

Artists include Mark DeRosa, Liz Squillace, Frank Foster Post, Emily Habansky, Andrew Perkowski, Darrin Green, Jason Streater and E.S. Barraza. Eileen Walsh of Gallery 305K curated the show. The artists are all a large part of the creative bloom that is happening in Bridgeport. We are all very happy to bring a taste of our culture to Norwalk, a city that serves as an inspiration and example of how The Arts can invigorate a city.

Tom Rich of TR SONO Partners has donated the space to support emerging artists and incubate local produced talent. A strong supporter of the arts in Fairfield County, TR SONO Partners has donated space and supported programs throughput the county.

The show will have an opening reception on Thurs. July 21, with artists at 6:30 pm. The Space called the mARTket (former Sweet Rexies) is at 136 East Washington Street in Norwalk’s SoNo area. During the show Gallery hours will be Saturdays from 12 noon until 5 p.m. The show will run through the end of July and selected pieces will also be on exhibit during the Sono Arts Celebration, a weekend festival that runs through August 6 and 7 2011.
