Press release from Seven Arts Gallery

Seven Arts Gallery, a fine art gallery, has its grand opening on Sat., Dec. 1. The gallery will open its doors at noon and a reception will be held at 6 p.m.

The Interpretations: Inaugural Invitational Exhibit will highlight works by Californian Jim Phillips, whose iconic designs have shaped surf, rock, and skateboard art; still life paintings by Silvermine Arts Center faculty member Justin Wiest; mixed-media works by internationally-exhibited artist Camille Eskell; paintings by Daniela Kinsbourne of Ridgefield; and drawings and paintings by gallery owner Paul Fernandez-Carol.

Camille Eskell: "Ezekiel Project: Aurora"
"I wanted to open the gallery because my friends who are area artists and I are always looking for new places to show our work and to see art that inspires us," said owner Paul Fernandez-Carol. The Norwalk resident, who has exhibited in Los Angeles and New York City as well as Connecticut, was excited to find the right space to house the gallery. "With the Aldrich downtown and Silvermine nearby, Ridgefield is the perfect home for a gallery with a modern sensibility."

Seven Arts Gallery is the newest addition to the Fairfield County fine arts scene. The intimate, minimalist gallery exhibits artists creating contemporary works on paper, paintings, photography, and works in other media. The gallery's mission is to provide opportunity for local and regional artists, as well as those from outside the area, to share their work with art enthusiasts and buyers in southwestern Connecticut.
