Spring News: Gwyneth Leech Solo Exhibition in Norwalk, CT

Gwyneth Leech Cup installation , ARTWorks Gallery on the Green, Norwalk, CT

After an epically long and snowy winter it is fantastic to finally see flowers blooming and trees budding all over New York City! And it has been a pleasure to be traveling up to Norwalk CT, where Spring is coming on apace, to prepare for my upcoming solo exhibition, Gwyneth Leech: Themes and Variations, at ARTWorks on the Green gallery. The gallery is located at 60 East Avenue in a handsome house adjacent to Saint Paul's on the Green church where, with its abundance of flowering lawns and trees, the grounds look particularly lovely at this time of year. 

The exhibition marks ten years since I completed a commission from Saint Paul's on the Green to paint the 14 stations of the cross. I am delighted to be showing paintings and works on paper representing several bodies of artwork from the intervening period, including an installation of cups hanging over four of the the floor-to-ceiling windows in the gallery.

The reception is next Tuesday, April 21st from 6:30-8:00PM. If you are in the neighborhood please join me, or tell any CT folk you know to come by!

In an unexpected development, rare prints by my grandfather, Michael J. Gallagher, a well-known WPA-era printmaker, are concurrently on view at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking also in Norwalk CT! The CCP is located at 229 West Avenue and the exhibition, WPA*JOBS, is open now through May 23rd.
