Wilton Library’s June art exhibition features four friends with a passion for painting in Artists’ Choice 2016, opening Friday, June 3, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The artists are Mollie Keller (Trumbull), Toby Michaels (Westport), Diane Pollack (Fairfield), and Florence Zolan (Bridgeport). Their common ground is the Art/Place Gallery in Fairfield where they are all members, however their diversity in their works sets them apart.
Keller creates calligraphic riffs that are part of her ongoing attempt to describe three-dimensional gestures in two dimensions. She balances “a desire for order and detail with a passion for big messy splashes of delicious color and working on how to achieve both.” She says she has “been playing with calligraphy, exploding and rearranging words, investigating the essence of each stroke of a letter, and wondering about the possibilities of black and white.”
