River Road Gallery's new show, "Close to the Heart," features the paintings of Anda Styler, who will show work created from her travels throughout Connecticut. The show opens with a reception on Saturday, Dec. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m.
Ms. Styler orchestrates strong contrasts of light and color together with notes of brightness. Her eye is attracted by post and beam, clapboard and shingle, and so her landscapes highlight Connecticut homes, barns and gardens. She has traveled from Wilton to Guilford, from Weir Farm National Historic Site to Westport, from farmlands to the seashore.
