Hi Ladies! Please join me & two of my ladies for an evening of Art & Cocktails. Here's a little bit about the artists, Nana Smith & Joyce Colburn...
What is art for Nana? How & when does she think art is created? "There is no must in art, because art is free." ~Wassily Kandinsky~ Nana believes that art cannot exist without emotion. She states that everything is unique, unusual; everything which awakens emotion in one, whether man made or by mother nature, is art. Nana Smith is a self taught photographer and a unique and unusual object designer. Her work is displayed at Stamford Hospital, Darien Imaging Center, and in art galleries throughout Connecticut and in private collections. Nana has a PhD. in physics and is currently working as an interior designer out of Stamford Connecticut .
Joyce's intent is to capture what is memorable about whatever subject she chooses. How a scene alters during the seasons as a result of changing colors has always been fascinating to her; the magnificent oranges, yellows and reds of autumn; the grays of winter; the blossoms of spring finally yielding to the bright greens and blues of summer. She composes her still-lives from objects she loves; food that she finds at the supermarket, flowers from her garden, jars, toys, and vases from the antique shop. Does an artist create beauty or recreate it? After more than 16 years of study, Joyce believes it is the latter. She has a master's degree from Columbia University and studied at the Art Students League and Grand Central Academy in New York City. Her paintings are in private collections in New York City and Florida, and her work has been shown at IBM corporate headquarters, Armonk, New York, and galleries throughout Connecticut.
