Description

Redefining Illustration A Group Show of Contemporary Illustration

 

A local group of young illustrators have banded together for an exhibition of modern illustration techniques. When many people hear the word “illustration”, they envision traditional methods like pencil drawings and watercolor. For this group of diverse artists, all mediums are fair game. This exhibition features a mix of techniques including digital art, 3-D sculptures, cut paper, collage, mixed media, as well as traditional watercolor, acrylic, and oil illustrations.

The show is free and runs from February 21- April 3, 2013 with an opening reception on Thursday, March 7th from 5-7pm at the Madison Arts Cinema, Madison, Connecticut.

Artists featured: Dan Cogan, Lauren Coulter, Kate Decusati, Alex DeFranzo, Kevin Klakouski, Dominique Monroe, Wendy Natter, Mildred Paulino and Emily Petrillo.
