Gloria Cachion Art Gallery

Current Exhibit

Faith Vicinanza July 2021 Exhibit

Friday, July 2 - Thursday, July 29

This month, the Gloria Cachion Art Gallery features Color Meditations, an exhibit of mandala paintings, photography, acrylic, and oil abstracts by Faith Vicinanza. In addition to her work as a visual artist, Ms. Vicinanza is a widely published poet, a recipient of the CT Commission on the Arts “Advocate for the Arts Award,” and a cybersecurity professional by day.

In recent years, she has focused her artistic efforts on a form called dot painting. The defining criterion for a dot painting is the technique itself: repeated imprints of a paint covered brush, dotting stick, or other implement onto the painting surface to create recognizable ‘dot’ marks. The process of dot painting is time intensive, meditative, and focused, requiring discipline and precision. In Ms. Vincinanza's often over-committed life, dot painting has become a way to stop, sit, and clear her mind. This meditative process of being present with the paint and patterns allows her pieces to emerge organically; rarely does she have a set idea of where a painting will go. This approach produces unique, one-of-a-kind works that are distinct and drenched in color.

Color immersion defines Ms. Vicinanza’s style in all respects and features prominently in the works selected for this exhibit. The exhibit will be open during regular library hours July 2 through July 29, 2021. Please visit our website to learn more.

The exhibit will be open during regular library hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9:30am to 6:30pm, and Saturdays 9:30am-4:00pm. The exhibit will also be online too as a virtual gallery.

Gloria Cachion Art Gallery and Ludorf Collection

The Gloria Cachion Art Gallery, adjacent to the lobby, is an open two-story area along with the Brown Conference Room that showcases in-house and online exhibitions. It is available principally for local artists on a monthly rotation to present their work.

The Gallery was dedicated in May 2011 featuring the "Uncle John" Ludorf Collection photographed by Georgia Sheron.  This collection donated by Connie and Jack Hume is on display throughout the library as part of its permanent collection.
