Remembered: Paintings by Justyna Dabrowski

November 16 - January 8 | Opening Reception: December 3

Inspired by her Polish heritage and family photo albums, artist Justyna Dabrowski paints an intimate, nostalgic image of what it means to grow up as a first-generation Polish-American in Connecticut. Using textiles, such as curtains and wall paper, Dabrowski constructs a tactile backdrop to the paintings, preserving memory and identity, and capturing lives lived and shared. Dabrowski's paintings allow the viewer to experience the passage of time, stepping into her shoes if only for a moment. This show is part of the Remembering & Repurposing exhibition series. 

Join us for the of the opening reception of Remembered on Thursday, December 3 from 5p.m. to 7p.m.where you can meet the artist, hear acoustic folk music, sip on wine and munch on light hors d’oeuvres. Bring your fondest memories as well to participate in our interactive piece.


Exhibition Series - Remembering & Repurposing

Through January 2017

Remembering & Repurposing explores the preservation and recreation of memories and discarded materials into works of art from oil paintings to mixed media. The exhibition series, which includes five shows from established and emerging artists based in Connecticut, invites viewers to ponder the multiple histories of people and objects as they transform through time and space.
