PINXT! - Opening Saturday 4/14

Paris in Plantsville Gallery and Studio is pleased to announce the opening of 
Pinxit: New Works by 
Sean Michanczyk & Eric Stegmaier
On view from April 14 to May 1, 2012.

Pinxit presents some 20 traditional and trompe l’oeil works completed by the award-winning artists over the past two years.
Michanczyk’s trompe l’oeils, with their rich palettes and traditional themes, successfully blend a Baroque style with modern materials and subjects.
Stegmaier’s work explores a vast range of natural, historical, and literary subjects in both charcoal and oils. His style, self-described as being “loosely tight”, reflects compositional complexity and attention to detail.

About the Artists:

Sean Michanczyk is a 2008 graduate of the Hartford Art School ( BFA illustration ). His work pays homage to old masters while keeping a contemporary trompe l’oeil edge. His tightly rendered paintings and keen sense of balance create harmonious story telling through symbolism. “ What it is, isn’t always what it is”.

Sean is the owner and founder of Paris In Plantsville Gallery & Studio. He and his Great Dane aptly named Paris reside in Southington, CT

Eric Stegmaier is a 2002 graduate of the Hartford Art School (BFA illustration) and a 2007 graduate of Sacred Heart University (MA religious studies). His work harmonizes tightly rendered and loosely gestural strokes, allowing him to direct the viewer’s eye not only through compositional placement, but also by selective detail.

Eric is an artist in residence at Paris in Plantsville and is the Senior Conservation Assistant in the Paintings Department at the Yale Center for British Art. He and his wife Heather currently reside in Southington, CT.
