The Society of Creative Arts of Newtown (SCAN) will have Gigi Liverant painting a landscape in pastel on Wednesday, May 22, at 1:30. The demo will take place in the lower level of Newtown Meeting House, 31 Main Street (at the flagpole).
It is not necessary to be a member of SCAN to attend. Admission is free.
Gigi Horr Liverant’s work is experiential and inspired by the inconsequential moments and places in life. She juxtaposes rich color, encouraging the observer to experience an ordinary scene with a fresh vision and a prompt to reevaluate his or her own perception. Ms Liverant has worked with pastels and paint for over thirty years in an ongoing exploration of imagery.
She has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors including First Prize Connecticut Women Artists, Best in Show Connecticut Pastel Society, The Andrew Giffuni Memorial Award at the Pastel Society of America Annual Exhibition in 2009, and The Diane Bernhardt Gold Medal Award at the PSA Annual Exhibition in 2000.
She is a Pastel Society of America Master Pastelist and a Signature Member of the Connecticut Pastel Society. She has been featured in Pastel Journal magazine and is much sought after teacher and lecturer in the southeastern Connecticut area.
Ms Liverant’s paintings are included in a number of museum collections, and numerous private and corporate collections nationally. She exhibits her work at Cooley Gallery in Old Lyme and Granary Gallery on Martha’s Vineyard. She has been included in numerous juried group exhibitions throughout the region.
The artist is a graduate of Paier College of Art in New Haven. She lives and works in Colchester.
