    The Print Show at Heather Gaudio Fine Art

    Heather Gaudio Fine Art, a contemporary art gallery in New Canaan, Connecticut, announces the current exhibition, The Print Show. Through March 30, the show features select works by five artists including Sarah Amos, Helen Frankenthaler, Bryan Nash Gill, Charlie Hewitt, and Donald Sultan.

    Heather Gaudio invites the community to the opening reception to be held from 5pm to 7pm on Friday, March 1. 'We are pleased to present such an impressive collection of talent represented by these five artists,” states Gaudio. “Exhibition highlights include four new pieces in Donald Sultan’s Lantern Flowers series; five new works by Sarah Amos; the final prints from Charlie Hewitt’s Acadian Spring edition and Bryan Nash Gill’s Red Ash edition and a Helen Frankenthaler print sourced from a private collection,” she continued.

    Featured Artists


    Sarah Amos is constantly lured by the rhythmic patterns and repetitive mark making often found in sculptures, religious relics, artifacts, textiles and organic architecture from Africa to Japan. Amos’ work is represented in corporate, public and private collections nationally and internationally including the Time Warner Collection, New York; The De Cordova Museum and Sculpture Park, Lincoln, Massachusetts; Prudential Insurance, Boston, Massachusetts and Art Bank, Australia.

    Helen Frankenthaler (1928 – 2011) is best-known for creating Color Field – a method of painting achieved by pouring pigment directly on canvas positioned on the floor. Through this contribution, the abstract expressionist is credited with shaping an influential art movement. Her work achieved widespread public recognition with the Whitney Museum of American Art’s retrospective in 1969. Frankenthaler received the National Medal of Arts in 2001 and critic Barbara Rose described her gift as “the freedom, spontaneity, openness and complexity of an image, not exclusively of the studio or the mind, but explicitly and intimately tied to nature and human emotions.”

    Bryan Nash Gill was born and raised in the same rural, north-western corner of Connecticut where he works as an artist today and his sculptures and drawings are heavily influenced by the New England countryside. Gill currently works out of his own studio in New Hartford, Connecticut, mainly with bronze, wood and hundreds of found objects for use in abstract sculpture. The lifelong fine artist and craftsman published “Woodcut” (Princeton Architectural Press) a book containing his relief prints of tree-trunk cross-sections which was selected as one of the “Best Books of 2012” by the New York Times T Magazine . “Gill’s art – his ability to capture the individuality of these trees – is a reminder that there is something generic or Platonic in the mere working out of the life force in each organism. What separates each organism and gives it its distinctive, living shape is experience,” (Verlyn Klinkenborg). His work is in many private and public collections including IBM Corporation in New York, Kaiser Permanente Medical Facility in Fairfield, California and the Boston Public Library.

    Charlie Hewitt grew up surrounded by the mill working communities and the experiences of his youth shape the symbols and imagery prevalent in his work including his latest sculpture, “Urban Rattle,” installed at Ten23 next to New York’s High Line. “Hewitt is an extremely talented, energetic and physical printmaker. He cannot sit still and is compelled to work, to draw and carve. For Hewitt, the process of beginning and developing an image and the collaborative nature of printmaking, are what make the medium so appealing,” (The Graphic Work of Charlie Hewitt, Mark H. Bessire). His work has been acquired for collections in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum, New York Public Library and the Library of Congress.

    Donald Sultan merges the contemporary and the classic in his work and is renowned for his large-format still life paintings. The artist utilizes industrial materials to depict natural elements such as flowers and fruit. This juxtaposition represents a reoccurring theme throughout Sultan’s work – the industrialization of the natural world. “The odd mixture of crudeness and refinement in Donald Sultan’s painting sets it against the grain of much recent art. Out of industrial materials such as vinyl tile, butyl rubber, and spackling plaster Sultan builds pictures that release pleasing vibrations in the mind and the eye…” (The New Yorker, 1999). Sultan’s work is featured in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

    Heather Gaudio Fine Art specializes in both emerging and established artists, offering works on paper, photography, painting and sculpture. The gallery offers a full range of art advisory services, from forming and maintaining a collection to framing and installation. The focus is on each individual client, selecting art that best serves his or her vision, space, and resources. Offering five shows per year, the exhibitions are designed to showcase important talent and provide artwork appealing to a broad range of interests. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday; 11am to 5pm; and by appointment.
