Stamford, CT - Greenwich artist Paul Larson brings to the Loft Artists Gallery his latest collection of paintings entitled ‘ICONOGRAFIX’ a portrait exhibition of pop culture giants who have been of significant importance in our time. An artist’s reception is scheduled for Friday October 7th 2016 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Normal gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00 to 4:30 pm. The Loft Artists Gallery is located at 575 Pacific Street, Stamford CT. For directions and more information visit www.loftartists.com or call 203-247-2027.

In considering the theme of this exhibition, Larson says he found the need to define the term ‘hero’. He acknowledges a hero obviously as one whom despite great personal danger, risks his or her own safety to help another. “But I think there are other kinds of heroes. Those who through their creative accomplishments elevate and enrich us, stimulate our imaginations, heal our psychic wounds, nourish our connections with others, and thereby transform our own lives.”

“These larger than life portraits are of a chosen few creative cultural icons whom were of particular influence and inspiration in my life. They represent only a very small sampling among the many who have in one way or another influenced many of us in our dreams, our fantasies, and in our own creative interests. They are among the heroes who have inspired us to create in our own right.” More about the artist can be found at pglarson.com.

A simultaneous exhibition in the Loft Artists’ West Gallery will feature work of the current “Mix of Six,” member artists including Yuko Ike, Sholeh Janati, Paul Larson, Philippa Lodato-Suppa, Tom Lynch and Carolyn Lynghom.

Now in its 38th year, the Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and introducing the general public to artists and their work. Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year.
