They all use to hang decorously on the walls of the Branchville SoHo Gallery of Contemporary Art and now they have one more chance to be seen together before they move on to be cherished and loved in people’s homes. Paula Reens, who passed away last month, and her husband Lou Reens, Wilton residents for the past 49 years, made a decision to have the remaining paintings from their contemporary gallery they owned in Ridgefield, CT placed on display at Wilton Library and have the library be the beneficiary of one hundred percent of the proceeds. The public will be able to see fifty paintings of some of America’s well-regarded contemporary artists at the opening reception of “The Branchville SoHo Gallery Estate Art Exhibition” on Friday, June 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the library. Artists such as Ben Benn (1884-1983), Jack Youngerman (b. 1926), Marvin Hayes (b. 1939; lived in Wilton 1965 - 1991) and Robert Heindel (1938 – 2005), among others will be featured.
