Norwalk, CT - The Norwalk Parking Authority’s Art in Parking Places presents “Gusto,” a new art exhibit at the Maritime Garage Gallery. An opening reception will be held Tuesday October 1st from 5:00-7:00pm at the Gallery, 11 North Water Street. The event is free and open to the public. The show runs until January 10th.
The “Gusto” exhibit will focus on food in all its glory. Food plays a critical role in our life as we crave it, host events around it, conduct competitions in its honor, and work for it. The works will represent ways in which food inspires the artists. “Gusto” will feature the work of New York food artist Bill Wurtzel whose artistic food creations are spontaneous and witty. His book, “Funny Food: 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts” (Welcome Books, 2011), was chosen as Best Children’s Book of 2012 by the Bank Street College Book Committee. Other exhibiting artists demonstrate a diverse range of techniques and mediums. They include Amy Kaplan (Westport), Lynn Massey (Norwalk), Debra Schaffer (Ridgefield) and Ruth Kalla Ungerer (Ridgefield).
The Maritime Garage Gallery is part of the Parking Authority’s “Art in Parking Places” initiative, an effort to support art in public spaces. The gallery is free and open to the public from 9:00am -5:00pm Monday through Friday. For more information, for more information, visit www.norwalkpark.org or call 203- 831-9063.
