Eye Candy Opening Exhibit @ the mARTket
Gallery 305K , Norwalk 2.0 and TR SONO Partners are proud to present Eye Candy. Inspired by the candy store that once occupied the space that will be hosting the show on 136 Washington Street in Norwalk Connecticut, The show will feature work that seems to view life through a child’s eye. Without naivety but with an eye to the visually bold, magical, and simply fun.
The art explores the power of competing and vying color. It includes visual elements that speak to magical and improbable themes as well as the deliciously enticing. Artists reach the viewer on all sensory levels and we are tempted to consume the work on many levels.
Artists include Mark DeRosa, Liz Squillace, Frank Foster Post, Emily Habansky, Andrew Perkowski, Darrin Green, Jason Streater, and E.S. Barraza. The show is curated by Eileen Walsh, of Gallery 305K. The Artists are all a large part of the creative bloom that is happening in Bridgeport Connecticut. We are all very happy to bring a taste of our culture to Norwalk, a city that serves as an inspiration and example of how The Arts can invigorate a city.
