Our next competition of the season is this Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

The assigned subject for November is Monochrome in Color.

Print submissions are accepted until 7:15 pm the evening of the competition. The meeting will begin promptly at 7:30pm.

Our judges for this competition are:


Dick, a resident of Norwalk, completed his 45-year career as a Scenic Artist in 2012.  He was a Master Scenic Artist on more than 50 movies including the Emmy Award winning Death of a Salesman, and the Academy Award winning Sleepy Hollow.  He completed that career painting for the Metropolitan Opera.

His work in photography is in the medium of photomontage and exclusively in the school of dramatic narrative. By applying decades of theatrical experience, each image depicts the painted female nude set within a unique context. Each work is rendered from multiple images that are digitally woven together.

In 2016 the series IN THE MOMENT: AFTER THE PAINTED NUDES OF ANDERS ZORN had its first Solo Show at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Upstairs Gallery. In 2014 GODDESS OF THE HUNT: AFTER AUGUSTUS SAINT-GAUDENS’ DIANA was the Solo Show at the same gallery.

Having recently returned from Leipzig, Germany, the current series, BACH 333, is continuing with new perspectives and images. This current work is an interpretation of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, visualized in the style of Giambattista Tiepolo, an Italian contemporary of Bach whose frescoes and murals adorned countless palaces and churches during the Baroque era.

This series will be exhibited during 2018, the 333rd anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach in 1685.



Using unconventional hardware – a blow torch, iron and other heated tools – along with paper, encaustics, photography, resin and natural materials, my uncommon painting techniques give way to a vision that is intense, mysterious and ethereal.  Most of my inspiration comes from the natural world as I emulate each of my subject’s movement, drama and complexity.  I might glaze or layer wax over photographs, manipulate lenticular 3D images or render subjects lost within a waxy fog.

I use all mediums in what Van Gogh called a “language of nature,” particularly in my underwater, wild horses and aspens series.  My aim is to show curiosity, adventure and evolution translated within images that are compelling, multi-layered, challenging and seductive.

I work from studios in Connecticut and New Mexico.
