Ringing In a New Year!


Works from Arle-Sklar Weinstein's "Artist Portrait Project" are on display as part of the 25th anniversary celebration of Art/Place artists at Housatonic Museum in Bridgeport, CT. The Museum's press release states,"A highlight will be a wall with a grid of artist portraits created by member Arle Sklar-Weinstein."

The seeds of the project sprouted in 2007 when Arle was participating in an artist residency in Spain. This inspired her Artist Portrait Project, a series of photo montages of eight international artists and writers. Arle explains that her artist portraits are usually transferred to fabric and then stitched; the works in this current exhibit are 16" x 20" gallery wrapped canvas portraits.

Art Consultant and Reviewer Camilla Cook writes that Arle's work "captures the essence and soul of each artist and their work, but it is the selection of 'artifacts' and montage presentations that displays her astute eye."

Arle will be giving an artist talk and doing a book signing at the exhibition on January 8, 2009, 5:30-7:00 PM.
