Richard Klein will be exhibiting at Project Room of the Washington Art Association, 4 Bryan Plaza, Washington Depot, CT from July 25 to August 23. Tony Carretta of Litchfield is also exhibiting. There will be an artists' reception this Saturday, July 25 from 6-8 pm.
Klein's sculptures incorporate eyeglass lenses and other glass and found objects; they shape surface, volume, light, and shadow. They're surprising and beautiful. Tony Caretta also uses glass in his antiquity-inspired, sculptural vessels.
Klein is Director of Exhibitions at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. Tony Caretta is gallery director at the New Arts Gallery in Litchfield, CT, where Nancy Lasar is exhibiting this month.
