Coastal Expressions by Joyce Grasso

Coastal Expressions features the abstract seascapes of Joyce Grasso, the Best in Show winner of Pequot Library’s 2018 Art Show Wet Paint: Art Fresh from the Studio. Grasso describes her acrylic on canvas paintings as creating a “feeling of place” with “bold colors, multiple laters and varied textures.” This exhibition also highlights Grasso’s mixed media collages with hand-painted acrylic papers on cradleboard.

Enjoy a gallery talk led by Grasso during the opening reception on September 5, along with light hors d’oeuvres and wine.
