The Sound of Color: Linda Colletta at Southport Galleries February 13th - April 2nd

The Sound of Color: Linda Colletta
A solo exhibition in collaboration with Southport Galleries
February 13 - April 2,​ ​2020

Southport Galleries is honored to present The Sound of Color, a solo exhibition featuring the latest body of work by abstract artist, Linda Colletta.

Presented in partnership with Sissy Biggers and Dr. Philip Eliasoph of Southport Galleries, The Sound of Color is curated by Danielle Ogden, Museum Specialist, Adult Learning at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT and Art History

Faculty at Fairfield University, and sponsored by TUSK Home + Design of Westport. The exhibit will showcase paintings and works on paper from Colletta’s dynamic breadth of practice. Drawing upon her fifteen-year background as a professional scenic artist in the music television industry​ in New York City, Linda is skilled in the craft of creating environments and cultivating an authentic experience for the viewer.

Colletta constructs a distinctive style of painting that emerges from a vocabulary of color. Her work calls upon an urban nostalgia, incorporating a cacophonous array of electric gestures, and a pop aesthetic. With no two works ever the same, her marks, layers, and compositions create a sense of controlled chaos that simultaneously captivates and unchains our attention.

The Sound of Color will begin with an​ ​opening reception on Thursday, February 13th from 6-9pm and will be on view until Thursday, April 2nd.
