The Gloria Cachion Gallery at the Southbury Public Library will showcase the art of Connecticut landscape Artist Jim Laurino from Wednesday, November 2, 2022 through Tuesday, November 29, 2022.
The exhibit will feature many architectural pieces, as well as more traditional landscapes, of varying sizes and seasonal motifs.
Jim began painting as a teenager and is largely self-taught. He completed course work in design and color theory at the University of Connecticut, and through additional workshops has cultivated a unique and recognizable painting style; well suited to portraying the classic landscapes he is noted for. His impressionist style paintings are in numerous private collections, and he exhibits in galleries throughout the Northeast.
Jim enjoys participating in competitive events, and recently received the Artist choice award, and 3rd place overall at the 2022 Adirondacks Plein-air festival. He was awarded 2nd place at the Lyme Art Associations Elected artists’ exhibit this year, and in 2021 received the top award at the Ogunquit, Maine Plein air competition.
Jim constructs frames for all of his paintings. The frames, which are made out of reclaimed wood material, fashion a rustic window into each piece, subtly complimenting his work. You can review more about Jim’s paintings and frames on his website: www.jimlaurino.com.
The exhibit will be open during regular library hours which are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:30am to 5:30pm, Tuesday and Thursday 9:30am to 9:00pm, Saturdays 9:30am to 4:00pm and Sundays 12:00pm to 5:00pm. The exhibit will also be online too as a virtual gallery.
