Gabrielle Guðbjörg Waterman

After 18 months of of research and sketching Gabrielle Guðbjörg Waterman ’12, writes, “I have finally put a close on one of my biggest projects., [the athletic logo for Kingswood Oxford in West Hartford]. I feel lucky to have been a designer behind an athletic mascot. I can't wait to see the new logo, the wyvern on athletic uniforms. This photo is a building which hung banners to announce their new branding.

Ival Stratford Kovner

Horse Drawn featuring Ival Stratfor Kovner
Reception 8/22/16 4-6 PM

Ival adds, "One large oil portrait has been added featuring a huge cavalry styled hat - since Danbury is "hat city".  The hat is nearly four feet wide!"

The drawings are figurative expressionist style.  Ival seeks to capture the moment in time distilling the essence of both horse and rider in her drawings.

Alain Picard

Alain writes, "I just returned from a refreshing and inspiring family vacation to Europe. We visited family in Germany, and managed to make lasting memories there as well as in Holland, Belgium, and France. I also hosted my first European art workshop in Duesseldorf, Germany. This is the city where my wife was born, attended University and my father-in-law worked his entire professional life. It was a very meaningful experience for us!"
