DANBURY, Conn. – The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is opening its new gallery titled “Variations” with a public reception on 287 Main St. in Danbury on Friday, Jan. 30, from 5:30 to 8 p.m.

The exhibit, which will feature works by Robert L. Ferrucci and Anthony Masina, will run through April 10.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Mondays to Fridays or by appointment.

Ferrucci is known for his paintings and mixed media art featuring acrylic, oil pastel, tissue, and layers of tinting. The gallery will showcase his work spanning more than 55 years through the periods of American Folk Art style, Drip Art, and what he calls Atmospheric Landscapes. His new work is often described as Abstract Expressionism.

"I see it from a spiritual, personal growth perspective," he said.

His pieces will be complimented by Masina’s cast bronze animals.

"Animals are already perfectly designed,” Masina said. “My goal is not to improve upon those designs, but to use their basic form to create something familiar but different."

Masina studied at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where he earned a master’s degree in sculpture.

The exhibit was curated by Maureen and Bill McCann and installed by Visual Impact.

Learn more about Ferrucci at his website, and visit Masina's website for more information about the artist.

The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is dedicated to encouraging the public to immerse itself in its regional arts, culture and history through exhibitions, performances and more. To learn more about the organization, visit its website or call 203-798-0760.
