Linda Colletta Solo Art Show at Southport Galleries, Opens Feb. 13

Southport, Conn. -- ​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 w​ill begin with an​ ​opening reception on Thursday, February 13th from 6-9pm and will be on view until Thursday, April 2nd.
