Westport's Newton Roux Gallery "Figures" Exhibit Closing Event on May 21

 “Figures” by Artist Allison Meyler Exhibit Closing Event at Newton Roux Gallery Friday, May 21

Newton Roux Gallery is a contemporary art space in Bedford Square in downtown Westport. Its current solo exhibition "Figures" featuring works by Ridgefield, CT-based artist Allison Meyler is closing on May 22nd and will be celebrated by a closing event.

Come and join us for a glass of fizz and your final chance to see the show on Friday, May 21st from 5pm - 630pm at the gallery and meet the artist.

“Figures” is a collection of work by Meyler, spanning 2018-2020. This body of work addresses the artist’s fascination with the multiple roles that women juggle in today’s society, as well as women’s notion of body image. Not always anatomically correct, her abstract treatment of the female figure is intended to be a balance between what is “pretty” and also what is true.

All pieces are for sale through the gallery which is open daily in Bedford Square in downtown Westport. They are also available to view online here

She studied Studio Art/Art History at Wellesley College, with a semester spent at the Tyler School of Art in Rome, Italy which remains one of her favorite cities to this day.

About the gallery

Newton Roux Gallery, at 14 Elm Street, occupies the 2nd floor corridor connecting Barbour and Whip Salon in the new Bedford Square retail complex in downtown Westport. The entrance is at the top of the stairs across the street from The Spotted Horse. Owners Amy Pal and Kevin Manley created the gallery to help promote talented emerging local artists, create synergies between the gallery and surrounding Bedford Square and Church Lane merchants, and make the buying process transparent and easy for collectors while leveraging an underutilized space with natural foot traffic. The gallery is open during the normal business hours of Bedford Square, or by appointment.
