paintings by Constance LaPalombara
On exhibit from March 29th - April 30th
Artist Reception: Sunday, March 29th 2pm-5pm
“My aim is to understand the color of light, and the color of light in shadow, and in this way create a sense of place that speaks beyond the physicality of the paint.”
While Constance LaPalombara is perhaps best identified as a painter of the urban landscape of New Haven, her interests also include still life and interiors. An important influence on her work has been time spent painting in Italy, especially with regard to the quality of light. In fact, reviewers of her work, which has been shown extensively in Italy and the United States, have typically hailed her sense of light and color as hallmarks of her paintings.
LaPalombara’s most recent exhibit, summer 2014, was in Northeast Harbor, Maine, where she is represented by the Star Gallery. A profile of her is included in “The Artist Next Door” (2005), a book that features artists of New Haven. Her MFA is from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, l982.
