The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani at Gallery 195 at First Niagara Bank, 195 Church St., 4th floor, New Haven. The exhibition will be on display during bank hours from September 14 through December 9, 2011. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13, from 5 to 7pm. The public is invited to attend.

 

The exhibit will feature paintings by Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani.  The artists vividly render their works from Detrani’s energetic, linear “imaginative landscapes” to Butler’s juxtaposition of brilliant color against stark backgrounds.
