Karl Goulet’s Art Show     
February 21 - April 1

Karl Goulet is a Connecticut-based emerging artist who received his BFA in painting in 2014 from the Hartford Art School. He works across multiple mediums including painting, drawing and mixed media and has exhibited his work throughout Connecticut.  Working in his current palette of ivory and obsidian, he captures the spirit of his two dogs, “a whirlwind of pure muscle and teeth… a force of nature… which merge to become one abstract form” and “the basis of my explorations.”
