OCT 3rd   “For Love of the Land,” New work by Sybil Perry at Covered Bridge Gallery in the Pottery shop, West Cornwall, CT

Sybil Perry notes, “As a painter I’m drawn to the outdoors and have a strong need to be a part of nature’s seasonal rhythms.  The smells of the earth nourish me.  Observing the landscape puts me in closer touch with the spirit.  It is where I feel most connected.  It feeds my soul.  When I come upon a scene, it must be something that stops my heart and makes my throat ache.   My real love is color, and pastel is now my medium of choice.   I play with the colors, encouraging the final painting to emerge.”   This exhibit will include over 30 new paintings.  Sybil Perry’s website is www.sybilmperry.com  
The exhibition runs October 3 - November 29.  Artist reception: Saturday, October 10 from 3 to 5, with wine and hors d’oeuvres.  Artist talk: Saturday, October 24 at 3pm.  
   Morning Ride
