May 7th 2014 Guest Artist

       WENDY SWAIN

Wendy Swain has been sculpting in various mediums for the last 18 years, first in the studio of Sara Aldouby of Trumbull, then in the studios of Marc-Anthony Massaro in  Branford, Steffi Friedman in  Westport and Susan Clinard in New Haven.  Now she is a studio member of the New Canaan Sculpture Group under the guidance of Sergey Eylanbekov
 
Wendy sculpts mostly in clay although she has done several alabaster pieces and has had some of her work bronzed.   She is interested in sculpting the human figure and especially in exploring inner emotions that can be expressed through sculpture.   She has participated in a number of juried shows with the Society of Connecticut Sculptors, the Carriage Barn Gallery, the Case Memorial Library and the Lyme Art Association.  One of her sculptures, “Bare Love” was voted the second most popular piece in the 2009 exhibit at the Acton Library in Old Saybrook.   Wendy is the President of the Society of Connecticut Sculptors and also maintains their online newsletter.  (Her work is on the website—ctsculptors.org.)
 
       Wendy had a 23 year career as a teacher of French and Spanish in Fairfield, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Stratford.  She has always had a keen interest in art, and her degrees from Boston University and the University of Arizona include art history as her minor.  She loves to travel  around the world with her husband, Bob.  She lives in Stratford and enjoys opening the eyes of her 5 grandchildren to the beauty and art in nature.

Welcome to our site.

  The Cheshire Art League was organized in 1959.

  We encourage "art appreciation" through demonstrations in painting, drawing techniques and the  use of different media. The Art League is dedicated to individual and community awareness of the Arts and how they reflect and affect our culture. The Art League also provides information regarding the business side of being an artist. We provide a meeting place to encourage camaraderie, and and the possibility of earnings through sales of members' art.

It's a great way to meet artists from other communities and often initiate new friendships based on a common interest.

The Art League is an indicator to verify to members they are serious artists.

Meetings are free an open to the public
