Windsor Art Center Opens New Exhibition on March 9th
The Windsor Art Center opens "Imagine 2: Art from the Heart: Selected artworks by Dan J. Ferraina and Jane G. Pelton". The exhibition runs from March 9 through April 13. Join us in celebrating the works of these two long-time residents of Windsor. Finding artistic expression to be vital to their personal journeys, each artist has been on a self-directed exploration of color, composition and concept in uniquely different styles. As a result, they have created art that speaks from the heart.

Exhibition opens with a FREE public reception: Meet the artists on Saturday, March 9, 2019, from 5 – 7:00 pm (Snow date: Sunday, March 10, 2-4 pm).

About the Artists
Dan J. Ferraina has been a resident of Windsor, Connecticut, for 73 years. After graduating from UCONN with a degree in zoology, he taught science for a few years, soon thereafter embarking on a lifetime of developing real estate. He presently owns commercial real estate and is a firm believer in philanthropy. He and his wife of sixty years have three children and seven grandchildren. Mr. Ferraina has created three-dimensional art and drawings as long as he can remember. After experiencing a severe illness several years ago, he managed his own rehabilitation by using art as therapy. His first exhibit at the Windsor Art Center in 2017 displayed his miniature buildings made from a continuous piece of cardboard. Now, Dan’s exploration in two-dimensions deconstructs 3D shapes, creating dynamic and fascinating works that give viewers a chance to interpret and explore multiple viewpoints of their own.

Jane G. Pelton has been a resident of Windsor, Connecticut, since 1962. After graduating from Middlebury College with a degree in art history, she moved to Hartford and began working at Travelers before becoming a teacher at the John Fitch School in Windsor. She married her husband Lon, and they began raising a family while starting their lifelong devotion of owning and operating an excavating and building business. They have three daughters and two grandchildren. Although Ms. Pelton’s immersion in painting began just 15 years ago, the solid foundation in art studies and design she gained at Middlebury is embedded deeply in her paintings today. She explored plein air painting for many years, developing her ability to quickly portray a moment in time whether it be a landscape, leaf or creature. Her approach to painting and her style come naturally from the heart, using shapes and colors found in nature as the fundamental structure of her work.

The Windsor Art Center, Windsor, Connecticut, is a nonprofit organization that promotes the visual and performing arts and presents visual art exhibits showcasing the works of a variety of artists working in diverse media and genres. There is no charge to visit the gallery or the on-site gift shop which features locally made art. Parking is free and easily accessible.
