Echoes From Across the Ocean highlights Cromwell’s diversity of artistic exploration with large paintings, dynamic drawings, and colorful collages representing in part his migration from Guyana to Connecticut, where he now lives and works. His artwork repeatedly gives homage to his homeland of Guyana, on South America’s North Atlantic coast, with richly abundant saturated colors, intense textures, and vivid patterns.

This exhibition is made possible by Rosemary Tracy Woods and the Art of the Soul Gallery in Springfield, Vonetta Lightfoot and the Black Professional Group (BPG), Fine Arts and AHSS Department at STCC.

Landscapes are typically thought of as representations of nature or parts of the natural world. The “playscapes” in this show invoke the sense of place or elements of the natural world, but through less traditional representations that encourage the viewer to be aware of their relationship to the world around them. These landscapes are created for play, imagination, reflection, and personal moments. The works in this show highlight the physicality of the artists’ process and mediums they work with such as watercolor, ink, foam prints, collage, photography, sculpture, and even natural materials such as hay and sheep’s wool.

Reception: TBA
