Gunn Library Stairwell Gallery New Art Exhibit
"Art of Imagined Landscapes"
Alissa Morabito paintings at Gunn Library
Alissa Morabito has an obsession with beautiful landscapes and paints them through a retrospective and romanticized view. “I paint to bridge the gap between the real world and the perceived world,” she explains. “I want to capture that fleeting bit of magic that forever remains locked away in our memories.” An exhibit of Morabito’s amazing paintings will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington, Conn. from February 3 to March 17.
“I have an impassioned longing for light,” she points out. “Capturing the light is everything; it is what makes an ordinary landscape or figure ethereal.” Morabito feels that most moments in life, especially the ones we hold the closest to our hearts cannot often be captured on film. “Every painting, every stroke, starts from a memory and is linked with a feeling.”
