The Register Citizen (Torrington, CT) - - YOUR WEEKEND -

“Kent Hol­low” by Juan J. Moreno. KENT » Kent artist Juan J. Moreno will have his art­work dis­played in the Kent Me­mo­rial Li­brary’s gallery from Septem­ber 1 through Oc­to­ber 31 in an ex­hi­bi­tion, “Com­po­si­tion Con­trast Color.”

Born in Colom­bia, Moreno, stud­ied at the ate­lier of David Manzur in Bo­gota, Colom­bia, be­fore mov­ing to Con­necti­cut, where he has lived since 1986.

He stud­ied fig­ure draw­ing and por­trait paint­ing at the Art Stu­dents League of New York and stu­dio art at West­ern Con­necti­cut State Univer­sity, earn­ing a B.A. and M.F.A. His work has been in many ex­hi­bi­tions and is in pri­vate col­lec­tions. Moreno taught stu­dio art and art his­tory at the col­lege level in Con­necti­cut.

“De­part­ing from a strictly rep­re­sen­ta­tional de­pic­tion of na­ture, I mod­ify my paint­ings as I see nec­es­sary un­til I feel they are fin­ished. I seek to ex­plore the dy­nam­ics of color and the il­lu­sion of space within the lim­ited two-di­men­sional can­vas and in­vite the viewer to in­ter­pret my work and be­come part of the cre­ative process,” says the artist.

Meet the artist at re­cep­tion on Satur­day, Oct. 21 from 3-6 p.m. in the gallery. It is free and open to the pub­lic, reg­is­tra­tion is re­quested.
