Despite the treachery of wind and rain, a group of loyal art lovers attended the opening reception for Robert Brennan’s exhibit at the Easton Public Library. The exhibit varies in style from vibrant abstract expressionistic paintings to cool neo-minimalist constructions.

Brennan’s Explorations in Abstraction exhibition will be on display till Oct. 31. Those who wish to view it are encouraged to call the library at 203-261-0134 to see if the community room is open for viewing.

Following are a few of the comments from the appreciative group who attended the opening:

“He has made this space into a museum.”
“Exceptional craftsmanship.”

As another person said, “This is an exhibit not to be missed!”

Brennan has been an artist for more than 60 years, 50 of them here in his Easton studio. He has won national and international awards, and his work has been shown in Connecticut and New York City, yet he is generally unknown to the New York art world.

He has served as a highly regarded teacher at the university level (chairman of the University of Bridgeport Art Department), public school level (coordinator of art, K-12, Darien School System), and the art school level (Silvermine School of Art).
