JUNE: Al Bialos - Bold, Colorful, Rhythmic
Show dates: June 7 - July 8, 2013
All are invited to the opening reception during Milford's "Art After Dark" on Saturday, June 8 from 6-9 pm.
The Artery Gallery celebrates The Milford Music Festival by exhibiting the bold, rhythmic, and colorful paintings by artist Al Bialos. Al joined The ARTery in 2004 and he has been showing his work ever since. The Milford Music Festival is celebrated June 7, 8, 9. The festival is free to all who attend and features a wide variety of musical styles as well as a sidewalk shopping festival throughout the business district. Music during The Milford Music Festival is sponsored by the individual business owners in the Milford Business District presenting musical acts at their individual premises.
Al Bialos, whose work portrays musicians and reflects the bold, colorful sounds of jazz was featured on the new website Milford Now! March 17, 2013, Preston Ehrler wrote about Bialos; "originally from Brooklyn, entered the service during the Korean War era, later attending The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan on the G.I. Bill. Bialos worked in an art supply store that was across the street from the Art Students League, where he studied with "a couple of really well-known, important artists, back from the abstract expressionist days, [including] Theorodous Stamos." Yet space was at a premium and Bialos needed more room to work. "I didn't have enough space to work and we came out [to Milford] to visit a friend, and we looked around. We kind of liked the place and it was easy to get to New York and so we bought a small A-Frame, but I have a big studio in the bottom of the A-Frame, so it worked out nice." Describing his work, Bialos says that it is "mostly figurative" calling it "post-modern figurative."
The ARTery invites you to join us for Milford's "Art After Dark" on Saturday, June 8 from 6 - 9 pm for a free evening of art, music and food. Contemporary Jazz by Eric Hedick: playing standards, new standards and improvisation on the piano.
