The Loft Gallery will host a collection of works by abstract painter and collage artist, Tom Hlas of Norfolk, Connecticut.
An artist's reception will be held on Saturday, January 14 from 4-6pm. The reception is open and free to the community.
Tom works primarily in acrylics and mixed media. His abstract work is often times conceptual, allowing the viewer to draw their own inspiration, meaning and enjoyment from each piece. He finds kinship and inspiration in the abstract expressionists, color field painters, and contemporary print makers and minimalist artists.
Tom studied drawing and painting with Ken and Laura Conley at Montgomery Community College in Rockville, Maryland. He was awarded a one-month artist residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont in 2009 and 2010.
