“Psychology of Art,” A Multi-Media Exhibit by Robert & Dr.Lyn Harmon

"Psychology of Art," an exhibition of paintings and sculptures opens Sunday, March 30 and runs through April 30, 2014 at Les Beaux Arts Gallery, located in the Round Hill Community Church, 395 Round Hill Road, Greenwich. The exhibit combines two artists, husband and wife, Robert and Dr. Lyn Harmon whose aesthetics relate to emotional and spiritual perception. Dr. Harmon is a Psychotherapist who works primarily with artists and writers to enhance their creative process. She has lectured and given workshops combining psychology, spirituality, health and healing, and the creative process. At an early age, she started painting and never stopped. She works with water based paints such as acrylics and watercolor. She also uses oil pastels with colored inks. Her early paintings have a strong Chinese influence. Later on, she evolved into a more abstract form inspired by her frequents travels to South America, Africa, Asia and Antarctica. She listens to music while she paints allowing the rhythm to shape her forms and colors. Her compositions are well structured and enriched with vibrant hues. Dr. Harmon views the world in unique ways that reflect her experiences, knowledge and emotions. There is an emotional attachment that drives her focus on her art allowing her to be in tune with it. Her creative process grows and changes to acquire new meaning and new interpretation providing insight into our lives. Basically, her artwork reflects a 'lived experience' not a 'scrutiny of details.' Dr. Harmon studied at The Art Students League in New York City and The School for Sacred Art with professor Zhang. Locally, she studied at The Silvermine School of Art. Recently, she took up digital art and photography exploring the possibilities and parameters. Mr. Harmon has been working with sculptures for over thirty years. He used wood material when he worked in Greenwich and bronze casting from a lost wax process when he spent time in Mexico. His forms are inspired by his interest of ancient myths, mainly the cultures of Central America. Mr Harmon traveled extensively studying the art of sculpture of Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Polynesia, Central America and Europe. In 1986, the Harmons spent a year in Italy where Bob studied at S.A.C.I., an art school in Florence, and worked with Sr. Marcello Guasty, a well known Florentine sculptor. Bob also worked in the Fonderia Mariani bronze foundry in Pietra Santa. For more information about “Psychology of Art,” visit roundhillcommunitychurch.org or call (203) 869-1091

23rd Annual Long Island Sound Citizens Summit

Long Island Sound has seen much change since Adriaen Block sailed its length 400 years ago. Urban centers sprung up on its shores, fishing industries persevered through booms and busts, and water quality struggled to cope with pollution. Recognizing we were facing a tipping point, the 1994 Long Island Sound Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (“CCMP”) was established as a blueprint to protect and restore this culturally important estuary. The 2014 Summit will bring together a wide variety of stakeholders – including businesses, universities, and members of the public – to highlight this historic moment and to discuss and prioritize goals and strategies for Long Island Sound's updated management blueprint. This highly anticipated conference is loaded with experts from the scientific, cultural and community fields and will feature Long Island Sound advocates, agencies and particpation from the public to discuss the Long Island Sound's past, present and future and prioritize goals and straegies for the CCMP. The conference will conclude with a government action panel that will highlight the CCMP themes and priorities from the breakout session, while addressing the best ways to communicate successes and promote funding for the four CCMP areas.
