“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

Good Friday Service and Concert

Annual Good Friday Service and Concert. presented by The First Congregational Church of Greenwich and First Music & Arts Series The First Congregational Church of Greenwich invites you to a special choral performance of Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem. Our annual tradition of presenting a time to gather on Good Friday continues this year on April 18 at 8:00 P.M. with a performance of the moving masterpiece, Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. Our outstanding Chancel Choir and soloists, Linnea Conley, soprano, and Thomas Woodman, bass, will be accompanied on the organ by our Director of Music, Dr. Craig Scott Symons. This will be a special performance dedicated to the memory of Timothy Manchester, the son of one of our pastors, Rev. Avery Manchester, who tragically lost his life on May 1, 2013. Fauré’s setting of Requiem is Avery’s favorite and will be a very special way of honoring Tim’s life. Composed between 1887 and 1890, Faure had no clear reasons for writing this work, other than “…for pleasure, if I may call it that!” Originally, the score was written for orchestra, chorus, soloists, and organ and was sung in Latin. Later, in 1899-1900, Faure re-scored it for full orchestra and the first performance in the United States took place in 1931. We invite you to attend this special performance as a way of continuing your Holy Week journey. A free-will offering will be received to help support the ongoing work of the First Music & Arts outreach ministry of this church.
Time: 8:00 P.M.
