Ridgefield, Conn. (November 20, 2023) – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm’s Ridgefield brokerage is mounting a new exhibit at its on-premises satellite art gallery as part of its collaboration with the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. The exhibit, titled “Amalgamation,” will feature the works of local artists Gazmend Bakalli, Tina Phillips and Donnelly Rodgers.
Rodgers was recently selected as the winner of the Ridgefield brokerage’s first Emerging Artist Scholarship. A senior at Ridgefield High School, Rodgers creates photorealistic artwork meant to trick the eye into thinking the works are actual photographs. Philips is a Danbury-based artist whose watercolors capture landscapes, florals, animals and seasonal changes in nature. Bakalli, also Danbury-based, is known for golden-hued portraits done in monotype on paper.
To celebrate the debut of the new exhibit, the office, located at 470 Main Street in Ridgefield, will host a reception on opening night, Wednesday, November 29, from 5:30-7:30 pm. The event is open to the public, and the exhibit will be accessible thereafter through March 2024 during office hours.
All works on exhibit are available for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
The collaboration between William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists showcases the works of emerging artists with the hope of providing opportunities and bringing awareness to local talent. Shows are curated by William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty agent Paul Gervais alongside the Ridgefield Guild of Artists board’s executive director Pam Stoddart.
