“The Ides of March” – plein air painting by Mona Stratos, is on exhibit at the Spirol Art Gallery at Quinebaug Valley Community College through April 6.
Stratos’s landscape paintings of oil on linen feature many areas in rural Connecticut as well as the coasts of Massachusetts and Maine. Her energetic and broad brushwork combined with well-defined patterns of light and shadow convey a peaceful atmosphere in her paintings.
A reception for the artist will be held Thursday, March 22, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The public is invited to attend and admission is free.
