(Torrington, CT) – The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital (CHH) Auxiliary is displaying the paintings of artist Anita Gregorski, NEWS, CWS, from November 1st through early December 2015 in the hospital’s main lobby hallway, 540 Litchfield Street, Torrington. The public is invited to view the works during regular visiting hours as part of the Auxiliary’s ongoing “Artist of the Month” program. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork support the CHH Auxiliary and Charlotte Hungerford Hospital.
Anita enjoys painting in oil and acrylics, but loves painting in watercolor. Her works capture the colors and atmosphere of familiar scenes so common in New England. “The satisfaction and joy I receive from creating a painting is a gift I will always appreciate. I like to find that bit of nostalgia, record that weathered look or catch the light on fresh fallen snow.” She stated. Anita explores new methods and mediums and is grateful for the guidance and inspiration she receives. A tiny angel can be found in many of her paintings.
Anita is a signature member of Northwest Watercolor Society, Connecticut Watercolor Society, Academic Artists and Kent Art Association. She is active in local art leagues and has served as judge, on boards, and as chairperson of many shows. She was on the Governing Board of the Waterbury Arts Collaborate, is Secretary to Naugatuck River Watershed, Treasurer of Watertown Art League and Coordinator for the annual Safe Haven Art Show in Southbury. Her award winning work is exhibited throughout the area and can be found at Plain Jane’s Restaurant, Woodbury Diner, LaSalle Market, Charcoal Chief, Center Gallery in West Hartford, Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook and at local art shows, or at www.anitagregorski.com.
