Scents & Soles

Date/Time

Description

Scents & Soles at the Westport Arts Center features 230 watercolor paintings by renowned photorealist painter, Robert Cottingham and 23 witty shoe sculptures by Nina Bentley.

Robert Cottingham has been an icon in the world of photorealism. He received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1974-75 and had a retrospective at the Smithsonian Museum in 1986. Four years ago Cottingham turned his attention to the new subject matter of perfume bottles. Because of its fluidity and clarity, watercolor became the obvious choice of medium. 

Nina Bentley is an assemblage artist who has lived in Westport for 21 years. She has exhibited in Europe and America, including the Westport Arts Center on several occasions. In 2005 she had a solo exhibition at Silvermine Art Guild and was also chosen by Barney's New York in 2004 to be their featured artist in the annual show "Madison Avenue: Where Fashion Meets Art" in 2004. In 2001 she was a New/Now artist at the New Britain Museum of American Art, which has one of her large assemblage sculptures in their permanent collection.
