The Marlborough Arts Center presents artist Aldo Passarelli at the Town Hall Gallery, 26 North Main Street in Marlborough, CT. The Town Hall is open for business daily from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., with the exception of Friday when it closes at 12 noon. His art lining the hallways at Town Hall is certainly worth a visit even when you have no business to pursue.
Aldo Passarelli’s exhibit consists of 13 works that represent his exploration of pastel and colored pencil media since 2012. The landscapes and images represent his desire to capture the unique qualities of mood and color of a place. He has chosen works that have a theme of water in its many moods: scenes of rivers, ponds, and ocean.
Passarelli earned an B.S. in Art Education from Southern Connecticut State University, a M.A. in Art Studio from Kent State University, and is certified by the State of Connecticut to teach Elementary Education. He has taught in the Public Schools of Newington, WIndham, and Old Saybrook. He was also a part of the Summer Urban Arts Program in Hartford and was an Adjunct Instructor in Ceramics at Southern Connecticut State University.
He has been an award winning artist since 1970 from various exhibitions in Connecticut including shows in New Haven, Hartford, Brookfield, Talcottville, Manchester, Cornwall, and Marlborough. He has also exhibited on Kent, Ohio and in many state Galleries. He is a present artist member of the Marlborough Arts Center, and is also a member of the Board of Directors.
His art will be on view at the Marlborough Town Hall through September and October 2015.
