Connecticut Artist to have exhibit in Mayor’s Gallery in Stamford
Stamford Watercolorist Bob Callahan to exhibit the Art of the Sketchbook from March 3 to April 30 in the Mayor’s Gallery, 10th Floor, Government Center, Stamford, Connecticut.
January 22, 2013 - STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford designer and watercolorist Bob Callahan will be exhibiting the “Art of the Sketchbook” during an exhibit in the Mayor’s Gallery from March 3 to April 30. Visitors are invited to the gallery to see how Bob draws inspiration from his daily sketchbook, interpreting what he sees into watercolors that capture the essence of the subjects he paints. Actual sketchbooks will be available to peruse.
Bob is a visual thinker. He communicates ideas through design, presents marketing solutions graphically, and engages the reader with images that evoke a response. Bob likes to disrupt expectations. He says “the solution to a problem lies within the problem itself.”
For the business world, he has the unique ability to transform his clients’ communications goals into campaigns that talk to customers who listen. For the arts world, he orchestrates pitch-perfect promotions that never fail to fill the house. For fellow authors and artists, he infuses passion with compassion to draw out the very essence of the work the world needs to see. He often puts himself into the picture, in the form of his own photography, and in original sketches and watercolor vignettes that give his work and message an even greater visual impact.
Not surprisingly, his 50+ year career as an artist and graphic designer has taken him up the corporate ladder, into design firms, publishing houses and out on his own. He has been a guest lecturer on “Visual Thinking” at the University of Connecticut, an avid participant at the annual International Design Conference in Aspen for more than 30 years, and an actor, singer and narrator (Peter and The Wolf) with the Stamford Symphony. At 78, he still retains a loyal client following, working tirelessly and timely on projects that merit continued professional recognition.
In his free time he is a painter, photographer and author. He has been featured in one-man art shows where his watercolors were the star attractions and he is currently working on a book titled “Great Lighthouses of the World” featuring original watercolors of lighthouses that shine a beacon on historic nautical landmarks around the world. That his talent is now going to be put on view for the community when he exhibits in the Mayor’s Gallery is a rare opportunity to become part of Bob’s artistic vision.
Reception for the artist, Thursday, March 6th from 5:30 – 7:30pm.
