The opening reception for his exhibit, entitled “Stories,” will be held on Wednesday, April 16 at 2:00 p.m. at The Watermark, located at 3030 Park Avenue on the Bridgeport-Fairfield town line. Favret will discuss his work during the reception, which will include light refreshments and entertainment by pianist Tony Procaccini.
For his exhibit, Favret has created a series of paintings that depict the human form and the struggles we experience in our everyday lives. His work often showcases a sense of tension through an unusual point of view or a distortion of space. Many of his pieces are large-scale, which allows people to view at a distance, and up-close for a more detailed perspective.
“I find great inspiration in my own life experiences, and when I look back on my work, I see images straight from my memory or imagination,” said Favret. “I am thrilled to present this collection to the public, and hope that viewers will be able to take my experiences and interpret them as it relates to their own lives.”
Favret’s work has been exhibited nationally, including galleries in San Francisco, Dallas and Boston. He is a graduate of Bridgewater State College in Massachusetts, and received an MFA in painting from East Texas State University. He also holds a Certificate in Computer Graphics from the Rhode Island School of Design, where he worked for several years teaching courses in computer graphics.
In 1999 he was hired as a Graphic Design Instructor at Housatonic Community College, where he now serves as Art Program Coordinator.
