NORWALK, Conn. – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty’s Rowayton brokerage will host an artist reception with artist Charlotte Sabbagh Sunday as part of the “Sundays at Sotheby’s” series, a monthly program in which the office welcomes new local artists to display in its office.
A native of Denmark, Sabbagh gets much of her artistic inspiration from her country of origin, where she continually returns each summer. She follows a contemporary artistic style, and is commonly drawn to the natural contrast of light and dark displayed in the natural beauty of the world.
Sabbagh currently resides in Rowayton, and over the years has studied art at Parsons Fine Arts program in New York and the NYC Studio School, as well as Silvermine Arts Center in Connecticut. Her work consists of abstract paintings using oils, acrylics and mixed media, and has been shown in various individual and group exhibitions throughout Connecticut, New York City and Europe.
Sabbagh also does commission work, integrating the painting with a site-specific approach, in which she considers the space, materials, colors and personal interaction between the artist and client, to create a unique piece of art.
The reception will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served in a casual setting with opportunities to talk with Sabbagh and discuss her work. All events of the evening are open to the public.
“We are all so excited to kick off the first of our ‘Sunday’s at Sotheby’s’ artist receptions with the wonderful work of Charlotte Sabbagh,” said Darien agent Molly Crosland, who spearheads much of the brokerage’s artist series. “Her paintings flawlessly depict the often overlooked beauties of this world, reflecting scenes of both her life here, as well as her beloved homeland of Denmark. Displaying Sabbagh’s artwork is a wonderful way to start the new year.”
William Pitt Sotheby's International Realty is located at 147 Rowayton Ave., Norwalk.
