This October, you are cordially invited to the Geary Gallery of Darien to see “Meditative Oceans” featuring the abstract paintings of Massachusetts artist, Rosemary Banfield. Her exhibit runs October 2- 31.
Rosemary Banfield lives on the outskirts of Boston, MA where she works from her home studio as a full-time painter and illustrator.
She was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa and studied at the Johannesburg College of Education, specializing in elementary education and art.
As a teacher and an artist, Banfield experienced firsthand the positive effects art and creativity had on the children she taught, and this engendered in her a deep love of illustration and visual storytelling.
A favorite subject for Banfield is water, and more specifically, the beach and ocean, as demonstrated by two of her works shown here. The paintings inspire meditation and introspection, when observed. She has exhibited and sold paintings throughout South Africa and the United States and has illustrated two children’s books.
Rosemary Banfield’s exhibit runs October 2 – 31 and her paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome and admission is free. To view some of her work, visit our online gallery.
Geary Gallery is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is located at 576 Boston Post Road, Darien, CT 06820. For more information, call (203) 655-6633.
