ARTalk: An Artist for All Seasons with Painter Dmitri Wright
Award-winning impressionist and expressionist American landscape painter Dmitri Wright seeks to capture the moment when the natural environment of light through colors comes into existence. Applying expressive elements and using a vibrant, rhythmic palette, Wright’s brushwork reveals and transcends the representational foundation he received in his training which was rooted in the academy’s classics. In this ARTalk, Wright will talk about his career and journeys throughout the United States, Europe, West Indies, Central and South America, and China as a master fine artist/instructor. Wright’s work is housed in numerous museum, corporate, and private collections.
Dmitri Wright is the Master Artist/Instructor for Weir Farm National Historic Site, the National Park dedicated to American Impressionism. Wright, in the tradition of John Henry Twachtman founder of the Cos Cob Art Colony, is the first artist-in-residence instructing and lecturing at the Greenwich Historic Society, the birthplace of American Impressionism. He also instructs at Silvermine Art School and privately. In the USA and Europe he gives workshops and museum tours in addition to being a judge for art shows. This program is co-sponsored by the Ridgefield Library and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
