From 5-7pm in our Tasting Room
Alyssa Voytek is an artist, educator, mentor and ally based in Woodbury, CT.
She earned both her BA in Studio Art and Masters of Fine Art from Western Connecticut State University and is currently teaching art at the Alternative Center for Excellence in Danbury, CT. Her work includes drawings on paper, gouache on board, and oil on canvas. Her art is rooted in the investigation of still-life, inspired by the courage and forward-thinking nature of the Cubists.
On reflection of her work, Alyssa writes,
“I aim to push the boundaries of a still-life painting — that has always been a driving force for me…My work begins in the studio. I build my own observed spaces and drawings from my own objects; things I’ve collected, created, and curated. Mirrors allow me to distort perspectives and deconstruct the conventional perceptual space within the rectangle. I draw inspiration from the quiet, un-staged, often unseen moments of beauty in our everyday lives. These moments of light, organic repetition or of reflection often find their way into my finished works.”
