He has degrees in fine art from the University of Connecticut and the University of Hartford and an MA in Teaching from Sacred Heart University in Fairfield.

Karen LeSage – “New Paintings”
All day long
from 05-24-17 to 07-15-17

Originally from eastern CT, Karen LeSage studied at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She lived and worked in Manhattan for over a decade, eventually moving to her weekend home in Litchfield County.

LeSage began exhibiting her work locally in 2003.  Sold-out shows in local venues led to representation by commercial galleries, larger work, and regional recognition. In recent years her work has been featured in national magazines, expanding her following throughout the U.S. and Canada.

This group of paintings continues her tradition of translating the color and pattern of the natural world into large, atmospheric canvases. She describes her work as “a dance between realism and abstraction, and this group of paintings as “a dive into spring and summer.”

The exhibit continues through July 15.

An artist’s reception will be held Saturday, June at 5:00 pm.
