All Day

The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is proud to present The Art of Lolita Valderrama Savage: Nature of Tuscany, Stamford & Beyond, an exhibition of 50 Impressionist-style artworks by internationally recognized artist and Stamford resident Lolita Valderrama Savage. An opening reception for SM&NC members and invited guests will be held at the museum on Friday, September 16, 6:30 pm to 9 pm. To RSVP to the opening reception, please contact Allison Biele or 203.977.6546 by September 1. Her newest exhibition, at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center, will include sketches, drawings, oils and pastels created at various locations, with a focus on the tranquil beauty found in the landscapes of Tuscany, Italy, and Stamford, CT. The works have been chosen to illustrate the parallel elements of beauty found in all countries, while demonstrating the diverse color palettes and visual textures created by the differences in the seasons, sunlight and landscape composition found in each locale.“Lolita’s paintings reveal a universal theme - there is beauty in nature, wherever it may be,” says Melissa H. Mulrooney, Executive Director and CEO of the SM&NC. “Her work also inspires a sense of serenity and optimism for the global community, and that is a message that we wholeheartedly embrace at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. We are absolutely delighted to be able to present Lolita’s art and vision to our members and to all in our community who have an appreciation for fine art."The opening of the exhibition will be followed by the SM&NC’s Fall Farm to Table Supper on Saturday, October 1. The evening will begin with locally sourced, artisanal hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, followed by a pre-dinner gallery tour led by the artist. Tickets for the Fall Farm to Table Supper will be available online August 1. Proceeds from this exceptional dining experience, sponsored by First County Bank, will support the mission and vision of the Stamford Museum & Nature Center.
