C. Parker Gallery will be open for several weeks before the holidays to "launch" the redesign of its website, cparkergallery.com, and so the Fairfield County community can learn more about this private art collection of original oil paintings. Tiffany Benincasa, the Gallery's principal, says she also wants to give back to some of the local nonprofits the gallery supports, so she will be hosting holiday gatherings for several of those community nonprofits.
As a private art dealer, the Gallery has long been a hidden resource for interior designers and decorators. Benincasa feels that being open to the public for the next several weeks will provide an exceptional opportunity for residents to come in and ask questions. “People shouldn’t feel intimidated by art galleries,” she says, inviting people to come in and visit her at 17 East Putnam Avenue to see the collection while it is open to the public. "Art is a very personal experience and enriches our lives more than most people recognize," she says
Benincasa notes that the Gallery’s new website gives viewers a flavor of the range of original oils that are on view. “There are world renowned impressionist artists in the collection as well as emerging artists who are part of the next generation,” Benincasa says. "Art enriches our lives more than most people recognize. You can have a beautiful house, but by adding beautiful art that reflects your personality, you really create a home."
C. Parker Gallery provides a full range of art related services, including consultation, design, and installation.
C. Parker Gallery is open until December 24 at 17 East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Sunday. The gallery's website is www.cparkergallery.com.
