Darien artist Tina Duryea will show recent portraits at Brendan’s 101 in Rowayton, starting with a reception 7-9 p.m. Saturday Aug. 13. The show runs all month.
Duryea’s contemporary snapshot type compositions capture her subjects’ emotion and personality. Her portraits are executed primarily on Yupo Paper, a 100% recyclable, tree-free plastic paper made in the U.S. She is one of a handful of artists working with this highly specialized paper in oils.
Tina’s specializes in portraits of children and animals but also is known for her abstract landscapes and large scale equestrian portraits.
A lifelong resident of Darien, Tina is a graduate of Darien High School, Mount Holyoke College and the School of Visual Arts.
