FAIRFIELD, CONN.- A new exhibition at the Walsh Gallery at Fairfield University features sculptor Marc Mellon, painter Jane Sutherland and photographer Philip Trager. Visitors to this show will relish the unique opportunity to see Mellon’s classically inspired life-size bronze sculptures of dancers juxtaposed with Sutherland’s intriguing Little Dancer paintings, a series directly inspired by Edgar Degas’ great work of this same name. Finally, Trager’s silver gelatin and platinum prints of dancers — whether airborne or with bodies quieted into astoundingly expressive postures —delight the eye as much as they do the mind and the spirit.

“We are really pleased to present the innovative exhibition, DANCE, which features the works of three talented and renowned Connecticut-based artists--sculptor Marc Mellon, painter Jane Sutherland and photographer Philip Trager. All three have found artistic inspiration in the subject of Dance, and in different ways their works all capture the elegance, grace, physicality, and emotionally expressive quality of this ancient form of human expression,” said Linda Wolk-Simon, director and chief curator of University Museums.

The exhibition will be on view through January 22, 2016. Upcoming events scheduled in conjunction with this exhibition include a free gallery talk with Marc Mellon on Tuesday, November 10, and an extensive program of contemporary dance at the Quick Center complementing this exhibition. Performers include Emily Coates and Sarah Demers on November 15 and Savion Glover’s “DANCE HOLIDAY SPeCTacULaR” on December 6. Judith Jamison, artistic director emerita of the Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, will speak at the Open VISIONS Forum on January 31, 2016 at 3 p.m. Tickets for these events are available through the Quick Center Box Office (203-254-4010) or at

Admission to the Walsh Art Gallery is always free. Hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. when the University is in session, and one hour before Quick Center performances plus select Saturdays; see website calendar for details. The Walsh Art Gallery is located in the Quick Center for the Arts on the campus of Fairfield University.
