Centerbrook Artistry Takes Center Stage
The Drill Bit Gallery here at Centerbrook Architects has a new show exhibiting the many extracurricular talents of the architectural staff.
The exhibit, titled “Centerbrook Artistry,” recently opened with 30 physical works ranging from oil and water color paintings to a sculpted red clay fish and 3D-printed horse pelvic bones. The gallery also includes nearly 100 images of additional works from 10 different artists via a rotating digital display.
The gallery is a tremendous look into the creativity and skill of the staff beyond their day jobs as building designers. A number of the staff, in fact, were led to architecture through an initial passion for art that was cultivated in school. Some inherited the creativity gene from parents that were artists. Others have taken to painting well after their architecture careers began, as an additional creative outlet.
The public is welcome to stop in (67 Main St., Centerbrook) and see the gallery anytime during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Many of the pieces are also featured in this online gallery with details and descriptions provided by the artists.
