Pinacoteca

896 Bantam Rd., Bantam, CT 06750.

Mia Weiner has been a NY private dealer specializing in Old Master Drawings since 1979 noted for her knowledge and integrity. Her new gallery hopes to inform and inspire a new clientele by exhibiting European Paintings and Drawings from the 16th through 21st Centuries. The Gallery will focus on painters of the 19th and 20th centuries who sojourned in Italy and created visions of its beauty. Old Master Drawings comprised of astute studies in pen & ink or colored chalks, were rarely intended to be seen, because they were preparatory sketches, but these renderings reveal the artists' thoughts and are immensely rewarding. See these extraordinary works, starting at $1000. Hours: Fri.- Sun., 1:30 – 6:30 pm, or by appt. (860) 480-0100.
