For the month of February, local artist Eric Armusik will host an exhibition in The Empty Spaces Project gallery in Putnam, CT titled, “Tragic Love.” The exhibit will feature recent paintings by the artist that center on the theme of love throughout the ages in the stories of mythology, literature and religion. An opening reception for the exhibit will be on Feb. 8 from 5 - 8:30 p.m.

Though many of the themes of Armusik’s paintings did not have happy endings the intention of the exhibit is to celebrate love. Eric has been recognized for his ability to portray emotion and profound drama while retaining the quality one would find only in the paintings from the Old Masters.
