Music and Arts Happening
Is A Donation Sponsored Event.

Featured Artist: Corey Pane

Corey Pane is an artist from Connecticut. He has always been interested in art and the creative side of life since he was a child. He was always drawing as a kid, and as he grew up, he stopped for a while to try to get into other things like music, playing guitar or drums. Always keeping drawing and visual arts on the back burner, he abruptly moved back to drawing again. “Like any artist, it is just something inside me that I need to get out, no matter what kind of creative form that involves, whether it be visual art, music, film, poetry, etc.” he explains. He thinks it is good for any artist to switch there creative drive towards a different art form every once in a while and broaden your artistic range. He likes to spread himself out and not get trapped in one spot, being labeled as a certain type of artist. Corey views his work as being more abstract and expressive in its technique, even though it may not always look that way. His main focus is not to achieve photo-realism, but to show expression and to tell a story that evokes a certain emotion or feeling. Corey attacks his paintings with a very quick approach. Most of his paintings come together spontaneously and automatically. Corey has a certain direction or idea he sets out to capture, but likes to let his paintings work and create themselves at the same time, while he helps to guide them in certain directions. Letting it come together how ever it may be meant to happen.
