True art manners

A solo exhibition of new work by Anne Wu, winner of the 2020 Real Art Ways Award, will be at the gallery until February 6.

The exhibition, titled “A Dream Walking”, includes five sculptures in vibrant hues that reference familiar architectural forms that evoke both a sense of place and no place at all: a balustrade grows from the ground, emerging upwards before an abrupt end. A door opens, or closes, to nowhere in particular. A balcony hovers, the center of its base missing. A ramp descends, edging toward the ground. A window covering hangs on the wall, its beams protruding from its frame.

Wu is a 2021-22 studio artist at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, New York and winner of a Real Art Award, which recognizes emerging artists living in New England, New Jersey or New York.

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 2-9 p.m., Real Art Ways is at 56 Arbor St., Hartford. For more information, including visitor protocol, call 860-232-1006 or visit: realartways.org

The New Britain Museum of American Art presents an exhibition of works by Sol LeWitt at the Delamar Hotel, 1 Memorial Road in West Hartford.

The installation includes a series of prints from the LeWitt Collection and the Museum of New Britain. The exhibition lasts until April 1.

LeWitt’s mature printmaking is explored in four thematic sections that reflect the diverse abstract languages ​​he pursued throughout his career: “Lines, Arcs, Circles, and Grids;” “Bands and Colors;” “Geometric figures with complex shapes;” and “Wavy, Curvy, Loopy Doopy and in every direction.”
