The Connecticut Creative Arts will host Denise Sulsalka at their Tuesday, Dec. 9 meeting in the Trumbull Library Community Room. She will produce a still-life painting in acrylics. The meeting begins with a luncheon at 12:30 p.m., followed by the program starting at 1:30.

Susalka, a resident of Redding and Palmas del Mar, earned an MBA in International Finance and worked for 18 years in banking and finance before beginning her art career. She has been channeling her creativity energy into painting since 2000.

Using memories of living in France, Italy, Japan and Puerto Rico and traveling extensively in Asia, Europe, South America and the Caribbean, she uses color, texture, and play of light to convey a sense of place in her landscapes, evocative abstract and still-life paintings in oils and acrylics.

Her work has been exhibited in LakeShore Gallery in Bolton Landing, NY; Lady Audrey’s Gallery in West Cornwall, CT; Rockwell Gallery in Westport, CT and has a permanent exhibition of her work at Maji-Lina Gallery in Rio Mar, Puerto Rico.

She is a founding member of Cannondale Studios and Gallery in Wilton, and exhibits her work throughout Connecticut and Puerto Rico. Recently she was the featured artist of The CT Art Trail. Susalka’s studio at The Nest Arts Factory, 1720 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport, was recently on the Bridgeport Art Gallery where she was a featured artist.

The meeting is open to the public with a donation of $4. For the luncheon, call Sarah Turechek at 203-268-2995 for information.
