Isalos Fine Art features “Midsummer Nights: Suzanne Siegel”

“Fireflies and Moonlight IV” by Suzanne Siegel

Isalos Fine Art will feature “Midsummer Nights,” a show of new pastels by Suzanne Siegel that feature Stonington and Deer Isle at night, with an Opening Reception 4 to 7 p.m. Friday July 4 in conjunction with Stonington Galleries First Friday Open Gallery Night. Siegel, who studied art at Lyme Academy of Fine Arts and Vermont College, visits Stonington regularly to paint, drawn to the town’s classic homes and the natural world of the archipelago beyond. As she began painting more night scenes, she liked the way the reduced light honed the scenes to strong shapes with luminous colors, sometimes with one tiny lighted window suggesting a human presence, or the moon lighting a rippling path between islands. The show runs through July 20. For more information visit
