Richard Welling’s illustrations recorded the period of urban renewal in Hartford in the 1960s and 1970s, but beyond his role as visual historian, Welling was a master artist who excelled at the use of line and media to depict space. Cassandra Broadus-Garcia, Associate Professor of Art at Central Connecticut State University (CCSU), will lead an interactive discussion of Welling’s artistic accomplishments that focuses on his paintings, linoleum prints, and mixed-media drawings to highlight Welling’s talents as an illustrator and fine artist. Participants will have a hands-on opportunity to explore techniques used by Welling, including marker wash, and become engaged with many of his works through interactive discussions. On view from October 23 to November 20, Broadus-Garcia has curated a companion exhibit on Welling’s artwork displayed in CCSU’s University Gallery in Maloney Hall, 1615 Stanley Street, New Britain, CT.
