The work of artist Penelope “Penny” Chittenden will be on display at Water’s Edge Gallery

Early Childhood Scribbling Leads to a Career in Painting for One Clinton Artist

The work of artist Penelope "Penny" Chittenden will be on display at Waters Edge Gallery Dec 1, 2016 through Jan. 31, 2017. Penny began her art career very early, scribbling on the wallpaper.  Soon she was enrolled in classes at the Wadsworth Atheneum where she fell in love with Fine Art and the fun of creating.  She won the Art Award at the Chaffee School and went on to major in Art History at Goucher College.  After graduation she worked in the Education Department at the Wadsworth Atheneum.

Penny has studied with Lou Bonamarte, BettyLou Schlemm, Judi Betts, Charles Movalli and other internationally known painters.  Her favorite subject is light.  She uses watercolors to express the light in her land and seascapes, still lifes and florals.  "Celebrate the world; enjoy its nuances", Penny often muses, when asked about her inspiration as an artist.

Penny has exhibited throughout Connecticut and led art groups to Holland, Belgium, France, Greece and Spain.  Penny feels honored to know and paint with many great artists on the CT shoreline.

The Waters Edge Gallery is accessible off the resort’s Main Lobby and is open daily to the public. The exhibit continues through January 31, 2017.
