TORRINGTON — The Charlotte Hungerford Hospital Auxiliary is exhibiting the artwork of Linda Sardilli through early March in the hospital’s main lobby hallway, 540 Litchfield St.
The public is welcome to view the artwork from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of the artwork will support the auxiliary and the hospital.
Ms. Sardilli was born in Vermont and she has developed a passion for drawing and painting landscapes, vintage barns and quiet corners.
According to Ms. Sardilli, on her first day of college, she was emotionally moved when she viewed Andrew Wyeth’s famous painting, “Christina’s World” in her art history book.
Mr. Wyeth’s works have had a influence on Ms. Sardilli’s photographic style.
She felt a connection with Mr. Wyeth’s creative mind, desire to tell a story and his need to communicate that even the simplest scenes give birth to immeasurable worth.
According to Ms. Sardilli, she tries to create a Cinderella-like story in each of her photographs.
Through her art, she enjoys telling stories that create interest and form an intimate bond with the viewer.
“Art is my passion. Photography is my vehicle,” she said.
Ms. Sardilli has won several scholastic art awards and her work has been exhibited at Trinity College and the University of Hartford.
