Artist Renelio Marin’s “Street Dialogue: New York/Havana” Exhibit at New Canaan Library: Noon to 5 p.m. This is the final day of the exhibition of Cuban-American artist Renelio Marin. The show, entitled "Street Dialogue: New York/Havana)." It features drawings and paintings in gouache and pencil on paper, alive with the culture and street life of these two vibrant and very different, cities. Marin’s art education was traditional, with an emphasis on painting and drawing on canvas and paper. His drawings and paintings evoke the many moods of New York and Havana’s streets – from quiet and sultry to pulsating with action. In his work, Marin often uses photography as a point of departure, working from an image projected on paper or canvas; other times he draws directly from an image or a live model. All of the pieces included in the exhibit were created from photographs taken by Martin on the streets of New York and Havana. New Canaan Library, 151 Main St.
