Watercolors by Harry Danos on Exhibit at East Village Place

EAST LONGMEADOW — East Village Place, at 50 Benton Dr., East Longmeadow, will host a wine-and-cheese reception on Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 3 to 5 p.m. to mark the opening of a new watercolor exhibit by local artist Harry Danos. The exhibit will remain up through Sunday, Oct. 22.

An award-winning architect with degrees from Syracuse and Rice Universities, Danos is a Springfield native and graduate of Technical High School. A WWII veteran, he is considered one of the oldest living survivors of the battle of Iwo Jima. Retired from architecture, Danos has studied and associated with other well-known watercolor artists in continuing his creative endeavors. He has taught at both the Mystic (Conn.) Art Assoc. and the Naples Von Leigid Art League.

Danos describes his passion for painting as “a love affair with watercolor.” He considers the art form another side of the same design coin as architecture and he believes that each discipline enhances the other and fosters a more creative expression to what is viewed or felt. “I liken painting to skiing, sailing, dancing, and music, a harmonious and demanding relationship of the particular, analytical, and emotional, all at the same time,” he said.
The artist’s reception is free, and the public is welcome. To attend, call (413) 525-8150.
