East Coast Premiere of Hollywood Icon’s Paintings Continues to Captivate Audiences, Showcasing Sharon Stone’s Creative Journey Beyond the Silver Screen
The C. Parker Gallery is delighted to announce the extension of the East Coast premiere of Sharon Stone’s paintings, titled “Sharon Stone: Welcome To My Garden,” until January 15. This exhibition marks the first time Stone’s artworks are displayed outside of Los Angeles and has garnered acclaim from collectors and art world luminaries, including Jerry Saltz, the Senior Art Critic for New York Magazine and Pulitzer Prize winner for Criticism.
The gallery showcases 19 paintings by Stone, providing a unique glimpse into the actress’s creative journey. “I created these works to understand the essence of pure creativity that comes from heartfelt truth, to let go of the noise, the judgments, and the pollution of our societal pulls,” says Sharon Stone.
Stone, an internationally recognized global cultural leader, has received numerous accolades, including the Women Making History Award from the National Women’s History Museum, the Einstein Spirit of Achievement Award, the Nobel Peace Summit Award Laureate, the Golden Globe Award, a Prime-time Emmy Award, an Academy Award Nomination, and recognition as a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters in France. Her humanitarian efforts have earned her the 2023 Courage Award, the Harvard Humanitarian Award, and the Human Rights Campaign Humanitarian Award.
The exhibition coincides with Stone being honored as the Global Citizen of the Year at the 2023 United Nations UNCA Awards on December 15. This recognition further highlights her significant contributions to the arts and global humanitarian efforts.
Tiffany Benincasa, the owner and curator of the C. Parker Gallery, expresses excitement about presenting the East Coast debut of Sharon Stone’s powerful art. “This new exhibition offers a never-before-seen panorama into Sharon Stone’s creative prowess. The artist invites viewers on a journey through the vibrant landscapes of her imagination, reflecting her inner world. A testament to Stone’s profound talents,” adds Benincasa.
The gallery, located at 409 Greenwich Avenue, just a 45-minute train ride from New York City, provides a perfect setting for the exhibition. Stone’s artworks are a testament to her keen powers of observation, capturing human behavior and turning human frailties into sources of strength. Her connection to nature is palpable, with color playing a central role in her artistic expression.
“Color becomes a wavelength for me,” says Stone. “Being a colorist moves the directions of my paintings. Color speaks to me.”
Stone’s artistic journey began in her early years, inspired by her Aunt Vonne, who had a Master’s degree in painting. Her commitment to painting deepened during the pandemic, and she now dedicates four to 17 hours per day to her craft.
The C. Parker Gallery, celebrating its tenth year in Greenwich, Connecticut, is a full-service art gallery and consultancy representing an extensive collection of works by traditional and contemporary artists. Recognized with the Best of Greenwich Award and Best of the Gold Coast Award, the gallery’s inventory features over 1,800 works from more than 70 artists, including original paintings, prints, sculpture, and collectibles.
For those planning to visit the New York area, the extended exhibition provides a rare opportunity to witness the artistic brilliance of Sharon Stone. Don’t miss the chance to immerse yourself in the vibrant world of “Sharon Stone: Welcome To My Garden” at the C. Parker Gallery until January 15.
