Artist Caryn Azoff will give a talk at her exhibit at BEKI Saturday March 3

Sponsored by: Congregation Beth El – Keser Israel (BEKI)

Caryn Azoff, whose art is on display at Beth El – Keser Israel [BEKI] in New Haven from January 21 until April 8, will give an artist’s talk there on Saturday, March 3.

The chair of the Arts Department, Gallery Director, and Upper School Visual Arts Teacher at Hamden Hall Country Day School, Azoff creates brightly colored geometric abstract work.

Using colored pencil, watercolor, gouache, and flashe/acylic paint, Azoff has developed an art form in which process is inherent in the final images. She has a practice of daily expression in sketches, and the resulting abstract colors and shapes evolve with each new image.

The works on paper begin with Azoff’s hand drawn grid structure.  From here, the shapes and colors intui-tively inform the work. The simple geometric forms encompass each page, working in an 6 x 6” or an 8 x 8” structure. Inspiration of color and form come from illuminated text and Bauhaus influence.

Azoff was born in Los Angeles, California, but was raised in Connecticut. She received her BA and MS degrees at Central Connecticut State University.

Her work is available for purchase at Susan Eley Fine Art in New York City. Exhibited in locations throughout the United States, her art can also be viewed at as well as in her studio at West River Studios in Westville Village and, recently, as a mural on Fountain Street in the Village.

Her talk will accompany the exhibit on March 3 at 1:00 pm. Sabbath rules will be observed.
