Margaret Grimes has been painting landscapes for over 40 years now, and she's pretty darn good at it. Her large-scale works that portray majestic wooded American scenes will be on display at WCSU's Higgins Hall to celebrate her retirement from her full-time faculty position at the university. Tangled thickets of undergrowth and clustered limbs are speckled with brilliant colors that give an otherworldly quality to the foliage she paints.
Higgins Hall Gallery, WCSU, 181 White St., Danbury. Thu., Feb. 14 through Thu., March 14. Free. (203) 837-8403, wcsu.edu.
