STREET CHIC IS  TOTALLY COOL !  What do Bill Healy, David Holzman and C. Dianne Zweig have in common? They are three area artists who are bringing their offbeat art to Bodytalk Boutique for a sizzling summer show  which features an evening of quirky, edgy, spontaneous original art along with a playful and stylish summer collection of contemporary fashion. This exciting and off the wall  indoor and outdoor event takes place at Bodytalk Boutique, 21 East Main St., Avon 860-678-7855 on 
on June 4th, 2015, 5:30-8:00.

Bodytalk Boutique has just celebrated 30 years of  featuring fashion forward apparel and is pleased to showcase three unique artists who work very differently but yet share a common passion for offbeat style, bold color and spontaniety. C. Dianne Zweig, who  organized this Street Chic art show, is an Avon artist specializing in Abstract Mixed Media inspired by Mid Century designs. She has a full time studio (9B) at The Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, CT.  Bill Healy, a lover of pop
culture and nostalgia  is widely known for his Metal Men robots created out of vintage advertising tins and old metal appliance parts. His robots can be found in many museum collections. Bill is also a oainter cranking out  bold figurative graffiti style paintings which remind you of a combo of Folk Art and Outsider Art. David Holzman, an art educator at Simbury Public Schools and Central Connecticut State University leaves the real world each day to escape into his home art studio where he creates paintings described as surreal and suggestive of spontaneous expression. His carved wood reliefs and paintings are edgy,quirky and exciting.  

Street art is thought of as art created in public places. True to the objective of involving the community in the art experience, Bodytalk is planning some outdoor art experiences such as a giant mural which visitors will be encouraged to paint, draw and add their marks to. There will also be other artsy surprises, music and refreshments.--
