BRIDGEPORT, CT - On Wednesday, December 4th join artist Joseph Saccio for an exclusive walk through of his current solo exhibition: “In a Dark Wood, Wandering,” at the Housatonic Museum of Art. During this free event, which begins at 11am, Saccio will share his artistic process and his interests in mythology, nature and the struggle of bereavement.

Over the course of thirty years, this artist has created large-scale sculptures that draw on classical mythology and religious narrative to create primal, emotional and fantastical works of art that explore loss, grief, and resilience.

Using wood, natural materials and found objects, the ambitious career survey exhibition features to reflect this New Haven-based artist’s feelings about loss and rebirth. While the artwork is frequently dark and pensive, the mood is often lightened by humor through the placement of brightly colored materials.

“Saccio’s work reminds us of the natural cycle of life tempered with humor and surprise; utilizing the power of myth and religious narrative he brings us through the dark and into the light,” said Robbin Zella, Director of the Housatonic Museum of Art. “Time spent in the galleries with him will allow you to contemplate your own experiences with sorrow and resilience.”
