The C. Parker Gallery in Greenwich, Connecticut, presents the East Coast premiere of Sharon Stone’s paintings with the new exhibition, “Sharon Stone: Welcome To My Garden” on view from October 12 through December 3. “We are honored to present the highly anticipated East Coast debut of Sharon Stone’s powerful art for our tenth anniversary season ” says Tiffany Benincasa, owner and curator of C. Parker Gallery. “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 is located at 409 Greenwich Avenue just a 40 minute train ride from New York City.
The gallery show features 19 paintings by Stone marking the first time her artworks have been exhibited outside of Los Angeles. Her art has garnered praise from collectors and art world luminaries, including Jerry Saltz, Senior Art Critic for New York Magazine and Pulitzer Prize winner. Stone’s celebrated slide shows of her paintings are making waves on Instagram. “I created these works to explore the essence of pure creativity rooted in heartfelt truth to shed the noise, judgments and societal influences” says Sharon Stone. Her immense talents and keen powers of observation have translated beautifully onto canvas. Stone’s ability to observe and interpret human behavior as well as her capacity to transform human frailties into sources of strength shine through in a combative, conquering and victorious manner. Her deep connection to nature is consistently evident. “Color becomes a wavelength for me” says Stone. “Being a colorist guides the direction of my paintings. Color communicates with me.
Stone has been painting her entire life. In her early years her Aunt Vonne, who held a Master’s degree in painting, created murals across the walls of the home where Stone lived as a child. Stone studied painting in college and her art making became her primary focus during the pandemic, which led her into a new creative realm. This period of global crisis served as a catalyst for Stone to explore new artistic avenues, allowing her to transfer her lifelong creative instincts onto the canvas. Since then she paints every day dedicating four to seventeen hours per day to her craft.
Stone is internationally recognized as a global cultural leader and she has received numerous honors, 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, a Golden Globe Award, a Primetime Emmy Award, an Academy Award nomination and she was named a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters in France. She also received the 2023 Courage Award, the Harvard Humanitarian Award and the Human Rights Campaign Humanitarian Award, among many other accolades.
