Summer Show Brings Out the Art in Wilton

It’s no doubt there are many talented people in Wilton, and the work of about 90 of them is on display at Wilton Library’s Summer Show, which opened July 14 and will run through Aug. 23. The show is a celebration of the work of artists from Wilton.

One of the pieces includes a very large charcoal rendering of a vintage Volkswagen Beetle. The Beetle was drawn by Erik Kaeyer, an architect with an office in Mount Kisco, N.Y. The sizeable drawing is the result of his picking up drawing again just six months ago.

“Architecture takes a very long time,” he said. It can be three to five years before a plan comes to fruition, if at all. With art, however, “I can sit down, clear my head, and focus on the design at hand in hours or days and have a product and feel a sense of accomplishment,” he said.

Kaeyer is considering doing a series on iconic vehicles like a vintage Mustang or Harley.
