A daughter's look at Forstmann, Thea-bound

Six @ 3 p.m., by Eric Forstmann
  • "Six @ 3 p.m.," by Eric Forstmann

Work by realist painter Eric Forstmann of Connecticutt, who created a painting just for the Thea Foundation, will be shown at Thea starting Aug. 5. To get a preview of the artist through the eyes of his daughter, watch her Vimeo video here.

Among Forstmann's body of work is a series of paintings of shirts hung on a wall. In honor of Thea Leopoulos, the late daughter of Paul and Linda Leopoulos for whom the foundation is named, he included in one of his paintings a pink shirt with a tiny Thea Foundation logo on the collar. The first print of the work, "Six @ 3 p.m.," went to President Clinton at the Foundation's fundraiser in Washington, D.C., in April.

Prints will be available at Thea during the Forstmann show, which will run through Aug. 30; all proceeds will go to the foundation, which works to promote the arts as a path to better learning in schools. The exhibition will include several works by Forstmann.
