NAC Artists' Cooperative

Gigi Horr Liverant

Gigi Horr Liverant has painted in oils and pastels for over thirty years in a continuing exploration of the descriptive effects of both natural and artificial light. Recent work has expanded both palette and subject matter to celebrate the chroma of light and form through a series of road trip images. In addition to the pastels for which she is known, Liverant has developed her unique imagery in large-scale oil paintings.

Liverant has been the recipient of numerous awards and honors including First Prize Connecticut Women Artists, Best in Show Connecticut Pastel Society, and the Diane Bernhardt Gold Medal Award at the PSA Annual Exhibition in 2000. She is a Pastel Society of America Master Pastelist and a Signature Member of the Connecticut Pastel Society. Liverant has also been awarded important national and regional commissions including the Cow Parades in both New York, West Hartford and Boston, the Whale Trail in Southeastern Connecticut and Rhode Island and murals at multiple locations of the Connecticut Savings Bank. She is much sought after teacher and lecturer in the Southeastern Connecticut area.

Liveranti’s paintings are included in the collection of the Lyman Allyn Museum, Connecticut College, Pfizer, Three Rivers Community-Technical College and the New Haven Paint and Clay Club, in addition to private and corporate collections nationally. Liverant exhibits her work at the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven and the NAC Gallery in Norwich as well as numerous group exhibitions throughout the region. She attended Paier College of Art in New Haven, Connecticut. Liverant lives and works in Colchester, Connecticut.

Artist Statement

Incandescence is not only the emission of visible light generated by heat, but it is also a high degree of emotional intensity. Incandescence is at the heart of my paintings. Ordinary objects and daily events possess potential beauty and fascination. The artwork images combine the impact of the visual impression and the sentiment of the moment.

Much like a composer uses musical notes to convey an emotion, color is my vocabulary, and when used in combination with form, communicates a sensation to the viewer or listener.
