Seti Gallery Features Eclectic Collection


Paintings – from a bright red cherry to an aging cowboy – keep company with everything from fanciful greeting cards to handmade beaded and stone jewelry at the Seti Gallery in Kent Green Plaza, Kent, Conn. It’s also hard to miss the 11-foot stone sculpture of a Greek mythological creature on the plaza lawn.


The gallery’s owner, Lorine Krizan, is a postal carrier; her partner and gallery director is Arista Baltronis, a surrealist painter. Before working at the gallery, Baltronis spent four decades casting television soaps such as Search for Tomorrow and Guiding Light, as well as commercials.


While some featured artists are well-established, others are less known. The women discovered a painter of outer space images, 20-year-old Alex Crowell at Starbucks in New Milford, Conn.


Krizan's postal customer Joseph Jasolka's sculpted "Minotaur Bound,'' a mythological piece that looks like a standing moose with wrist chains, flanked by two stone columns, has prompted some criticism.


The gallery opened in April.


Opening hours are noon to 6 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays; from noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays; from 1 to 4 p.m. on Mondays; or Tuesdays and Wednesdays by appointment.  The phone number is 860.927.7170.

"Shady Path" is among the six paintings Rosemary had on display at the Seti Gallery.
