Bloomfield resident John Eastman received his bachelor's degree in communications/fine arts from Central Connecticut State University in 1988. Eastman, a 2000 recipient of a Greater Hartford Art Council Fellowship, is currently employed as an art preparator at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford. His work pictured on this week's iTowns cover will be featured in a two-artist exhibition at the Chase/Freedman Gallery at the Mandell Jewish Community Center in West Hartford. The show, "Structure/Dimension," opens June 26 and runs through Aug. 8 and includes works of Eastman and Felix Bronner. "Initially, my box constructions were photography based, and I continue to utilize that medium," Eastman says. "This particular group of works, however, are based on my love of abstraction, and draw inspiration from the Modernist and Constructivist movements in painting and sculpture."
