"Coverall Man, " an oil painting by noted Connecticut artist Dian Chandler, was awarded the Ellie Bender 2nd Place Award in Gallery 53's 97th Annual Fall Show. Chandler is known for creating masterful, compelling portraits. Exhibit Judge Karen Israel notes, "The man's attitude, the upward tilt of his chin, the somewhat off center gaze drew me to this man. I appreciated the way the artist handled the pattern on the jacket and how it led in a subtle circle so I could find my way back to the man's face. Lastly, the blue toned background played well against the man's red bandana. The artist is a master at knowing what to detail and what to leave to the viewer's imagination."
