For longtime Rowayton resident, Ilana Appleby, dance has been a passion ever since she had her first tap classes as a preschooler. Appleby’s most recent work was inspired and drawn during ballet performances, rehearsals, and in-studio visits of the American Ballet Theatre and the Connecticut Ballet, mostly in the dark, with her attention focused on the dancers, not on the sketchpad.
Influenced by the muses of Degas, Hirschfeld, and Haring, Appleby’s ballet-inspired work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and was awarded 1st Prize in Drawing.
Appleby is an artist member of MoMA, the Whitney Museum, the Graphic Arts Guild, the Rowayton Arts Center, and the Stamford Art Association, and a member of the Art Students League.
Dancer Art jewelry is also for sale at Silver Ribbon in Westport (1240 Post Road East) And Works on Paper is for sale at the Geary Gallery in Darien (576 Post Road).
