Christian Siriano is many things: Formerly owner of a Summer home in Danbury, current owner of a historic home in Westport. Youngest winner ever, and current host and mentor of Bravo's Project Runway. And adorable. I've been a fan since he won Runway 2007. Siriano wowed Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, and the world, with stunning designs exhibiting superior artistic vision. Siriano launched his own line in 2008, landed on Time Magazine's list of '100 Most Influential People of 2018', and now some of his original art will be featured at an upcoming exhibit at a gallery on Ridgefield's Main Street

"The Artistic Visions of Christian Siriano" featuring original artwork from the Award-Winning American Fashion Designer, will kick off with an opening reception this Thursday, September 28, 2023, at D. Colabella Fine Art Gallery, 446 Main Street, Ridgefield, from 6-9PM.

Some very famous friends showed up for the opening gala celebration of Siriano's The Collective - West on the Post Road in Westport just over a year ago. Laura Linney, Katie Holmes, and Debra Messing were all captured by the photogs enjoying the evening. Who will show up in Ridgefield? Get ready Planet Pizza.

I've been tempted to buy a few of Siriano's original sketches when they show up on, you may also have that urge as you walk by D. Colabella soon.

There have been so many times where I've walked out of my house angry, looked up, and a beautiful sunset takes it all away. Here are the most beautiful skies that I've captured over Connecticut over the past 15 years.
