Tony Falcone is a celebrated artist and a local resident. Chances are, if you've ever traveled up I-95, you're familiar with his work. The gigantic mural of horses and jockeys vying for position on the side of the Sportshaven building in New Haven has become an iconic image, one that sprung from Falcone's imagination.
In tomorrow's Cheshire Herald, you'll read about Falcone's work on a painting commemorating the work of the Coast Guard on 9/11 in Lower Manhattan, and how that piece will now be permanently hung at the Coast Guard Headquarters in Washington, D.C. However, if you want to do more than read about his work, Falcone's art will be displayed at the Goldsmith's Art and Framing Gallery in October, and there will be an opening on Friday at the Gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. The Gallery is located at 534 West Main Street.
