Local Artist Clinton Deckert Exhibits Surreal Talents

See Clinton Deckert’s 25-Year Retrospective at the Paris in Plantsville Gallery through the end of the month.

Southington native Clinton Deckert’s award-winning art can be seen in galleries across the country. And now he is showing a 25-year retrospective of his work right here at home at the Paris in Plantsville Gallery, 15 West Main Street, through November 1.

Deckert says his paintings, largely abstract and surreal, are influenced by artists such as Dali, Ernst, Magritte, Matta, Bosch and Yves Tanguy. They have won many awards and are popular throughout Connecticut and beyond. In fact, he set the record for most successful solo exhibit at the White Space Gallery in New Haven.

The 53-year-old artist is a graduate of Southington High School and a former drummer for the rock band Thrasher that was locally popular in the 70s and 80s.
