Stamford artist Susan Frey says she has spent 35 years taking vacations out west. It's taken her the last three years to create her latest gallery, now on display at POP City in Norwalk.
"[The west] just interests me," Frey says. "I like the colors and the cowboys. I like the Native Americans, who are very interesting with all the different tribes."
Frey says her 47-piece collection is an exact opposite of New England life.
"Maybe if I was in Phoenix, AZ this sort of gallery would be typical," she says. "But here it's not. I like to be atypical."
POP City is run by Norwalk 2.0. Jackie Lightfield, Norwalk 2.0's appointed "chief problem solver," says Frey's collection mirrors Norwalk 2.0's vision of revitalizing Wall Street.
"It's perfect for POP City," she says. "It's fun, and we like to have fun and bring art in an informal setting here."
The "Very Wild, Wild West" exhibit will run through Aug. 3. POP City is open Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
