Charles Douthat will discuss his artwork with Miggs Burroughs during a reception for his exhibit.

Charles is a poet, retired litigator, and visual artist. A graduate of Stanford University and the University of California, Charles is a self-taught painter who works within the traditions of abstract expressionism and lyrical abstraction. He began painting 15 years ago toward the end of a long career as a trial lawyer in New Haven. In 2019, he received an MFA in Fine Arts from Warren Wilson College. His paintings, featured individually in many curated and juried shows, were most recently the subject of the one-person exhibition, Everyone Has Feelings, at Metro Art Studios in Bridgeport, and a two-person exhibition, Moving Lines, at the Kershner Gallery in Fairfield.
Charles also is an award-winning, widely published poet. His poems have appeared in many magazines and journals, including Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac. His book Blue for Oceans, was awarded the 2011 PEN New England Award as the best book of poetry published that year by a New England author.
A member of the Artists Collective of Westport, Charles lives in Weston with his wife, artist Julie Leff. Learn more about his paintings and poetry at charlesdouthat.com.
