Artist Dan Gravereaux's work will be on display at Darien Rowayton Bank, 1001 Post Road, Darien, through October.

Originally from France, Gravereaux and his family escaped under the German invasion, ultimately ending up in New Canaan. He attended the one-room Carter Street School, where his interest in art began by studying with noted artist Judy Bell.

He graduated from the University of Connecticut and was employed by CBS Laboratories in Stamford as a research engineer.

As a Christmas present in 1995, his wife, Kathy, enrolled him in a watercolor class at the Silvermine School of Art, where he continues to study. He trained with George Sutherland for many years, learning numerous styles and painting methods.
