WESTPORT — Peace, the universal, elusive quest of mankind, has been a major inspiration for artist Marlene Siff in recent years.

The exhibition includes five large multidimensional paintings. Although best known for her vivid explosions of color for which she is recognized, the five works feature Siff’s black and subtle, meditative white constructions
