Canton Gallery on the Green presents “Fall Arts Harvest” and 2 solo shows
September 17 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Gallery on the Green presents a member show entitled, “Fall Art Harvest.” Created with their brushes, chisels, cameras, scissors and other artistic tools and media, members of the Canton Artists’ Guild bring to market autumn’s bounty. Some pieces reflect the season’s distinctive color, light and shape. Others are more diverse but all show the fruits of imagination, experimentation and continual aesthetic nurturing.
Also on display are two solo shows. “Escape in Watercolor” by Arleen Pomaski draws heavily upon her artistic coping with restrictions imposed Covid. This work, however, is the culmination of training over many years under the tutelage of established watercolor and mixed media artists plus coursework at the College of Marin and Sonoma State University. She perfected her skills painting on her trips to Corsica, Italy and Greece. Pomaski relishes natural settings and the way in which built structures within them enliven shadows, textures, shapes and colors. She shows how beautifully this can be captured with the flow and transparency of watercolor.
The second solo show is “Out of the Blue 2” by Margaret Wilson. The starting point was a small piece she created for the recent Gallery on the Green member show “Out of the Blue.” In mostly small paintings (6” x 5”) charged with intimacy and tension, Wilson takes off from the originating inspiration to create an image with a sudden, surprising, and unanticipated element. Her appreciation of the emotional nature and function of art are strongly evident and stem from her education as an art therapist at Pratt Institute and a studio art degree from Skidmore. She has exhibited widely in Connecticut over the past 20 years, in both solo shows and group exhibitions.
The Canton Artists’ Guild at the Gallery on the Green, the longest continuously-running artist guild in the state, has 3 separate galleries and hosts month-long exhibitions nine times a year.
