Members’ Themed Exhibit: “Love, Love, Love” plus Solo Show by Edith Skiba LaMonica
February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Knowing all you need is love, come view a celebration in art that will make you want to break out in song! The Canton Artists’ Guild is one of Connecticut’s oldest guilds and home to over 100 artists from throughout the Greater Farmington Valley. Inspired by the show’s theme of “Love, Love, Love,” members have created many splendid things: sculpture, fiber, prints, drawings, paintings, mixed media and photographs.
LaMonica’s solo show “Reflections and Musings” presents a selection of recent oil paintings inspired by her curiosity about nature and love of color. Combining real with abstraction, she recreates the atmosphere of woodland and ponds in her surroundings. She has a BA in Painting and Masters in Art History from SUNY Stony Brook and has taught college courses on painting and on art history. From 2003-2009 her work was carried by the ARTWORKS Gallery of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Solo exhibitions in Connecticut include Five Points Gallery in Torrington, Tunxis Community College and the Underground Gallery in Collinsville. Her paintings are in many public collections including the UCONN Health Center.
The Gallery on the Green will be following the State of Connecticut’s COVID-19 reopening guidelines. All visitors inside the gallery are required to wear a mask and observe social distancing protocol. Given the circumstances, the above protocol may change in accordance with CT State guidelines. There will be no opening or closing reception.
