Gallery on the Green presents “Word Art Show” and solo shows by Peggy Steinway and John Rohlfing in Canton, CT Friday, March 15th through Sunday, April 14th   The “Word Art Show” is a biennial gallery tradition since 2003.  Writers and artists collaborate with each other in order to explore the synergy between the arts.  Visual artists create a work of art that is inspired by prose or poetry, while writers create new work in response to visual art.  Written text appears next to the art or is directly incorporated as words or letters into the prints, paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture.   As part of the show, there is an evening of readings and performances on March 23 from 7:00 – 9:00. In her solo show “Tableaux,” Peggy Steinway includes paintings of half-filled water glasses in still life and landscape settings, with the view through the glass transformed and rearranged.  She wants us to contemplate whether the glass, like life, is more full than empty. Also on display are her fanciful cardboard sculpture of acrobats, jugglers and other figures.  Here she uses myth to draw parallels to current events.  Steinway is a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Regional fellowship and the Connecticut Commission of the Arts Individual Artist Grant.  Her work was chosen for a nationally distributed ABSOLUT vodka ad.  A graduate of the N.Y. State College of Ceramics and Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, Steinway teachers art at The Gilbert School in Winsted. John Rohlfing’s solo show, “Recent Ceramics,” includes his drawings and clay vessels.  These ceramics have utilitarian aspects as teapots and vases yet demonstrate masterful craft technique and have abstract painted surfaces that echo constructivist and cubist artistic movements.  The work of this internationally acclaimed artist is in many public and private collections including the Renwick Gallery at Smithsonian American Art Museum.  His large-scale  public sculpture is at the Isador Wexler School in New Haven.  Rohlfing twice received fellowships from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and is Professor of Art at Post University in Waterbury. The opening reception for the “Word Art Show” and the solo exhibitions is Saturday, March 16th from 6:00-9:00 pm.  The Gallery reception with refreshments is free and the public is warmly invited.   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 9 month-long exhibitions each year.  The gallery is located near the intersection of Dowd Avenue and Route 44 at 5 Canton Green Road in Canton.  Hours are Friday – Sunday, 1-5 pm.  The main floor gallery is handicapped accessible.    www.galleryonthegreen.org / cantonartists@att.net / 860-693-4102
