59th Anniversary Exhibition

59th Anniversary Exhibition

The Gallery on the Green in Canton presents the 59th Anniversary Exhibition and a solo exhibit by Marlene Mayes.

On view in the main gallery are prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, fiber and ceramics from gallery member and guest artists.

 

In “Nature Scape” Marlene Mayes attempts to capture the quiet moments in nature where one can feel the moisture of the woods in morning or the twilight chill of an oncoming snow. Her inspiration derives from her experience of seasonal challenges from spring preparation to final harvest in her garden, backyard woodlands or the 4H Farm. Nature has been her teacher.  Mayes finds inspiration with the planting of spring bulbs, from an old stump along the road or a trail or pasture.  Trees, foliage, and weather become part of her watercolors or acrylics.

 

Come view the creativity and talent of diverse local artists in an intimate exhibition space. The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm and the main gallery is handicap accessible.

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 / cantonartistsguild@gmail.com /  860-693-4102.

Word Art Show at Gallery on the Green

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

Workshops: Writing for Change

The Harriet Beecher Stowe Center will host “Writing for Change,” two summer workshops for high school and college students and adults. Participants can attend one or both sessions to be held July 11 and July 28 from 9 AM to 3 PM at the Stowe Center. Pre-registration is required at bit.ly/WFChange. The registration fee is $25 for Stowe Center members and Hartford residents and $40 for all others and includes lunch, coffee, tea and snacks. For questions, accessibility or dietary needs: info@stowecenter.org or 860.522.9258 x308.

Participants will have the rare opportunity to write in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1871 home, a National Historic Landmark. They will walk in the footsteps of the bestselling author whose words changed the world with her groundbreaking anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. The workshop themes are Exploring the Relationship Between Identity and Place (July 11) and Identifying and Connecting with Audiences (July 28).

Through expert-led prompts, activities, and discussion, participants will learn how to use writing to bear witness, build empathy, and advocate for positive change. Participants are invited to bring something they have been working on or begin a new piece at the workshop. The workshop will provide writers of all ages and levels a supportive and inspirational environment to craft and share writing for social justice.

Workshop instructor Dr. Catherine Burton is Program Coordinator at the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center. Before joining the Center, Burton taught college literature, writing, and publishing for 10 years, most recently at Quinnipiac and Lehigh Universities. She is passionate about the public humanities and believes in the power of words to change the world. Burton holds a Ph.D. in English from Lehigh University and an M.A. and B.A. in English from the University of Connecticut.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) was the author of more than 30 books including her best-selling anti-slavery novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”. The book was a runaway best seller, selling 10,000 copies in the United States in its first week; 300,000 in the first year; and in Great Britain, 1.5 million copies in one year. It set off an international outcry for abolishing slavery and was a building block to the Civil War. An example of how one person can make a difference, Stowe’s story continues to inspire people around the world to work for social justice and positive change.
