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

Also on exhibit are solo shows by Holly Hall and Mark Snyder.  The 3 exhibits are on display from May 24th to June 23rd. In her solo exhibit, “Breaking Free: Magical Moments Caught in Watercolor and Ceramics,” Holly Hall conveys the beauty she sees in outdoor scenes.  Hall describes some of the images: “Sun melts a pattern of crossing twigs in the ice and warms the crest of a hill. In the next it hides behind opalescent clouds. Or two ducks crest through the snow where soft reflections waver on the ice as winter melts to spring. In another the promise of asters and butterflies is found in a bouquet or in the island breeze.” In her career as an art teacher, Hall worked with students from kindergarten through college.  As an undergraduate she focused on ceramics at the University of New Hampshire and concentrated on printmaking for her masters degree at Wesleyan University. Her work has been widely exhibited in venues across Connecticut including Lost Acres Vineyard in Granby and the West Hartford Art League where she received a prize in watercolor.  She had a solo show at the Jerram Wine Tasting Room. Mark Snyder’s solo show, “Old, New, Borrowed, Blue: Inspired by Iceland,” features work in various media including: letterpress printed collages, archival digital type and image prints, mixed media works and gouache paintings on paper.  A frequent visitor to Iceland, Snyder finds inspiration from the island’s landscape, color, light and forms as well as the amazing inhabitants and the stories they share. Snyder’s art work is in the collection of corporations, institutions, and many private individuals in the south and northeastern United States. His work has been published in regional, national and international publications. Snyder has a BFA from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and MFA in Graphic Design from RISD.  Since 1994 he has been a professor at Hartford Art School.  He also runs a firm that creates design and marketing for non-profits in the arts. Clients include Hartford Stage, Hartford Art School/University of Hartford, Wadsworth Atheneum, Columbia Teachers College, The Hartt School and Trinity College.  He has been awarded artist residencies in Two Rivers, Wisconsin; Columbus, Ohio; Corner Brook, Newfoundland; and the Netherlands.

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 on the Green in Canton holds its 52nd Annual Open Juried Exhibition and solo show by Tom Cameron from Friday, October 11th to Sunday, November 9th.  Juror selections were made by Mell Scalzi, a practicing artist and the Registrar at Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme Connecticut.  Scalzi has worked at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC and at the New York Historical Society.  The exhibition features the work of artists from all over Connecticut and beyond.  On display is fine art in a wide variety of styles and media. The juror awards prizes totaling more than $2000.  Prize funders include Union Savings Bank, Collinsville Savings Society, Charles & Doris Currier Memorial Fund, Mitchell Auto Group, Mitchell Manchester Memorial, Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund, Inc., Nancy Cloutier Memorial, Peg Douglas Memorial Fund, A & J Quality Roofing, Jerry’s Artarama, Smith Edwards McCoy Architects, object|resonance, Neu/Haviland, Carrie Simon Memorial, Rita Q. Memorial and others. Tom Cameron’s solo show, “Dip-Trip-Polyptych,” features over 30 digital images that develop pictorial ideas through multi-image combinations.  Though typically a realist photographer concentrating on nature-based water subjects (often via kayak), he also experiments with images in which the tonality or composition can be more important than image details. This exhibit takes the viewer through several subject areas that examine the way multi-image compositions expand or complete an idea. Included are images of Maine’s Monhegan Island, Venice, floral subjects and others. His photography has been influenced by master photographer and printer George DeWolfe, a student of Ansel Adams and Minor White.  Cameron has studied photography at Tunxis Community College and developed his style over the last 15 years.  His presentation methods continue to challenge current conventions with innovative mounting and surface treatments. He has a BS in Mechanical Engineering, PhD in Materials Science and 40 years of product development experience. He is a member of the Canton Artists’ Guild and is coordinator for the LaSalle Market Gallery in Collinsville. He has been featured in numerous solo shows throughout the area and has won awards in four juried exhibitions. An opening reception and awards presentation will be held on Saturday, October 12th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The public is warmly invited to attend this free reception.

The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.   Nancy Greco’s solo show “Reflections” explores what it is that makes one object or thought more memorable or important than another and what makes something seem lasting rather than fleeting. The dream and symbolic imagery in her drawings is an attempt to open a dialogue with viewers, to encourage them to reflect upon their own memories and connections regarding the changeable way we evaluate what we look at or experience both present and past. Greco went to Southern Connecticut State University and Wesleyan University and has an M.F.A. from Ohio State University.  She received a Ford Foundation Grant, an Individual Artist's Grant and a Visiting Artist's Grant for Lithography Workshops for educators and students from the Connecticut Commission on the Arts. Early awards include the First Award in the Pratt Graphics 6th International Miniature Print Exhibition in NYC and a First Place in The Connecticut Women Artists Open Juried Exhibition. In late 2017 she received an Individual Artist's Grant from the Artist's Resource Trust of the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. Last year, Greco was awarded The Maxwell Shepherd Prize at Gallery on the Green. Greco’s solo exhibitions include Martin Sumers Gallery in New York City and the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, Connecticut. In 2018, Trustman Art Gallery at Simmons University was the venue for a solo show “Recurrence” that traced the appearance and transformation of symbolic imagery through nearly five decades of Greco's prints and drawings. 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 reception. The Gallery on the Green, established in 1960, is the longest continuously operating artists’ guild in Connecticut.  It is housed in a schoolhouse (circa 1872).  There are three spacious galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. 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.

In a themed exhibition guild members respond to the challenge of creating art that is “Out of the Blue” in its many shades of meaning:  facing something entirely unforeseen, the release from woes to laughter or beauty, deliberately working with a suitably reduced color palette….or something else that equally tweaks the imagination.  Come delight in the resulting sculpture, fiber, prints, drawings, paintings, mixed media and photographs from a membership that consists of over 100 juried artisans from one of Connecticut's oldest artists’ guilds. Drawing from over three decades of nature scene photography, Janine M. Kearns presents her solo exhibition entitled, “Treat the Earth Gently.”  Kearns states that “the collection includes macro views of nature’s most delicate expressions as well as some deeply personal moments when the air was filled with spirit.”  She first learned black and white film photography and darkroom work at then Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey), before going on to study at Rutgers University.  She completed a communications degree which included courses in photography and graphic design.  While her professional career went in a different direction, photography has ever since remained her passion and private pursuit. In “The Faces of Freedom” Walter Schuppe’s aims “to preserve some personal histories and create awareness of the sacrifices that military personnel make for the civilian population.” The project combines his black and white photographic portraits of male and female war veterans with a brief bio about the individual’s service and life before and after the military.  Schuppe has been forwarding the photos and bios of World War II veterans to The National World War II Museum for them to preserve in their archives and he aspires to accumulate a collection appropriate to offer to schools, colleges, civic organizations, libraries, etc. 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.

Gallery on the Green presents an exhibition of “Members’ New Work” plus Solo Shows by Mark Rich and Judy Cantwell Canton, CT -  Friday, March 19th through Saturday, April 17  Cost:  Free – open to the public Canton Artists’ Guild members exhibit their work in this “Members’ New Work” exhibition.  For many members the current constraints on travel, employment and social interaction have served to intensify their effort and concentration.  See the results in paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography.  The membership consists of 100 plus artists from over 30 area towns forming one of Connecticut's long established fine art guilds. Mark Rich has eighteen new paintings in his show entitled, “Less is Never More.”  In studio space partially supported by Five Points Gallery, Rich had the opportunity to closely observe downtown Torrington. He was struck by the distinctive signage, old buildings and “post manufacturing decay in the air” reminiscent of neighborhoods he had known in New York City in decades past.  He created these paintings in October 2020 through February 2021 as a tribute that “resists the melancholy of Corona and political angst with optimism and humor.”  Sale proceeds from five paintings will be donated for the benefit of the Fish Homeless Shelter and Torrington food bank. Mark Rich has been working with oil paint and wax for over forty years. His style is abstract, improvised and sometimes random. The work is dense and multilayered and pays homage to his New York School and Post New York School abstract expressionist influences. “Smalls” by Judy Cantwell is a second solo show on exhibit.  It includes a collection of small works, some utilizing colorful semi-transparent gel transfers layered one over another to meld into scenes that are both familiar and yet exotic.  In addition, three-dimensional, shadow box works utilize found objects and industrial-based pressed, gilded and painted components.  A past President and Board member of the Canton Artist’s Guild, she first showed her art at the Gallery on the Green in 1967.  Her award winning art has since been shown in dozens of locations in Connecticut and Massachusetts.  She’s an Elected Artist of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts and the Kent Art Association, member of the Housatonic Valley and New Hartford Art Leagues and part of the mixed media artist’s group called MIXUS.   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.

Gallery on the Green presents “Word Art Show” and Solo Shows by Simsbury Open Studios and Gay Schempp Canton, CT - Friday, April 23rd through Saturday, May 22nd Cost: Free – open to the public The “Word Art Show” is a biennial Gallery tradition since 2003. Writers and artists collaborate to explore the synergy between the visual and written 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 when installed at the gallery, or is directly incorporated as words or letters into the prints, paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture. As part of the show (please check for updates on Gallery website), we hope to have a virtual evening of readings and performances. One of the two solo shows is “Simsbury Open Studios – Here in Canton.” This group show is comprised of artists who share the goal to inspire, educate and allow the public to see art and learn about the creative process. It replaces their pre-pandemic open studio event and allows you to see in one place the stunningly diverse talents of a lampworker, a ceramicist, painters and printmakers. Artists include Rita Bond, Lori Racicot-Burrous, Amy Conover, Catherine M. Elliott, Deborah Leonard, Julie Parker Post, Claudia Ludovici, Richard Schlicher, Karyn de Punte’- Sweezy, Ruth Jacobson, Grace Epstein, Linda Madin, Linda Pearson and Renée S. Hughes. (For additional information visit SimsburyArtists.org, or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.) The second solo show, “A Murder of Crows” by Gay Schempp, consists of encaustic paintings and pen and ink sketches. Schempp has been captivated by crows’ intelligence and quirky gestures and has long sought to capture their personalities in work that combines drawing, painting, and composing visual stories. “The encaustic wax medium,” Schempp explains, “allows me to work in layers, trapping fragments of color, memory and message in time. Working with the molten wax on birch panels is engaging a mix of alchemy and jazz. Colors are worked like chords until the metamorphosis of substance and meaning cools to a finished statement.” Her book, 2020 Through a Crow’s Eye, was created during the lockdown period of last spring through last summer. It illustrates her response to what happened daily through this pandemic time through the eyes of a crow persona. It is a visual document of their shared experiences of last year with commentary on what prompted the sketch that day. The Gallery on the Green will be following the State of Connecticut's COVID-19 reopening guidelines.

Elliott, Deborah Leonard, Julie Parker Post, Claudia Ludovici, Richard Schlicher, Karyn de Punte’- Sweezy, Ruth Jacobson, Grace Epstein, Linda Madin, Linda Pearson and Renée S. Hughes. (For additional information visit SimsburyArtists.org, or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.) The second solo show, “A Murder of Crows” by Gay Schempp, consists of encaustic paintings and pen and ink sketches. Schempp has been captivated by crows’ intelligence and quirky gestures and has long sought to capture their personalities in work that combines drawing, painting, and composing visual stories. “The encaustic wax medium,” Schempp explains, “allows me to work in layers, trapping fragments of color, memory and message in time. Working with the molten wax on birch panels is engaging a mix of alchemy and jazz. Colors are worked like chords until the metamorphosis of substance and meaning cools to a finished statement.” Her book, 2020 Through a Crow’s Eye, was created during the lockdown period of last spring through last summer. It illustrates her response to what happened daily through this pandemic time through the eyes of a crow persona. It is a visual document of their shared experiences of last year with commentary on what prompted the sketch that day. 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 reception. The Gallery on the Green, established in 1960, is the longest continuously operating artists’ guild in Connecticut. It is housed in a schoolhouse (circa 1872). There are three spacious galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. The gallery is located near the intersection of Dowd Avenue and Route 44 at 5 Canton Green Road in Canton. Hours are…

Gallery on the Green presents “Word Art Show” and Solo Shows by Simsbury Open Studios and Gay Schempp Canton, CT - Friday, April 23rd through Saturday, May 22nd Cost: Free – open to the public The “Word Art Show” is a biennial Gallery tradition since 2003. Writers and artists collaborate to explore the synergy between the visual and written 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 when installed at the gallery, or is directly incorporated as words or letters into the prints, paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture. As part of the show (please check for updates on Gallery website), we hope to have a virtual evening of readings and performances. One of the two solo shows is “Simsbury Open Studios – Here in Canton.” This group show is comprised of artists who share the goal to inspire, educate and allow the public to see art and learn about the creative process.

One of the two solo shows is “Simsbury Open Studios – Here in Canton.” This group show is comprised of artists who share the goal to inspire, educate and allow the public to see art and learn about the creative process. It replaces their pre-pandemic open studio event and allows you to see in one place the stunningly diverse talents of a lampworker, a ceramicist, painters and printmakers. Artists include Rita Bond, Lori Racicot-Burrous, Amy Conover, Catherine M. Elliott, Deborah Leonard, Julie Parker Post, Claudia Ludovici, Richard Schlicher, Karyn de Punte’- Sweezy, Ruth Jacobson, Grace Epstein, Linda Madin, Linda Pearson and Renée S. Hughes. (For additional information visit SimsburyArtists.org, or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.) The second solo show, “A Murder of Crows” by Gay Schempp, consists of encaustic paintings and pen and ink sketches. Schempp has been captivated by crows’ intelligence and quirky gestures and has long sought to capture their personalities in work that combines drawing, painting, and composing visual stories. “The encaustic wax medium,” Schempp explains, “allows me to work in layers, trapping fragments of color, memory and message in time. Working with the molten wax on birch panels is engaging a mix of alchemy and jazz. Colors are worked like chords until the metamorphosis of substance and meaning cools to a finished statement.” Her book, 2020 Through a Crow’s Eye, was created during the lockdown period of last spring through last summer. It illustrates her response to what happened daily through this pandemic time through the eyes of a crow persona. It is a visual document of their shared experiences of last year with commentary on what prompted the sketch that day. 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 reception. The Gallery on the Green, established in 1960, is the longest continuously operating artists’ guild in Connecticut. It is housed in a schoolhouse (circa 1872). There are three spacious galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. The gallery is located near the intersection of Dowd Avenue and Route 44 at 5 Canton Green Road in Canton. Hours are…

Gallery on the Green presents a Member Exhibition “Great Escapes” plus two other shows Canton, CT -  Friday, May 28th through Saturday, June 26th Cost:  Free – open to the public As our long winter gives way, Canton Artists’ Guild members let their imaginations take off to bright and wondrous places in “Great Escapes.”  Follow along to exotic and familiar destinations through paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography. In an upstairs gallery David Holzman of Avon and Donna Namnoum of Canton are showing “Viral Conspiracy: An Exhibit of Collaborative Sculptural Ceramics made in Quarantine.”  Having met in 1979 in a ceramics studio at Hartford Art School, they have followed each other's work for decades.  Namnoum has always worked three dimensionally in clay and Holzman’s work ranges from sculpture to painting and printmaking.  Their process entailed texting, making drawings and photographing them, more texts, mysterious cartons dropped off on front stoops, long weeks of separate focus. Namnoum’s concentration on the exploration and evolution of pottery vessels and anthropomorphized forms meets Holzman’s stream of consciousness imagery. Holzman studied at Hartford Art School and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  He began to make wood relief carvings 30 years ago, while continuing his involvement with the woodcut novel format. His work was published in Art Spiegelman’s RAW comics anthology as well as Zero Zero from Seattle and he was a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.  Namnoum received degrees from Southern Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford.  Over the 40 years of making art Donna has exhibited throughout New England and nationally and is the recipient of numerous awards including grants from The Connecticut Commission on the Arts and The Greater Hartford Arts Council. The second show upstairs is entitled, “Focus on Art.”  It is an exhibition of work by students and staff of FOCUS Center for Autism in Canton.  The Center is committed to helping children and young adults achieve their full potential, and art plays an important role in promoting their social and emotional skills. 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.

Gallery on the Green presents a Member Exhibition “Great Escapes” plus two other shows Canton, CT -  Friday, May 28th through Saturday, June 26th Cost:  Free – open to the public As our long winter gives way, Canton Artists’ Guild members let their imaginations take off to bright and wondrous places in “Great Escapes.”  Follow along to exotic and familiar destinations through paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography. In an upstairs gallery David Holzman of Avon and Donna Namnoum of Canton are showing “Viral Conspiracy: An Exhibit of Collaborative Sculptural Ceramics made in Quarantine.”  Having met in 1979 in a ceramics studio at Hartford Art School, they have followed each other's work for decades.  Namnoum has always worked three dimensionally in clay and Holzman’s work ranges from sculpture to painting and printmaking.  Their process entailed texting, making drawings and photographing them, more texts, mysterious cartons dropped off on front stoops, long weeks of separate focus. Namnoum’s concentration on the exploration and evolution of pottery vessels and anthropomorphized forms meets Holzman’s stream of consciousness imagery. Holzman studied at Hartford Art School and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  He began to make wood relief carvings 30 years ago, while continuing his involvement with the woodcut novel format. His work was published in Art Spiegelman’s RAW comics anthology as well as Zero Zero from Seattle and he was a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.  Namnoum received degrees from Southern Connecticut State University and the University of Hartford.  Over the 40 years of making art Donna has exhibited throughout New England and nationally and is the recipient of numerous awards including grants from The Connecticut Commission on the Arts and The Greater Hartford Arts Council.

Gallery on the Green presents the 61st Anniversary Exhibition and one other show Canton, CT -  Friday, July 9th through Saturday, August 7th Cost:  Free – open to the public The Canton Artists’ Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artists’ guild in Connecticut.  The membership, which today draws on artists from 30 surrounding towns, is presenting work in celebration of this 61st Anniversary.  Paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography are displayed in two large galleries of the circa 1872 former school house that is now Gallery on the Green. In a third gallery is “Let’s Dance! A Dancer’s Imaginings,” a solo show by Jill Pasanen that is clearly rooted in her past career in her native England as a dancer, choreographer and dance educator.  Her images resonate with the body positioning, movement and sensation of dance:  “Sometimes, I focus on the complex linear relationships of choreography and sometimes on the translation of physical energy into visual form. I am loving this journey and I hope that this work captures it well.”   Passanen started doing watercolor painting shortly after migrating to the US in 1992.  Over several decades her painting style evolved into the prize-winning mixed media and collage of this exhibit.  She won prizes at the West Hartford Art League, the Underground Gallery, the New Hartford Art League and Gallery on the Green.  Her solo exhibits have been throughout Central Connecticut including Hartt Dance and Opera Center, the Charter Oak Cultural Center, Magna Physical Therapy and TheaterWorks. The Gallery on the Green continues to follow the State of Connecticut COVID-19 guidelines. For this show, we suggest that visitors continue to wear a mask and show consideration on social distancing.  Protocols are subject to change in accordance with state guidelines.

Gallery on the Green presents the 61st Anniversary Exhibition and one other show Canton, CT -  Friday, July 9th through Saturday, August 7th Cost:  Free – open to the public The Canton Artists’ Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artists’ guild in Connecticut.  The membership, which today draws on artists from 30 surrounding towns, is presenting work in celebration of this 61st Anniversary.  Paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography are displayed in two large galleries of the circa 1872 former school house that is now Gallery on the Green. In a third gallery is “Let’s Dance! A Dancer’s Imaginings,” a solo show by Jill Pasanen that is clearly rooted in her past career in her native England as a dancer, choreographer and dance educator.  Her images resonate with the body positioning, movement and sensation of dance:  “Sometimes, I focus on the complex linear relationships of choreography and sometimes on the translation of physical energy into visual form. I am loving this journey and I hope that this work captures it well.”   Passanen started doing watercolor painting shortly after migrating to the US in 1992.  Over several decades her painting style evolved into the prize-winning mixed media and collage of this exhibit.  She won prizes at the West Hartford Art League, the Underground Gallery, the New Hartford Art League and Gallery on the Green.  Her solo exhibits have been throughout Central Connecticut including Hartt Dance and Opera Center, the Charter Oak Cultural Center, Magna Physical Therapy and TheaterWorks.

  Gallery on the Green presents its 53rd Annual Open Juried Exhibition.  This highly anticipated competition draws artists from all over Connecticut and beyond as they compete for $1500 in prizes.  On display is fine art in a wide variety of styles, media and subject matter including painting, prints, drawing, photography, ceramics and sculpture.  This year’s juror is Dr. Ricardo Reyes, currently the Gallery Director and Curator of Collections at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.  He previously served as the Edith Dale Monson Gallery Curator and Director at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford. Dr. Reyes also has a distinguished career as an artist and cultural theorist, with recent exhibits at the Filipino American Museum at the Ace Hotel Gallery in New York, Mills Gallery of the Boston Center for the Arts, and in Garten Studio in Berlin, Germany.  He has a BA in Sculpture from UC Berkeley, an MFA in New Genres from UCLA, and a PhD from the Centre for Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, University of London. Previous prize funders have included Union Savings Bank, Collinsville Savings Society, Charles & Doris Currier Memorial Fund, Mitchell Auto Group, Mitchell Manchester Memorial, Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund, Inc., Nancy Cloutier Memorial, Peg Douglas Memorial Fund, A & J Quality Roofing, Jerry’s Artarama, Smith Edwards McCoy Architects, object|resonance, Neu/Haviland, Carrie Simon Memorial, Rita Q. Memorial and others. Also on display is a solo show by Suzan Scott entitled, “summerfields.”  During the isolation of the Covid lockdown, Scott intensified her focus on her immediate natural setting and produced paintings in which there is sharpened clarity and depth to sunlight, shadows, field and sky, giving them an accentuated abstract quality.  “I found a rich abundance and diversity in the seeming sameness and simplicity offered each day.”  Scott has been in numerous juried exhibitions and has had solo shows at Five Points Center for the Visual Arts, the University of Connecticut, Wesleyan University, and many other locations.  She has B.A. in Painting and Art History at CCSU. An opening reception and awards presentation are tentatively scheduled (check website) for Saturday, October 16th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The public is warmly invited to attend this free reception.
