Tom Cameron’s solo show, “Dip-Trip-Polytych,” 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 BS in Mechanical Engineering, a 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 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.

Gallery on the Green presents  “Autumn Member Exhibition” plus solo shows by Lynne Anstett and by Carol Chaput and Rachel Miller.

Canton, CT - Friday, August 30th through Sunday, September 28th

Cost: Free – open to the public

The Gallery on the Green presents the “Autumn Member Exhibition” consisting of fine art by the over 100 juried members of the Canton Artists’ Guild, Connecticut’s longest continuously running artist guild. This former historic schoolhouse (circa 1872) has three spacious galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. Come see a stunning array of newly created prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, ceramics, collages and fiber art.
An opening reception with free refreshments takes place on Saturday, August 31st from 6 – 9 pm.

Lynne Anstett’s solo photography exhibit is entitled, “Iconic Architecture and the Surrounding Landscape....Through My Lens.” Anstett captures the magnificence and beautiful natural setting of historically important structures ranging from the Keystone Arch Bridge in Massachusetts to the Eiffel Tower. “Photography, to me, is a way of paying visual attention and tribute to what is otherwise often missed or taken for granted – the quiet dignity of buildings, the magnificence of sky, water and land, the mystery of old things.” Anstett is the author of a book of poetry and photography entitled, “Love Bound: The Journey.” Since 2011 she has been producing and selling versions of her photos as calendars, day planners and note cards.
Also on view is “Ebb and Flow,” an exhibit of work by Carol Chaput and Rachel Miller. Chaput has images of the natural world which she created using oil, acrylic, graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, silverpoint, metal leaf, and powdered earth pigments. Other pieces are from a series of assemblages created with found, inherited, and collected objects. Chaput’s art has appeared in exhibits throughout New England, in the mid-Atlantic states, New York and Washington DC. Her work is included in private collections as well as various state and corporate collections. Throughout her career as a sculptor, Miller has worked in a variety of different mediums. In the last several years, she has focused on the art of paper making and has perfected techniques that allow her to wall mount her delicate flower sculptures. Recently she has explored wire sculpture and has incorporated it into her work. Known for her sinuous line, form and texture, she has shown widely in New England and has work in many collections both private and corporate.

**There will also be a special event on Sunday evening, September 15th when the gallery hosts an evening of readings by David Leff. Leff is the poet laureate of the town of Canton and will be reading from The Breach, his new novel in verse inspired by life in Collinsville. The event will be held at 5:00 p.m followed by a book signing and reception.

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

Canton, CT -  Friday, June28th through Sunday, Aug 4th

Opening Reception and Summer Party:  Saturday, June 29th  6:00-9:00 pm 

Cost:  Free – open to the public

The Gallery on the Green presents its 59th Anniversary Exhibition — newly created fine art works from the 100+ members of one of Connecticut's longest running artist guilds. Two large galleries host the exhibition and Marlene Mayes presents a solo show in a third gallery. The shows combine to provide a stunning array of paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography.

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.

Marlene pursued a career in teaching and educational administration.  She was fortunate to obtain a position in “post-retirement” at the Institute for Living with the Grace Webb School.  She participated in the University of Connecticut Master Gardener Program, which required 30 hours of fieldwork outreach. This lead to an assignment in the 4H Educational Program at Auerfarm.  The demonstration gardens and the 124 acres for farmland, pastures and woodlands paths have been the major creative source for her paintings.

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. The main floor gallery is handicapped accessible.  Tel.  860-693-4102 / www.galleryonthegreen.org / e-mail: cantonartistsguild@gmail.com.  


Gallery on the Green presents the Member/Guest Show and solo exhibits by Holly Hall and Mark Snyder

Canton, CT - Friday, May 24th through Sunday, June 23rd

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 25th 6:00-9:00 pm

The main floor of the gallery features newly created work by artist members and invited guest artists. Come see the creativity and talent of diverse local artists in an intimate and historical exhibition space. On view are prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, fiber and ceramics.
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.

The opening reception for all three shows is Saturday, May 25th from 6:00-9:00 pm. The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.
