The Gallery on the Green will be having its annual Open Juried Exhibition from October 14th through November 12th. The juror for this exhibition is Bob Burns, Director of the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury, Connecticut. As this is an open exhibition, it will feature the work of artists from all over Connecticut and beyond. On
display will be fine art in a wide variety of styles, media and subject matter including painting, drawing, photography and sculpture. Multiple prizes will be awarded. These are funded by Union Savings Bank, Collinsville Savings Society, Mitchell Auto Group, Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund, Inc., Penny Doyle, A & J Quality Roofing, Jerry’s Artarama, West Hartford, Smith Edwards McCoy Architects, object|resonance, 41Bridge Street, Shirley Mae Neu & Frank Haviland and the Canton Artists’ Guild.

In an upstairs gallery Hedy Chang will have a solo show entitled, “Inspiration and Desire.” Chang’s paintings are inspired by her family and her travels, so her art often features genre scenes with her grandchildren and landscapes from her travels to China. She has recently switched from watercolor to oil paint which allows her to use the bright and vibrant colors she loves.

An opening reception and awards presentation will be held on Saturday, October 15 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.
