The Gallery on the Green’s has its 57th Anniversary Show — an exhibition of fine art by the over 100 members of one of Connecticut’s longest running artist guilds. It is housed in a schoolhouse (circa 1872) with three spacious galleries and an outdoor sculpture garden. The anniversary show includes a stunning array of paintings, sculpture and photography.

Also on exhibit is a solo show by Sharon Lee Dougherty entitled, “Into the Wood.” Dougherty uses oil, glue, acrylic, pastel and watercolor, unusual surfaces and found objects in her mixed media art. She draws upon her experiences over many years photographing and closely observing tree surfaces and has found inspiration from the important mixed media artist Takesada Matsutani.

Dougherty received her Associates Degree in Graphics Communications from Gateway Community College, North Haven; a Certificate in Interior Design from Sacred Heart University, Bridgeport, CT; and studied oil painting, drawing and web design at Northwest Connecticut Community College in Winsted, CT. Her work has been in juried exhibitions at Five Points Gallery, Torrington; Maple and Main, Chester; the Farmington Valley Arts Center, among others.

Come view the creativity and talent of diverse local artists in an intimate exhibition space. The opening reception is a wonderful opportunity to view the art and meet many of the artists in person. Please join us for the reception on Saturday, July 8th from 6:00-9:00 pm. The reception with refreshments is free.
