Gallery 25 is excited to announce their upcoming month long event with the Connecticut Clay Artists. Throughout the month of August, Gallery 25 will host six members of the Connecticut Clay Artists, with an opening reception on Saturday, August 10th from 5PM – 8PM. The public is invited to attend. Refreshments will be served and many of the artists will be available to discuss their work and creative process.
The Connecticut Clay Artists are a professional group of potters from Fairfield County that include members working in stoneware, porcelain, terracotta and earthenware. All pieces are both functional and decorative and are created using techniques that include hand-built, wheel thrown and sculpted pottery. “Connecticut Clay Artists are happy to return to Gallery 25 for their third year. The ceramic pieces are a wonderful complement to the paintings on the walls. The forms echo the glass and wood creations in the gallery” said Paula Marion, Gallery 25 member and CCA member. Participating artists are Roberta Ahuja, Paula Cook, Sarah Bernhardt, Rosalind Lijengren, Paula Marion and Karen Pinto.
With guidance from the New Milford Commission on the Arts, Gallery 25 was founded in the fall of 2014 as a cooperative-style art gallery representing local and regional award-winning artists and artisans. Gallery exhibitions, both then and now, include a wide variety of unique fine art and fine artisan creations in a wide range of media. Renewing interest and growth in the local art scene is a priority of the gallery and its member artists.

Gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, 12PM to 8PM, Thursday and Sunday, 12 Pm to 5 pm or by appointment (phone 860-355-6009). Admission is free. Ample free parking is available.
