Cost:  Free – open to the public

Opening Reception:  Saturday, July 9th 6:00-8:00 pm.

Come celebrate the 62nd Anniversary of Gallery on the Green in an exhibition of paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography all created by members of the Canton Artists’ Guild.  Also on display is a solo photography show by Richard Alan Cohen entitled, “Microcosmic Landscapes.”
The Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artists’ guild in Connecticut. Today’s membership is comprised of over 80 juried artists from 30 surrounding towns. The Gallery on the Green is located in an iconic former schoolhouse circa 1872

In “Microcosmic Landscapes” Cohen presents grand panoramas made by photographing small natural niches. The result is a changed perspective highlighting how even the smallest parts of nature are under threat. Cohen is a conceptual landscape photographer whose images highlight his reverential relationship with the environment through which he walks daily. Taking a novel perspective of mossy rocks, small waterfalls, and mere rivulets, he makes grand hyper-realistic landscapes that emphasize the importance, fragility and incredible beauty of these environmental niches.  His imagery appears otherworldly, imparting a respectful distance from the ordinary reality in which the landscape is threatened by effects of global warming.

Cohen grew up in Portland, Maine, and attended Bowdoin College where he co-majored in art and science. Having always maintained an avid interest in art, he has now transitioned from a 40-year career in cardiovascular research to being a full-time fine art photographer.  Cohen has exhibited his photographs in numerous solo and group shows in New York, Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut and San Allende, Mexico.
The opening reception for both shows is Saturday, July 9th from 6:00-8:00 pm.  The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.

The Gallery on the Green has 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: [email protected].
