The guild consists of over 100 juried members and is one of Connecticut’s longest continuously running artist guilds. Come see a stunning array of newly created fine art prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, ceramics, collages and fiber art. The shows run from Aug 30th to Sep28th. 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 and evening of readings by David Leff. Leff is the poet laureate of the town of Canton and will be reading fromThe 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.
