As summer winds down and the the trees begin their transformation into the glorious, flaming spectacle of Fall, come to the Canton Artist Guild member exhibition “Falling Leaves” where the artists explore the eternal cycle of change through sculpture, fiber art, prints, drawings, paintings, mixed media and photography.

Color Collections is a Member/Guest exhibition in the Upstairs Galleries, showing the distinctive artworks of Peggy Dembicer and Linda Pearson as well as engaging abstracts that the artists created together.

The collaborative works combine Pearson’s colorful paintings and Dembicer’s paperweaving processes to create unique and complex abstractions.

Peggy Dembicer is a contemporary fiber and mixed media artist noted for intricate beaded tapestries, modern and colorful 2D and 3D paper weaving, as well as the creative application of recycled materials in framed and sculptural artworks.

Linda Pearson majored in art and art history at Northwestern University. Early in her art career, she worked as a batik artist, creating and teaching in her studio at the Farmington Valley Art Center. In the past decade, her focus has shifted to painting with Prismacolor pencils, watercolors, and acrylics. Her abstracted designs draw inspiration from landscapes, beach scenes, florals and non-representational forms.

The artists exhibit regularly through Connecticut Women Artists, West Hartford Art League, Simsbury Open Studios, New Britain Museum’s Nor’Easter exhibitions and Gallery on the Green.

The opening reception for both shows is Saturday, September 9th from 6:00-8:00 pm.  The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.
