Gallery on the Green
Jan. 10, 2023 - Feb. 9, 2020
Gallery on the Green in Canton, CT presents the “Members’ New Work” and a solo show by Margaret Schuster. The main floor and the large upstairs gallery feature newly created work by artist members. Enjoy the diverse creativity of talented local artists in an intimate and historical exhibition space. On view are prints, drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, fiber, mixed media and ceramics by the over 100 members in Connecticut’s longest running artists’ guild.
Margaret Schuster is the solo artist in the spotlight gallery. Her show entitled “Farm & Nature” includes landscapes, animals and nature scenes done in pastel or oil. Schuster notes that “my career as a teacher and naturalist have taught me to look closely at everything and that is reflected in my work. I especially enjoy painting scenes from my farm.”
Shuster currently works primarily in pastels. She honed her skills through workshops with Liz Haywood Sullivan, Karen Israel and Alain J. Picard. She has exhibited at the McClean Home, Seabury of Bloomfield, Squire Tavern in Barkhamsted, West Hartford Art Gallery, Avon and New Hartford Town Halls and many local libraries. Her work has been in numerous juried shows including the East Granby Public Library, Kent Art League, Gallery on the Green, Underground Gallery, Lost Acres Vineyard, West Hartford Art League and New Hartford Art League (winning honorable mention). Schuster is a member of the Canton Artists’ Guild, New Hartford Art League and the Connecticut Pastel Society and a board member of the Avon Arts Association.
The opening reception for these shows is Saturday, January 11th from 6:00-9:00 pm. The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.
