From February 15 thru March 17, 2013, the Canton Artists' Guild will be hosting 3 exhibitions at the Gallery on the Green.  The public is warmly invited to the Opening Reception Saturday evening, February 15, from 6-9 p.m. 

The downstairs “Main Gallery” will feature a member’s show with the theme “Dreams”. Gallery members will showcase interpretations of dreams in various mediums featuring works in sculpture, paint, pastel, photography and other mixed mediums

The “Upstairs” gallery will showcase an exhibit of waterscapes by Tom Cameron entitled “A WILD AND SCENIC RIVER”. Tom has become an informal ambassador for the ‘wild and scenic’ character of the Farmington River.  This latest exhibit is dominated by his newest work.  Included are serene (almost surreal) waterscapes, bold reflection symmetries, a heron ‘portrait’, striking dew drenched webs, and many other images that one will see only rarely if ever. All images come directly from time on and around his favorite river.  His earlier river works have been shown in solo shows, galleries and collections throughout the Farmington Valley. Tom states; “The river, lighting and seasons generate continuous visual delight. This is where I most often dwell - with the sunrise, on the water.”

The “Lower Farmington River and Salmon Brook Wild & Scenic Management Plan” (2011) and related “Study Report” both featured numerous images from his earlier river works. Additional images can be viewed at www.tomcameronphoto.com.  Tom is General Manager at Ultimate NiTi Technologies in Bristol, CT.


In the 2nd floor “Spotlight” Gallery – Diane Wright, mixed media artist will feature a showing of her work titled “In the Mind’s Eye” which will include new collages and several “story boxes”

The gallery is open Fridays through Sundays from 1pm to 5pm.  The downstairs gallery is handicapped accessible. Gallery on the Green is located within sight of Rt. 44 at 5 Canton Green Rd.   For more information about Gallery on the Green please visit our web site, www.galleryonthegreen.org
