A wonderful opportunity for artists in northeastern Connecticut is the opening of an artists' co-operative art gallery in Lebanon, Connecticut in the lovely barn pictured above. I am delighted to be a part of this and will help to hang the first show which will include some of my work. It opens to the public on Saturday, July 5, 2014. Below is our press release. Please share the news with your friends and come to see our Art Show!
Twenty-two local artists and artisans will open the new Lebanon Art Gallery located at 927 Trumbull Hwy (Rt. 87), Lebanon, CT 06249. The gallery will be open from Noon to 6:00 Friday through Sunday beginning Saturday, July 5, 2014 since Friday is the holiday. A “Meet The Artists” reception will be from 5-7:00 PM on July 11nd. The show will end on July 27 with the second show open between August 8 and Sept. 1.
Lebanon Art Gallery is a local association devoted to promoting artists and craftspeople. Its mission is to be a seasonal gallery space dedicated to showing and selling the work of local and Lebanon based artists and artisans. The gallery will be open from May through October and serve community members of all ages, as a gathering place for classes, workshops and enjoyment of the arts.
Our vision is that artists, craftspeople, writers and musicians will volunteer time and expertise to make the gallery a success. The barn space, garden and Tea House available for the Gallery is being generously offered by Sandra Samolis, a long-time Lebanon resident and artist.
