52nd Annual Open Juried Exhibition
Gallery on the Green presents its 52nd Annual Open Juried Exhibition. The selections were made by Mell Scalzi, a practicing artist and the Registrar at Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme Connecticut. Scalzi has worked at the Museum of Art and Design in NYC and at the New York Historical Society. As this is an open exhibition, it features the work of artists from all over Connecticut and beyond. On display is fine art in a wide variety of styles, media and subject matter including painting, drawing, photography, ceramics and sculpture. The juror awards prizes totaling more than $2000. Prize funders include Union Savings Bank, Collinsville Savings Society, Charles & Doris Currier Memorial Fund, Mitchell Auto Group, Mitchell Manchester Memorial, Maxwell Shepherd Memorial Arts Fund, Inc., Nancy Cloutier Memorial, Peg Douglas Memorial Fund, A & J Quality Roofing, Jerry’s Artarama, Smith Edwards McCoy Architects, object|resonance, Neu/Haviland, Carrie Simon Memorial, Rita Q. Memorial and others.
Tom Cameron’s solo show, “Dip-Trip-Polytych,” features over 30 digital images that develop pictorial ideas through multi-image combinations. Though typically a realist photographer concentrating on nature-based water subjects (often via kayak), he also experiments with images in which the tonality or composition can be more important than image details. This exhibit takes the viewer through several subject areas that examine the way multi-image compositions expand or complete an idea. Included are images of Maine’s Monhegan Island, Venice, floral subjects and others.
Cameron has studied photography at Tunxis Community College and developed his style over the last 15 years. He has been featured in numerous solo shows throughout the area and has won awards in four juried exhibitions.
An opening reception and awards presentation will be held on Saturday, October 12th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The public is warmly invited to attend this free reception.
