The 36 artists at Maple & Main Gallery are presenting a three-part opening and reception on Friday evening in Chester village center. 200+ works of new original art and sculpture will be on exhibit for holiday shopping. There will be a range of small works and a special array of 4″ and 5″ square little gems around the holiday tree to bring home for your own gifting delight.
In addition, there will be a “Snow Show” looking toward the classic winter beauty of Connecticut fields and marshes under blankets of snow. Barbara Hageman has done a series of local barns that are on exhibit in the Small Works gallery.
Madison artist, Janine Roberston, is exhibiting a gorgeous array of large and small works in this show.
Finally, there is a silent auction of small works. It runs through the weekend to benefit the Soldiers’ Boxes effort that packs up goodies and toiletries to send to our troops in Afghanistan as part of the Clinton-based Shoreline Women’s Club seven-year-long project.
Cindy Stevens, one of the M&M gallery artists, spearheads this effort, and proceeds from the auction will help her fill these boxes for the holidays. The rest of the Gallery artists are joining by providing silent auction paintings intended to raise funds to fill those boxes to the brim with holiday cheer and practical items to remind the troops of home. The auction starts Nov. 13 and ends Sunday, Nov. 17 at 5 p.m.
