“No Boundaries” by Chandra Rogers

“For me, art is a journey where I can always find a peaceful state of mind,” says Litchfield County artist Chandra Rogers. Her newest collection of paintings, inspired by the natural beauty she finds in her local surroundings, will be on display at the Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery in Washington from April 20 to June 1.

“I begin with a simple idea or a spark of inspiration from something I find beautiful or interesting,” says Rogers explaining her process. “I organize my thoughts with sketches, drawings and photographs to help me with composition. Finally, I turn up my music, shut out the world, and let the creativity flow!”

Next Exhibit-June 8  through July 20, 2019 –
“Landscapes by Frank Metz”

A new collection of landscape paintings by Connecticut artist Frank Metz will be on display at Washington’s Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery from June 8 to July 20. There will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, June 14 from 12 noon to 2 PM.

Working in both oil and watercolor, Metz has been painting landscapes for over sixty years. During that time, his award-winning work has been the subject of several solo shows and his paintings have been acquired by over a dozen corporate collections.

Much of Metz’s inspiration comes from the coastlines of England, Scotland, Maine, Long Island, and Connecticut where he has lived in Litchfield County for forty years. His themes are the water’s edge, shallows, pools, sand, rocks, and especially the sky. In a typical Metz landscape, skies are as full of life and color as the land below.
