Current 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.

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.
