Calling all art enthusiasts and nature lovers! This November, please join the Granby Land Trust in celebrating New England’s natural beauty at its juried art show, Nov. 1 through Dec. 2, at Lost Acres Vineyard. All art is available for purchase, with a portion of proceeds supporting the Land Trust’s efforts to protect the land, water and wildlife of Granby.
This show is highly selective and only the best art is chosen for display. Last year, 189 pieces of original artwork were submitted; fewer than half—just 91—were accepted for the show. This year, Pamela St. Clair, the director and curator of Cooper and Smith, a 5,000 square-foot gallery in Essex, will jury art submissions.
The show opens with a catered reception, open to all, on Thursday, Nov. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. This is your first chance to see the art up close. Nearly $5,000 in awards will be presented to artists at the reception.
The Land Trust is grateful to all of its award underwriters and, particularly, to its event sponsors: Mark Wetzel/Fiduciary Investment Advisors, LLC; Ted Cormier/ALIRT Insurance Research, LLC; founding award sponsors Don and Marty Wilmot; Michelle Niedermeyer and Kevin Riggott of Lost Acres Vineyard; and all the other award sponsors for their ongoing, loyal support of the show.
The Land Trust protects more than 2,500 acres of open space, forests, wildlife habitat, agricultural land, water buffers, ecologically sensitive areas, and scenic vistas in Granby.
Lost Acres Vineyard is located at 80 Lost Acres Road, in North Granby. Gallery hours are Friday and Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.; Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit granbylandtrust.org.
