Twenty exhibiting members of the Granby Artists Association (GAA) are showing their work at the Windsor Art Center (WAC) from Oct. 1 to Oct. 29.
Ordinarily Granby artists open their studio doors every October for the GAA Open Studio, but this year such an event is not possible. Instead you can shop early for the holidays at this new show. All of the pieces on display are for sale, including beautiful, smaller art pieces available for sale in the WAC gift shop.
The show, titled Season of Change, features a wide range of media and styles from paintings to pottery, glass to photography. The exhibition theme speaks to how changes in our lives, like the change of the seasons, are unavoidable but accepting change can help us grow.
Here are the featured artists: Bill Bentley, watercolor paintings; Stuart Browning, pastels and watercolor paintings; Sue Canavan, handmade paper flowers; Eliza Carwell, oil paintings; Avis Cherichetti, pottery; Lou Cherichetti, weaving and rugs; Gary Ebersole, charcoal drawings; Laura Eden, egg tempera and watercolor paintings; Aimee Gilbert, handknitted items; Mark Gottlieb, blown glass vases and paperweights; Pam Jones, oil paintings; Sally Sargent Markey, watercolors; George Mattingly, oil paintings; Debby Reelitz, calligraphy; Annukka Ritalahti, stained glass and glass jewelry; Barbara Robinson, acrylic paintings; Barbara Schmidt, wood carvings; Katherine Tolve, mixed media; Wendy VanWeile, photography; Linda Yurasevecz, pottery and raku pottery.
The Windsor Art Center is at 40 Mechanic Street, located behind CVS in Windsor Center. The gallery is open Thursdays, 6–8 p.m., Saturdays, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., and Sundays, 11 a.m.–4 p.m. WAC has COVID-19 protocols in place to keep all attendees safe.
