Artist Lorraine Ryan at the White Silo!!

The White Silo Farm & Winery at #32, Rte 37 East, in Sherman, CT., is pleased to announce a gallery show of paintings by local artist and Gallery 5 participant, Lorraine Ryan. The paintings will be exhibited from September 1 to October 1, 2017.

In her upcoming exhibit at the White Silo Farm & Winery, Ms. Ryan’s paintings represent her love affair with the fields and forests, the homes and barns and animals, of Litchfield County, as well as other parts of New England.

If you have questions about the dates and ties, please call the While Silo.

Closed for a Little While - We are HAPPY!

This year has had its ups and downs. The gallery is currently down and will be closed for less than three weeks (we hope). This is very good!! We are happy!!

The Town of New Milford via a generous donation from New Milford Commission on the Arts will install enhanced track lighting. Then, town Facilities will clean and resurface the floors, and install a picture rail (we may have a partial donation for this!). We expect to be back in the space by September 25 and open again by the next weekend.

Lots to look forward to! The gallery will join local businesses for Small Business Saturday and will exhibit a fall theme and lots of new artwork!! Our artists have had a busy summer! Then, the gallery will participate in the Wine Stroll in December and facilitate the model train exhibit in December.

All this moving around has taken lots of time and energy. Among those we can thank (at this time) are Paula Marian, Mary and Steve Tanenbaum, and Judith Secco. We know more are due a BIG Thank You! Paula arranged to have the Connecticut Clay Artists exhibit with us. A fabulous show!! Thank you!

More to come as the building enhancements are realized!

Note: the Gallery 25 project for New Milford is wonderful! In August, the gallery hosted more than 200 unique visitors!!! We thank the New Milford Art Walk organizers for most of that. Visitors to New Milford, in some cases, are repeats. They are coming for dinner or for a specific event. then, they "window shop". The gallery artists help with that also (artists love to shop and love to "look around").

Oh! With all this happening, we decided our Open Show will be held in the Spring.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!
