Vince Giarrano, professional fine art painter from Washington CT, will present a program for dedicated fine artists entitled "Creating Your Own Career" on Sunday, May 22nd, from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm.at Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio in New Milford.  

Any artist who is attempting to navigate the waters of the art market and find their ideal place in it will appreciate hearing about Giarrano's steps to success.  He figured it out and is admired by visual artists of all levels. His program on May 22 will detail some of his best tips to help aspiring artists of any media figure out a plan for realizing their goals. Participants will begin their process during this workshop. Please bring a notebook/sketchbook and a pen. 

Light refreshments will be offered. Vince had established himself as an illustrator of comic books, but yearned to leave that profession to concentrate on fine art painting.  Over a period of 16 years he used a variety of methods to understand how to reach his goals, to consciously refine his own artistic concept, and to make a plan of action for reaching his audience.  His paintings capture the beauty that exists in people moving through everyday life, in particular everyday life in New York City.  Mr. Giarrano is now represented in galleries across the U.S., U.K. and in Europe.

 Brownie Scout Troop 40277 Visits Gallery 25
 On April 10, Gallery 25 and Creative Arts Studio recently hosted a visit from Brownie Scout Troop 40277 and their leaders, Heather Hall, Jessica Fleet, and Charlotte Hallock. The gallery visit fulfilled a requirement for a fine art badge. In addition to visiting the gallery and learning about the variety of media and arts presented in the current exhibition entitled "Spring at Last," three artist-members of the gallery demonstrated their media of choice. Samantha Moore, a fused-glass artist from Bridgewater, presented a display of special glasses and tools needed to create jewelry and other glass art pieces. Her demonstration included glass-cutting and edge treatments, and stories about the frustrations and rewards that come with working with glass. Danna Phalen, from Brookfield is an artist who paints with alcohol-based inks on YUPO. The girls were entertained with the vibrancy of colors and Danna's abstract application of the media. Danna led them through a series of paint applications that encouraged imaginative and creative responses from the girls. Diane Dubreuil, a plein air watercolor artist, displayed her sketchbooks and spoke about value studies and art journaling related to her plein air experiences. On her easel was an example of a painting created en plein air last spring on Whittlesey Avenue in New Milford. At the close of the program, each scout spoke briefly about her favorite art piece in the current gallery show. Assisting with the program was Barbara Payne, member of New Milford Commission on the Arts.




Welcome back Dr. James Scrimgeour 
on Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 2:00 pm.

Join us in the gallery for a very special afternoon presentation by Dr. James R.  Scrimgeour, a Professor Emeritus at Western Connecticut State University.  Dr. Scrimgeour has published nine books of poetry and over 220 poems in anthologies and periodicals. He has been nominated for several Pushcart Prizes, and he has given over 250 public readings of his work including one at an International Conference on Poetry and History, Stirling, Scotland. Furthermore, he was one of five poets recently featured on the CBS CT poetry blog. 
     Dr Scrimgeour will read poems that represent at least three of his major interests: 
poems about his family (a long-standing staple of his work), poems dealing with the relationship between landscape and consciousness (i.e., poems written ‘in plain air’), and poems written as a result of his engagement with the work of Monet including poems that grew out of his recent visit to France.
     He currently resides in New Milford Connecticut with his wife, Christine Xanthakos Scrimgeour, and serves New Milford on its arts commission.                     http://people.wcsu.edu/scrimgeourj/

On Saturday, June 20th from 1-5:00 , Danna will return for an intermediate "Landscapes and More" painting class. The cost for this one is $65.
