Press release from Gallery on the Green
Love is in the air at the Gallery on the Green in Canton as the gallery presents a special month-long tribute to the spirit of Valentine's Day. Love and Chocolate, a members' themed show, opens on Valentine's Day, Fri., Feb. 14, and runs until Sun., Mar. 16. There will be a gala opening reception on Sat., Feb. 15 from 6—9 pm. with both sweet and savory treats including chocolate from the Bridgewater company. The public is warmly invited to attend this free event.
There are 3 shows running concurrently. The main exhibition in the Founders Gallery—Love and Chocolate—features art work inspired by those subjects we associate with Valentine Day, themes that many famous artists have addressed throughout the ages. Members will interpret the theme in their own unique ways using the medium of their choice.
In addition, Bob Gingras has a show titled …a time ...a place ...a memory in the Upstairs Gallery. He attended the University of Hartford, Hartford Art School and graduated from Paier College of Art, is also a Gemologist and a senior member of the National Association of Jewelry Appraisers. Gingras says, "I am a realistic acrylic painter. I like to focus on subjects or places that I have been that I connect with emotionally. Once I have the composition and color palette mapped out I fastidiously apply layers of color, and details. So the viewer is enticed and invited to walk into the painting and enjoy the scenery. I like to leave the feeling of 'wow' and have the viewer say, 'I thought it was a photograph.'"

Rozanne Hauser’s show Sky Light is featured in the Spotlight Gallery. She has studied with many fine instructors on both the national and local level. Hauser states, "I am guided by my love of color and the effects of light. The ever-changing cloud patterns and the variations in the colors of the sunset are my muse; they catch my breath and I know I must try and capture that feeling. My work is in pastel with an occasional watercolor underpainting to make it glow."
