Sherman Library Art Show

Great Hollow Artists Invitational
August 23 – October 3, 2018




 The Sherman Library is pleased to announce a show by a group of Great Hollow Artists. These artists were part of the Great Hollow Juried Painting and Photography Show June 15 – 17, 2018. We have invited the winners, honorable mentions and a few others to participate and share with you their love of nature depicting wildlife, the seasons and walks in the woods.

Artists included in the show are: Gretchen Hoffman Abene, Paola Bari, Gigi Barrett, Gene Cadore, Tim Clark, John Clery, Carolyn Cohen, John Foley, Terry Froehlich, Terryl Gabel, Jeff Ginsburg, Justin Goodhart, Kelly Goodhart, Kevin Heffman, Linda Hubbard, Basha Maryanska, William McCann, Betty Ann Medeiros, Dawn O’Creene, Barbara Soares, Jim Stasiak, Chrissy Swain, and Margaret Unfired.

This selection of artwork is a sampling of more than 80 pieces in the Great Hollow Juried Painting and Photography Show held at the Great Hollow Nature Preserve and Ecological Research Center, 255 State Road 37, New Fairfield, Connecticut. The Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to land and wildlife conservation, applied ecological research, experiential environmental education, and outdoor recreational opportunities for the public enjoyment of nature. The Great Hollow Juried Painting and Photography Show was sponsored by the Great Hollow Photographers Club (GHPC). Formed by members of the local community who have a shared interest in nature photography, the goals of the GHPC are to use photography to support the educational and conservation missions of Great Hollow Nature Preserve, improve the photographic skills of members through the sharing of knowledge and experience, and to provide a forum for members to engage in their hobby.
