The Canton Artists’ Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artist guild in Connecticut. The membership, which today draws on artists from 30 surrounding towns, is presenting work in celebration of this 64th Anniversary. Paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography are displayed in two large galleries of the circa 1872 former school house that is now Gallery on the Green.


Also on display is a solo show entitled “Winged Things” by Cynthia Cooper. There is a wondrous combination of whimsy and and beauty in her semi-abstract shaped paintings that were inspired by dragonflies, moths and beetles. Cooper uses pattern, repetition and mathematics to create evocative and rhythmic works of art. Always embracing contradictions, Cooper mixes straight lines that drop into curves, ordered systems with additions of randomness, and solidity with motion to form kaleidoscopic compositions that vibrate with tension.


Cooper has a B.F.A. in printmaking from The Pennsylvania State University and had additional training at University of Hartford Art School. Her work has been widely exhibited and has won numerous awards including Best in Show at recent exhibits at both the West Hartford Art League and at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich. Her work is held in many private collections as well as in the permanent collections of Penn State University and The New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain. She lives in Farmington with one other human, two plump cats and two 36 year old cockatoos.

Date: Saturday, July 20th 2024

Time: 11am-5pm

Location: 35 Central St. Windsor, CT 06095

Cost: FREE


The Windsor Art Center Studios hosts eight studio spaces which will be open to the public on Saturday, July 20th from 10am-4pm. Located at 35 Central St. in the center of historic Windsor, CT, Windsor Station was originally built in 1870 as the Hartford & New Haven Railroad Depot and rebuilt to its original Victorian architecture by the Town of Windsor, Amtrak and the Greater Hartford Transit District in 1988, the same year it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Artists at Windsor Art Center Studios work in a variety of media and styles.

Studio artists include:

Cathy Doocy is a painter of contemporary landscapes. “In my work, the representation of a ‘landscape’ is not the final goal. Instead, I use the vernacular of landscape painting as a method for exploring composition and color. My work is about painting not landscape; about illusion not representation; about drawing not twigs and branches.”

Andres Chaparro is a mixed media painter and collagist whose bold and expressive art is a visual representation of jazz music. “I work without premeditation simply following the path that each painting sets forth for me. Through my artwork I strive to create an example of ideas that reflect my desire to raise social consciousness, and cultural awareness.”

LeaAnn Cogswell is a sculptor devoted to the power that lies within the human form. “I consider it a great privilege to work regularly from life. Infinitely varied, the human figure is fascinating and amazingly beautiful, even in all its not-so-perfect forms. A powerful visual subject, it always holds new surprises.”

Xarea Lockhart is an emerging clothing and accessories designer from Connecticut. Xarea hopes to use her work as a vehicle for love and representation for the black community. Xarea also aims to highlight sustainability, ethical production and craftsmanship with her pieces.

Amy Hoffman is a photographer and painter. Her work is inspired by the beauty inherent in nature, exploring perspective and the forms and hues that change with passing seasons. “I enjoy seeking out the hidden complexities in the deceptive simplicity of our natural surroundings.”

Michelle Hawran (studio classroom teacher) is a painter of her own family history. “I have a fear of time, a fear of forgetting my family’s past. I use my work to transform that anxiety into moments of warmth. Not like fading memories of the past at all, but snapshots that capture the vibrancy of that exact moment, years ago.”

The former freight house, also restored, is located across the tracks and is the home of the Windsor Art Center. While travelers may still board trains for Springfield, Hartford and New York from the exterior platform, the updated interior provides space for artists to work and the opportunity to bounce creative ideas off other artists.

For more information, please call 860-688-2528 or email info@windsorartcenter.org.

The Isham-Terry House is a time capsule of genteel life in turn-of-the-century Hartford. In 1896, Dr. Oliver Isham purchased the 1854 Italianate house for his medical practice and as a home for himself, his parents and his three sisters. His sisters, Julia and Charlotte, lived in the house until their deaths in the 1970s as urban renewal claimed many of the houses in the once-grand neighborhood. Explore this beloved family home to learn about the booming industries and culture of Hartford in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, understand medical practice and public health at this time, and learn more about the Isham and Terry families through the items they owned.


Advance registration for tours appreciated, but walk-ups welcome as space permits!

The Canton Artists’ Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artist guild in Connecticut. The membership, which today draws on artists from 30 surrounding towns, is presenting work in celebration of this 64th Anniversary. Paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography are displayed in two large galleries of the circa 1872 former school house that is now Gallery on the Green.


Also on display is a solo show entitled “Winged Things” by Cynthia Cooper. There is a wondrous combination of whimsy and and beauty in her semi-abstract shaped paintings that were inspired by dragonflies, moths and beetles. Cooper uses pattern, repetition and mathematics to create evocative and rhythmic works of art. Always embracing contradictions, Cooper mixes straight lines that drop into curves, ordered systems with additions of randomness, and solidity with motion to form kaleidoscopic compositions that vibrate with tension.


Cooper has a B.F.A. in printmaking from The Pennsylvania State University and had additional training at University of Hartford Art School. Her work has been widely exhibited and has won numerous awards including Best in Show at recent exhibits at both the West Hartford Art League and at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich. Her work is held in many private collections as well as in the permanent collections of Penn State University and The New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain. She lives in Farmington with one other human, two plump cats and two 36 year old cockatoos.

You’re cordially invited to watch an unprecedented event at Hill-Stead as world renowned art conservators David Bull and Teresa Longyear work their magic on three of our priceless masterpieces, Degas’s Dancers in Pink, Manet’s Toreadors, and Monet’s Fishing Boats at Sea. Delve into the world of art restoration and conservation as they unveil the secrets hidden within these magnificent paintings.


What to Expect:

  1. Expert Demonstration: David and Teresa will showcase their expertise as they meticulously restore and preserve our Impressionist masterpieces right before your eyes. Learn about the delicate techniques and careful considerations involved in conserving these invaluable works of art. David and Teresa will perform their work in our Glass Room while you will be able to watch from outside, creating a “fishbowl” effect.
  2. Interactive Learning: This is a unique opportunity to gain insights into the conservation process, which usually takes place behind the scenes and is not accessible to the general public. Discover the challenges faced by conservators and the innovative methods employed to safeguard artistic heritage for future generations.
  3. Rare Opportunity: Witness the transformation as these paintings are brought back to their former glory by removing layers of discoloration and dirt that have accumulated over decades and restoring their original vibrant colors. This treatment will preserve their beauty and historical significance for years to come.
  4. Discussion Panel: Have burning questions about art conservation? Take advantage of our Q&A session and interact with the expert conservators. Gain a deeper understanding of the conservation field and learn how you can contribute to the preservation of cultural heritage. The event will take place on Wednesday, July 24 at 5:30 pm.

The Canton Artists’ Guild began in 1960 and has been continuously operating ever since, making it the longest running of any artist guild in Connecticut. The membership, which today draws on artists from 30 surrounding towns, is presenting work in celebration of this 64th Anniversary. Paintings, drawings, graphic arts, sculpture, ceramics, fiber/beadwork and photography are displayed in two large galleries of the circa 1872 former school house that is now Gallery on the Green.


Also on display is a solo show entitled “Winged Things” by Cynthia Cooper. There is a wondrous combination of whimsy and and beauty in her semi-abstract shaped paintings that were inspired by dragonflies, moths and beetles. Cooper uses pattern, repetition and mathematics to create evocative and rhythmic works of art. Always embracing contradictions, Cooper mixes straight lines that drop into curves, ordered systems with additions of randomness, and solidity with motion to form kaleidoscopic compositions that vibrate with tension.


Cooper has a B.F.A. in printmaking from The Pennsylvania State University and had additional training at University of Hartford Art School. Her work has been widely exhibited and has won numerous awards including Best in Show at recent exhibits at both the West Hartford Art League and at the Bendheim Gallery in Greenwich. Her work is held in many private collections as well as in the permanent collections of Penn State University and The New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain. She lives in Farmington with one other human, two plump cats and two 36 year old cockatoos.

Join us for Music in the Garden with My Politic!


// ABOUT MY POLITIC //

On their upcoming record Missouri Folklore: Songs & Stories From Home, My Politic dig deep into the soil of their home state, shining a light on the complexities and dichotomies of those who plant their roots within it. 

Part autobiographical, part conceptual, every song on Missouri Folklore is set against the backdrop of the Ozark Mountains, which served as the landscapes of longtime friends and bandmates Kaston Guffey and Nick Pankey's early years. Through reflective, imagery-driven songwriting, the pair honestly examine the tangled webs we weave, often overshadowed by the doldrums of everyday life in small-town America.  

Missouri Folklore is a thematic shift from the band's previous record, 2020's Short-Sighted People in Power, which directly responded to the political climate that permeated every aspect of American culture during that chaotic year. That project earned acclaim from a range of outlets, including the Nashville Scene, American Songwriter, and The Alternate Root, bringing a much-deserved and long-awaited new spotlight onto their well-honed artistry.

Missouri Folklore: Songs & Stories From Home marks My Politic's 10th album, but also serves as a thoughtful introduction to Guffey and Pankey's blend of sincere, candid storytelling that echoes the spirit of greats like John Prine, who the band cites as their most significant influence.

Most Recently, Guffey & Pankey have been touring the U.S. extensively. Playing house concerts & listening rooms as well as larger venues opening for folks like Adeem The Artist & Margo Cilker. They have been showing up at festivals as well including The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, Home Sweet Home Festival & the Rock House Music Festival.

Guffey and Pankey's engaging slice-of-life storytelling, expertly-crafted characters & sibling-like harmony, shape a collection of songs that are as intimate and engaging as they are unforgettable. With Missouri Folklore, My Politic pay homage to the people and places that raised them while highlighting the work needed to cultivate a better environment for themselves and those who come next. 


// ABOUT THE MUSIC IN THE GARDEN SERIES //

Stanley-Whitman House's Music in the Garden Series presents artists and shows differently than a club show- instead, our house concert is more up close and personal. All of the artifice is stripped away. There is no stage, no dressing rooms, and no barrier between the performer and the audience. The SWH Music in the Garden series is more like being one step closer to how music was intended- an artist traveling from town to town, telling stories, and making friends. Come check this out!


// ABOUT STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE //

In 1935, Stanley-Whitman House was established as Farmington's first museum. It is a nationally recognized historic house museum and living history center that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington, Connecticut. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, the museum facility centers on a circa 1720 National Historic Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of Colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period-raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The public service areas of the museum, constructed in 2004, include a modern classroom, a period tavern room, a post-and-beam Welcome Center, a research library, an exhibit gallery, the Nancy Conklin History Gallery, and a collection storage area.

In addition to managing Memento Mori, Farmington’s ancient cemetery on Main Street, and the Village Green, located at the intersection of Routes 4 and 10, the museum also oversees the Scott Swamp Cemetery on Route 6. The Stanley-Whitman House is supported in part by the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.

Join us for Music in the Garden with Ringrose and Freeman!


// ABOUT RINGROSE & FREEMAN //

This unique Celtic duo combines singer/guitarist Dan Ringrose, whose voice has been called "stunning", and fiddler Jeanne Freeman, who has been described as "effortlessly virtuosic." Together, they bring a lively freshness to traditional and original tunes and songs, along with stories, poetry, and humor. They have been featured on Connecticut Television, many other television and radio programs, and have performed at numerous festivals and venues.

"Fiddler extraordinaire Jeanne Freeman ... a casual virtuosity...the music is light, airy, and fun, and...really, really good....guitarist Danny Ringrose showcases a stunning voice in a duet that demonstrates why he and Freeman often perform as a duo...." - The Fretboard Journal

Dan Ringrose was reared on Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem music, and began singing their songs by the age of three. With his rich and powerful baritone voice, a mischievous sense of humor, and a comfortable command of the stage, Dan has entertained crowds in festivals, fairs, and concert halls for 30 years. Along with numerous radio and television appearances, he has performed with some of the most notable names in Celtic music, including Tommy Makem, fiddler P.V. O’Donnell, The Clancy Brothers, John Whelan, and others. He has taught at the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music, and has a number of solo recordings.

Jeanne Freeman is the founder and Director of the Connecticut Academy of Irish Music, where she teaches Irish fiddle to students of all ages. Classically trained in her early years, Jeanne studied Irish fiddling with friend and mentor, the late Donegal fiddler P.V. O'Donnell. Jeanne has performed as the featured Irish fiddle soloist with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, and has been the Guest Artist for Simsbury Public School’s town-wide String Festival. She teaches and performs regularly and hosts traditional Irish music sessions throughout the area. Jeanne appears on a number of recordings, including her solo debut CD, “The Fiddler You Are.”

// ABOUT STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE //

In 1935, Stanley-Whitman House was established as Farmington's first museum. It is a nationally recognized historic house museum and living history center that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington, Connecticut. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, the museum facility centers on a circa 1720 National Historic Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of Colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period-raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The public service areas of the museum, constructed in 2004, include a modern classroom, a period tavern room, a post-and-beam Welcome Center, a research library, an exhibit gallery, the Nancy Conklin History Gallery, and a collection storage area.

In addition to managing Memento Mori, Farmington’s ancient cemetery on Main Street, and the Village Green, located at the intersection of Routes 4 and 10, the museum also oversees the Scott Swamp Cemetery on Route 6. The Stanley-Whitman House is supported in part by the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.

Join us for a guided tour of Farmington's Old Cemetery (Memento Mori) and learn about the town's colonial history and early settlers.


// ABOUT MEMENTO MORI WALKING TOURS //

In use as early as 1660, Farmington’s Old Cemetery on Main Street was the town’s boneyard and remained so until the end of the 19th century. Come learn about the cemetery’s history and development along with stories about some of its “residents” and a few tall tales – some scary ones too! Parking is available at the Barney Library which is a short distance away from the Memento Mori Cemetery.

// ABOUT STANLEY-WHITMAN HOUSE //

In 1935, Stanley-Whitman House was established as Farmington's first museum. It is a nationally recognized historic house museum and living history center that teaches through the collection, preservation, research, and dynamic interpretation of the history and culture of early Farmington, Connecticut. Programs, events, classes, and exhibits encourage visitors of all ages to immerse themselves in history by doing, acting, questioning, and engaging in colonial life and the ideas that formed the foundation of that culture.

Located in the historic village of Farmington, the museum facility centers on a circa 1720 National Historic Landmark house furnished with period antiques to reflect the everyday activities of Colonial life in Connecticut. Surrounding the house are period-raised bed gardens, an apple orchard, and heritage stone walls.

The public service areas of the museum, constructed in 2004, include a modern classroom, a period tavern room, a post-and-beam Welcome Center, a research library, an exhibit gallery, the Nancy Conklin History Gallery, and a collection storage area.

Join us for Music in the Garden with The Twangtown Paramours


// ABOUT THE TWANGTOWN PARAMOURS //

Nashville-based husband-and-wife duo Mike T. Lewis and MaryBeth Zamer, known on stage as The Twangtown Paramours, have made a name for themselves defying boundaries with their award-winning catalogue of Americana, folk, and blues anthems. With a slew of accolades for their three full-length albums, they’ve earned a loyal following, balancing serious instrumental and vocal chops with witty stage banter and a lighthearted approach to life. They don’t take themselves, or the world, too seriously. With their third album, Double Down on a Bad Thing, The Twangtown Paramours shift gears to showcase a full band, electric, groove-oriented, upbeat, soul-infused, and retro blues sound. “We want people to have fun, to cheer up, to dance, and to start sporting a positive attitude, dammit,” says Mike.  

Hit songwriter, session musician, and producer Mike Lewis was born in NYC, but his sound is informed by a mix of experiences across the country’s major music centers, including NYC, L.A., Austin, and Nashville. He began learning classical and jazz guitar at age eight, studying under Leonid Bolotine, William Matthews, and Barry Galbraith, before earning degrees at Columbia in New York City and the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles. He wrote a #1 platinum pop hit ranked the 2nd biggest-selling female ballad of all time in Korea, and occasionally plays upright bass for Jimmie Dale Gilmore. 

Born in Washington D.C., lead singer MaryBeth Zamer was raised on a mix of opera and American songbook music, singing along to Dean Martin and Ella Fitzgerald, before discovering Little Feat, Bonnie Raitt, and the blues in high school. A fixture in the Washington, D.C. club scene for years, MaryBeth performed with popular local cover band, Ignition and sang backup vocals for Eva Cassidy’s band, Method Actor. “Eva was a huge influence on my singing style,” MaryBeth says. “She taught me to go beyond having fun and hitting the right notes, to sing in a way that conveys real emotion.” 

MaryBeth and Mike met and started dating in 2009, while both were working on separate musical projects. “The relationship came first,” says MaryBeth, “but I kept hearing songs he’d written that I loved, and I wanted to add my own vocal spin to them. I felt like I could interpret and deliver Mike’s songs the way he intended them to be.” The Twangtown Paramours released their debut self-titled album via Inside Edge Records just a year later in 2010, a well-received, pop-infused folk album that rose to #11 on the Folk charts. In 2012, they released their second full-length project, The Promise of Friday Night, a narrative-driven, acoustic folk album that hit #2 on the Folk charts, #150 on the Americana charts, and #7 on Deep Roots Magazine’s top 50 albums of 2012. In the following years, the pair became three-time finalists at the Kerrville New Folk Competition in Kerrville, TX and winners of the Wildflower Contest in Richardson, TX. They also had the honor to open for major acts such as Joe Ely, Claire Lynch, and Jimmie Dale Gilmore.

Every other Thursday. Please note there is NO CLASS on July 4


Join Bradford Tilden for a deeply restorative and activating Sound Healing Meditation with his voice, crystals/gemstones and crystal bowls. Relax, recharge and release stress and unwanted energies from your body, mind and field.

*Bradford is an agent of change and these are transformational gatherings.

Bradford W. Tilden has been using his voice consciously as a tool for personal energy management and spiritual growth for over 20 years. Blending his voice with the grounding and centering energy of Quartz crystal bowls, he creates powerful, activating channeled sonic transmissions that carry the meditative listener to places of deep cleansing, releasing, purification, energizing, rejuvenation and awakening

Bradford also features Crystal and Gemstone Healing to reach beyond the cellular to the atomic level for truly deep restoration and healing. Stones are passed out to be used during the meditation with the option to purchase for home use.

What to Bring: Bring a blanket, chair or yoga mat. There are some to borrow.

$20 or $25 (pay what you can). PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.

Parking: Park all the way in the back, at the very last building (keep driving until you see the last building and the driveway ends in a circle. Park in that lot and use the entrance with a short ramp. Follow the signs to the Awakening Room. 

About Bradford: Bradford is an internationally recognized composer, pianist and crystal/sound healer. He has produced five albums of healing music to date, and teaches workshops and certification classes in crystal, sound and Universal White Time Healing, an exclusive new healing modality.
