Pam Carlson of Essex to be Featured at Glastonbury Arts Holiday Art Sale, Nov. 11-12

On Saturday, Nov. 11, and Sunday, Nov. 12, Glastonbury Arts will host its 8th Annual Holiday Art Sale from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the Riverfront Community Center, 300 Welles Street, Glastonbury, CT. 

Pam Carlson of Essex, will be a participant in the show. She has been in the art world since before college where she majored in fine art and education.  She worked in commercial art prior to becoming an art teacher in various public school systems and she now concentrates on painting river, land and sky-scapes of the Connecticut River, but can also be found painting Montana’s “Big Sky” mountains, farms and high plains vistas. 

The diverse selection of styles and subject matter that will be on display offers something to fit most any artistic taste and budget. Meet & Greet Reception from 3:00 – 5:00 pm Saturday.

The artists invited to participate in this two day show were selected for the top-notch caliber of their work and talent; many have been recognized regionally and nationally.  “The secret to the show’s success is the high quality of art work exhibited for sale,” say Glastonbury Arts Co-Presidents Carol Ahlschlager and Richard Hoff, “and visitors to the show will find artists who are eager to engage with an appreciative audience.”

“The show takes place in an inviting setting,” says exhibiting artist Katherine Simmons, “at the Riverfront Community Center, located near the town’s new Boathouse.  Free parking is plentiful.  And, admission to the show is free.”  A portion of show proceeds benefits the education and community enrichment programs of Glastonbury Arts and are tax-deductible.  There will be tax-free shopping on both days, another great reason to browse and buy at the show.

GLASTONBURY ARTS was founded in 1962 by a dedicated group of men and women who were passionate in their commitment to the visual arts. Today, Glastonbury Arts continues to enrich and engage individuals in the creation and appreciation of art. It is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that provides art appreciation programs, art instruction, mentoring, scholarships, and art exhibitions. Proceeds from the Holiday Art Sales will benefit the education and community outreach programs of Glastonbury Arts.
