CHESTER – Imagining Chester, a special exhibit of paintings interpreting scenes of Chester will be shown during November at Maple and Main Gallery and will benefit residents in need.
A percentage of each painting sold will be contributed to the Community Fund and Emergency Fuel bank which allocates money to residents who need help with their heating bills and other emergencies.
The show will be in Maple and Main’s Stone Gallery and will feature paintings done from photographs of Chester Creek, the Pattaconk Brook, the Connecticut River looking toward the East Haddam Bridge, a red barn in town and a scene from the Winter Carnivale.
On Saturday, Nov. 1, there will be an informal wine reception to usher in the exhibit from 5 to 7 p.m.
The gallery, at One Maple Street, is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Some of the Chester paintings can be seen in the events section of the gallery website: mapleandmaingallery.com.
