The New Milford Historical Society will host an art show, AN ARTIST’S EYE ON NEW MILFORD,  to celebrate our beautiful town this fall.  Over the years, many artists have been inspired by the Green, the Housatonic River, Lover’s Leap, and many other sites in our large town. The Society is fortunate to have works by two of New Milford’s favorite artists in its collection: Edith Newton and Woldemar Neufeld.  We thought it was time to see how other artists see New Milford today and share their work with the community.  This is an event you don’t want to miss!
You do not need to be a resident of New Milford to participate in this event.  If you know an artist who might want to submit a piece, an application form will be available on our website by mid May. All work displayed must be original, created by the artist entering the piece.   It must feature recognizable structures, scenes, or events in New Milford.  Paintings using different mediums, photographs, and hand-built models or sculptures may be submitted for consideration.  The show will run from September 15th to October 15th at the Historical Society campus located at the top of the Green on Aspetuck Avenue.  A reception to open the show will be held Friday, September 15th from 7-9 pm.  For more  information  call 860-354-3069, or <a href=click here for an application. " />
