The Sharon Historical Society & Museum located on 18 Main Street in Sharon has announced the opening of the new exhibit in Gallery SHS, works by the Kent artist TOMAS SAVRDA. This show is being held at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum Art Gallery March 16 through May 10. The public is invited to attend the artists’ opening reception on Saturday, March 16, from 5-7PM.
Tomas is known for creations that are somehow charming and whimsical, but also distinctly edgy and thought-provoking. Constructed from wood, tin, stone, and found objects, his masks, mini stage scenes, and free-standing kinetic sculptures look like they have tumbled from some nineteenth-century cabinet of forgotten toys. Some are meditations on memory, innocence, and isolation; others are traditional folk stories filtered through dreams. They are also beautiful. A portion of all purchase proceeds will support the Sharon Historical Society & Museum’s mission.
Gallery SHS is located in the Sharon Historical Society & Museum at 18 Main Street in Sharon, CT. Museum hours are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 4:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and by appointment. For more information and directions to Gallery SHS, call (860) 364-5688.
