Best Art Gallery- 2017
Silver Circle Art Center was recently awarded "Best Art Gallery of 2017" in Norwich Magazine's annual Best of Northeastern Connecticut roundup. We are humbled to receive this honor, and strive to continue to provide a hub for artists in the quiet corner of Connecticut.
A Million Reasons to LOVE Putnam!
We launched our Community Art Project: "A Million Reasons to Love Putnam" on July 1, 2017 during the Downtown Putnam Star Spangled Celebration. The idea was the creation of Art Center Education Program Coordinator, Heather Mitchell, and was designed and hand-bound (using the coptic method) by Gallery Manager, Kennedy Marshall. The binding is made of multicolored yarns and is intricately braided with waxed linen thread weaved through natural handmade Italian paper. Whether you are a resident, a visitor, a vacationer, or a passerby, we urge you to visit our exceptional gallery and write down one of your reasons why you love Putnam! Once the journal is full, it will be donated to the Putnam Visitors' Center for future generations to view, relish, and enjoy!
First friday- August 4th
We are excited to announce our next first friday event which will feature art in the making by our talented collective members Elisabeth McGinn and Shaun Rock! We hope you can stop in, meet the artists, and join in the festivities!
