In Payson Gallery

“Winter Interlude”, an exhibition at the City Hall Gallery, will be on view from February 2 to March 31, 2016. This new exhibition includes work by artists Elizabeth Chase, Betty Schaffer, Lois Perient and Nancy Caffall. Exhibiting artists will show paintings of Pioneer Valley scenes in winter when the days are short and the landscape is quiet.

Easthampton City Arts+ is partnering with the Easthampton Art Guild to exhibit a series of shows for a year in Easthampton’s City Hall Gallery. The Easthampton Art Guild will be organizing a variety of group shows through 2016. Easthampton City Arts+ appreciates the Easthampton Art Guild for sharing their work with the community and persevering in their creative pursuits as an inspiration to us all.

What is the EAG?
The Easthampton Art Guild (EAG) is comprised of a diverse community of artists who meet weekly. Guild members paint, draw, collage, share with and learn from each other. The group is committed to creating a community that is supportive, respectful and inspiring. The EAG supports the arts in Easthampton and the surrounding towns.

In 2006, the Easthampton Art Guild was inspired by art classes offered through the Easthampton Council on Aging and Enrichment Center. The Guild was formed to provide local artists who are seniors the opportunity to create and share art. A foremost goal of the group is to involve the community by “bringing art to the community and the community to art”. They make work, exhibit, and create opportunities such as demonstrations and museum visits. Previously, they have organized exhibits and studio visits for high school students.

This exhibit is free and open to the public. The City Hall Gallery is located in Easthampton’s Municipal Building at 50 Payson Avenue on the 1st floor, Easthampton, MA. The gallery is open Monday – Thursday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM.
