Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Library is unable to offer art exhibits. We are working hard to resume art exhibits at some point in 2021. We also hope to begin offering some virtual artist tours through Instagram. Please check back regularly and consider joining our e-news and social media for regular updates.
The Jamie Gagarin Art Gallery and Exhibits at OWL
The Oliver Wolcott Library features art exhibits that rotate every two months. The exhibits are displayed in the
Jamie Gagarin Community Room & Gallery.
All exhibits include an opening reception on the first Thursday of every other month between 5 and 7 p.m.
Patrons can meet the artist, have a first look at the artwork and enjoy refreshments. All exhibits and opening
receptions are free and open to the public.
Since the art gallery shares its space with the community and library events, it is recommended that you confirm
that the art gallery is open before visiting. Please call us at 860-567-8030.
How to Submit Art for Consideration for an Exhibit
All artwork exhibited is selected through a competitive, juried process by the Cultural Committee appointed by the President of the OWL Board of Trustees. The Cultural Committee uses guidelines in its selection including technique, price range, size of proposed work, type of medium, type and style of framing, and artist credentials.
