This post is about a venue that you might not think about when talking about galleries. Gifted Hands is a boutique on the border of Byram and Greenwich in Connecticut which features local artwork. All of the pieces are for sale and they usually aren’t as expensive as buying a piece from a gallery or museum. Plus, to me a piece created by someone local gives it such a personal feel because you know the artist is homegrown and usually you get a little bit more information about the process they used to make it.

Gifted Hands is located on Mill Street in Greenwich, CT and is open Monday through Friday from 11:00am to 5:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Take time to visit this wonderful boutique to pick up something special and locally made. While you’re there, be sure to talk to the staff because they usually know the artists and their work first hand, that way you get an inside look into your purchase. So feel free to stop in and peruse all of the local art!

It’s time for another session of our favorite day of the week! Free Tuesdays is about museums that open their doors to the public free of charge. This week we will be featuring the Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY and the Bendheim Gallery at the Greenwich Arts Council on ‘The Avenue’ in Greenwich, CT.

 

Currently the Bendheim Gallery is featuring the works of Fereshteh Priou. With beautiful simplicity, her ink on paper evokes effortless movement. Born in Iran, studied in Paris, and a longtime resident of Connecticut, Priou is a member of the Greenwich Arts Council and Connecticut Portrait Artists. She uses simple lines in order to express the beauty of the human form. Her works will be on view through the month of April. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 10am-5pm and Saturday and Sunday 12pm-5pm.

Curious Exploration isn’t your grandma’s art exhibit! Humorous film stills and mechanical forms invite people to use their imaginations, and feel like a kid again. The exhibit will be open through April 2nd and the artists included are Lien Chen Lin, Scott Fitzgerald, Andrea Goldman, Fernando Orellana, Arthur Ganson and Becky Sellinger. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10am–5pm and Saturday from 12pm-4pm.

Both of these galleries are open to the public completely free of charge. If you would like to make a donation to help keep these venues free to the public, please visit the websites below.
