Artists & Authors

Friday, July 23, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Cornwall Historical Society, 7 Pine Street

In connection with our 2016 exhibit “Artists & Authors,” the Historical Society will host Family Art Day, featuring artists Joe Brien and Danielle Mailer.

Brien, of Lost Art Workshops, will lead workshops at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. in which children and adults will make their own table top easels using 19th century hand tools and techniques. Mailer will lead art projects throughout the day. Children’s tours of the exhibit, which features the rich tradition of creativity in Cornwall, will be running throughout the day. All ages are welcome.

This event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration for woodworking workshops is highly encouraged, as space is limited. Also, for the woodworking workshops, children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult. To register, please write: or register here

The exhibit and related programs have been generously funded by the Buchanan Fund through The Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut, National Iron Bank, and Torrington Savings Bank.

We look forward to seeing you
