Connecticut's Oldest Running Artists' Guild
Celebrating 50+ years
of art, artists and community!
The Gallery on the Green opened its doors in 1960 becoming one of Connecticut’s longest running artists cooperatives. Incorporated
as the Canton Artists Guild, the Gallery has offered artists and those interested in the arts a varied program of cultural activities.
For artists, the Gallery on the Green is a place to exhibit and sell work. For the public, it is unique atmosphere to appreciate and
acquire fine art.
The Guild was created by and for artists and their supporters as a nonprofit cultural organization. It is supported by artist and
patron dues, contributions, modest commissions on work sold, financial gifts, and fund-raising events. The Gallery on the Green consists
of three galleries, a lower and two upper, as well as an outdoor sculpture garden. A wide variety of exhibits in many media is featured
throughout the year.
Membership with the Canton Artists’ Guild is available in several forms: Juried artist members may join the cooperative as a volunteer
or non-volunteer. The Guild also offers a junior membership for artists under age 18.Senior memberships are also available. Non artists
may become members by making a tax deductible contribution.
The Board of Directors cordially invites you to become a member of the guild. The Board meets every second Thursday of the month throughout
the year to explore ways and means of improving the Gallery on the Green for the benefit of the community
