The annual Great Hollow Juried Painting and Photography Show returns for its 5th year and is back in-person!  Sponsored by the Great Hollow Photographers Club, this year’s show features over 100 selected works of art by 40 different artists that depict beautiful scenes of nature within and near the preserve. The show is a fundraiser for Great Hollow, with 25% of all sales going to support Great Hollow’s environmental education, research, and conservation initiatives.  The in-person show will begin with a reception on Friday, May 20, from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, and be open for viewings and sales from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday, May 21-22, in the Gate House Barn.  The Show will also be online for sales from May 20 – June 30, 2022,


At the opening reception on Friday May 20th from 6:30 – 8:30, the winners and honorable mentions for paintings and photography will be announced and light refreshments will be served.   Jurors for the artwork are Sylvia Hierro for painting and Neil Zobler for photography. Sylvia Hierro is a Plein Air and collage painter who loves color, emotion and movement.  She has taught art both on the elementary and high school levels and was the Fine Arts Chair for twenty-three years at Canterbury School in New Milford, CT.  Neil Zobler is a passionate photographer who loves landscapes, street, and environmental portraits with strong, saturated colors which are visually exciting.  Neil has received numerous awards and honorable mentions for his photographs over the years and was the Judges Chair for Candlewood Camera Club for 5 years.  Prizes for first, second and third place for both painting and photography will be donations from local businesses. 

New this year will be a display of children’s artwork from previous camps and special programs.  “The children have so much creativity when it comes to their love of nature and I’m delighted to have some of their artwork included this year”  said Tara Ewers, Education Coordinator & Camp Director for Great Hollow.
