"Jazz guitarist Gerry Beaudoin has carved out a career as a leader, arranger and guitarist.  Called “One of New England’s premier jazz guitarists” by Just Jazz Guitar Magazine, Gerry has appeared on over twenty recordings in his career since his first national release in 1990. His award winning group the Boston Jazz Ensemble (which featured percussion legend Alan Dawson on drums and vibes, alto saxophonist Fred Lipsius from the seminal jazz-rock group Blood Sweat and Tears, and Dick Johnson who leads the Artie Shaw Band on clarinet) received rave reviews and critical acclaim."

The Washington Art Association Celebrates Sculpture

The Washington Art Association in collaboration with the Washington Park Foundation is taking the opportunity to introduce our community to some of the extraordinary sculptors in and around Litchfield county.
"Sculpture for the Landscape", with works by Michael Steiner and Mark Mennin will open with exhibitions and artists' receptions at the Washington Art Association and at One Green Hill Rd on August 30th, from 4-6pm, and will run through September 27th, 2014.

Michael Steiner and Mark Mennin are two sculptors who have had international reputations and have exhibited work frequently both in the U.S. and abroad. They have both categorically refused to participate in group exhibitions in recent years but have agreed to exhibit their work in Washington, CT as a way to engage our community to think about sculpture. By placing some of their works together they hope to encourage some interesting dialogues about form, materials and functions.
