Maple and Main Gallery Second Annual Juried Show

January 26 to April 2, 2017


Maple and Main is launching its second annual juried show. The gallery is housed on two floors in an iconic late 1700's building in Chester’s downtown and is now in its sixth year of business showing the work of Connecticut artists.

The show will be hung in the entire lower level of the gallery and will be on view from January 25 through April 2, 2017. Maple and Main will promote the show in online and print media, in repeated email blasts to 6800 plus recipients; in 1000 postcards sent to targeted guests. The show will be featured on our website and Facebook page and with signage.

There will be an opening reception with wine, food and chocolates. The winner of the first place award will be able to have a show in our popular Stone Gallery during a month of their choosing in 2018. It can be a solo show or you can choose to share the gallery with fellow artists. Maple and Main will provide staff and publicity.
