Congratulations to the award winners of the show and thanks to all the members who entered their works. It is a privilege to work with and get to know such talented artists.
Thanks to all the members who contributed their time and talent to making this a great show, to the Chairs of the Program committee, the members who donated to the raffle, created the program and award certificates, donated time and food to the hospitality tables, and in general shared their art and enthusiasm with their fellow artists.
I wish to personally thank and give credit to Emily Bett and Ruth Morrill who made my job easier by photographing the exhibition and provided the images to both the website and HAL blog.
Last but not least, a special thanks to our judge, artist Richard Carleton.
If anyone wishes to purchase a painting, please call: 203-776-9300.
HAL encourages other artists in the community to join our group.

- Name of the artist
- Title of the painting
- Date of the painting
- Present location
Here's the Story:
A fellow artist began painting this image in his youth, however, he never completed it. He worked from an original image that hung in his parents' home.
The original painting is long gone. His partially completed image was stored away for decades and was rediscovered after our youthful artist grew up and rediscovered painting in retirement.
The artist began working from memory but as luck would have it his painting instructor recognized the image at a tag sale and purchased it for him.
However, despite inquires he has not been able to identify the painting or anything about it.
Can any one help?

In the coming months HAL hopes to develop this blog into a unique site where paintings recognized as having artist merit in our SilverBells/GoldenBells Exhibitions can be posted.
- Members can post their comments about these paintings.
- Judge's can share their observations concerning their selection process.
- Artists can get to know the techniques used to create the work.
- It is hoped that this blog can develop into a forum to encourage the artistic process and provide additional camaraderie for HAL members.
