The Gallery @the SHS of the Sharon Historical Society & Museum presents "Have a Seat," a juried exhibition and sale of artworks by local artists.

Artists were invited to submit works in any medium (e.g. Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Pastel, Ink, Graphite, Drawing, Print, Mixed Media, Sculpture, Assemblage, Fabric, Stone, Clay, Metal) that respond to, and reflect the artist's interpretation of the themes of chairs, sitting or seating.

Cash prizes will be awarded to three works. In addition, guests who attend the show's opening night will have the opportunity to select their favorite work of art which will receive the "SHS Crowd Pleaser" award.

The show will be presented in conjunction with an exhibition of the museum's collection of antique chairs from various times and sources in Sharon's history.

Both exhibits run from November 4 through December 15. The Gallery @the SHS is located at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum, 18 Main Street, Route 41, Sharon, CT. The gallery and museum are open Wednesday through Friday from 12-4, Saturday 10-2 and by appointment. For more information and directions to The Gallery @the SHS, call (860) 364-5688.
