"Harvest Time" has arrived just in time. The exhibit, by artist Rosemary Connor, opens Thursday at New Milford's historic 30 Bridge Street building. Connor and the building's owners, Jack and John Farley, are expected to be on hand at the opening reception. The Farleys have preserved 30 Bridge Street's character while converting it into a first-class professional building. The artist's works include oils and watercolors, representing the harmony and beauty in nature. "Autumn is the season of harvest, the fruition of all growth of spring and summer," says Connor. "It's the season of abundance. We receive benefits of the seeds we have sown in our work projects, relationships and nature's produce before winter's rest." Connor adds that autumn is "when brilliant colors give the land a special glow." Her hope is that those who attend the show will find paintings that speak to them of warmth and comfort. Connor's studio is in New Milford, where she finds much of her inspiration. She studied with master painter Woldemar Neufeld for 11 years before attending Pratt Institute, where she earned a BFA and a Pratt Master's Fellowship Award. Connor, a native of New Milford, has also studied in Italy. Her paintings are in many private and public collections in the United States, as well as in South America, England, and other places. Connor's works are in the permanent collections of the New Britain Museum of Art, the New Milford Historical Society, the Springfield Museum of Art, and the National Arts Club, among others.
