WASHINGTON — A new collection of landscape paintings by Connecticut artist Frank Metz will be on display at Washington’s Gunn Memorial Library Stairwell Gallery through July 20. There will be a reception for the artist on Saturday, June 15 from 12 noon to 2 p.m.

Working in both oil and watercolor, Metz has been painting landscapes for over 60 years. During that time, his award-winning work has been the subject of several solo shows and his paintings have been acquired by over a dozen corporate collections.

Much of Metz’s inspiration comes from the coastlines of England, Scotland, Maine, Long Island, and Connecticut where he has lived in Litchfield County for forty years. His themes are the water’s edge, shallows, pools, sand, rocks, and especially the sky. In a typical Metz landscape, skies are as full of life and color as the land below.

Gunn Memorial Library is located at 5 Wykeham Road at the juncture of Route 47 opposite the Green in Washington. Library hours may be found at www.gunnlibrary.org. For more information call 860-868-7586 or email the library circulation desk, gunncirc@biblio.org.
