Visiting Silver Circle Studio And Gallery, Downtown Putnam, CT

The Silver Circle Studio And Gallery Is Packed With Vibrant Art, Gifts, Jewelry

Silver Circle Studio and Gallery lights up Main Street in Downtown, Putnam, CT with a badly needed bolt of color, excitement and artistic and creative flair. The town had been struggling for years and now observers are happily witnessing a re-birth with boutiques, galleries, cafes and entertainment.

Downtown Putnam Is Changing For The Better

The downtown area is not yet quite there yet but it has begun to make enormous progress in this direction. For years my pull to Putnam was for antiquing with a formerly very solid and exciting antique district covering several blocks. But now, only a few antique and vintage shops remain with the main store being The Antique Marketplace. But new and terrific things are happening to Downtown Putnam and you will like the energy that is in the air.

The Silver Circle Gallery Is Bringing Creative Energy To Putnam

The surprise for me during my recent visit to the area, and I mean surprise, was parking my car opposite "The Silver Circle" owned by Carly Martin a devoted supporter of local community arts.
Once inside the gallery I was totally impressed with a beautifully designed retail shop, gallery space and area for workshops and classes for all ages.

Handcrafted Upscale Art And Gifts

Inside The Silver Circle Studio and Gallery you will find handcrafted jewelry, paintings, glassware, pottery, gifts, textiles and more.

At the time of my visit a few weeks ago, there was a very engaging mixed media collage show in the front gallery which featured works from regional artists (see photos ). Silver Circle hosts rotating exhibits and receptions every 4-6 weeks.
