The Sharon Historical Society & Museum Announces

The Art of TOMAS SAVRDA

Sharon, CT: The Sharon Historical Society & Museum is pleased to announce the opening of the next exhibit in Gallery SHS, works by the Kent artist TOMAS SAVRDA, to be held at the Sharon Historical Society & Museum Art Gallery from March 16 until May 10.   The public is invited to attend the artists’ opening reception on Saturday, March 16, from 5-7PM.

Tomas is known for creations that are somehow charming and whimsical, but also distinctly edgy and thought-provoking. Constructed from wood, tin, stone, and found objects, his masks, mini stage scenes, and free-standing kinetic sculptures look like they have tumbled from some nineteenth century cabinet of forgotten toys. Some are meditations on memory, innocence and isolation; others are traditional folk stories filtered through dreams. They are also beautiful. Tomas was born in Czechoslovakia, and worked as a graphic designer in Prague and the United States before focusing full time on his art. A portion of all purchase proceeds will support the Sharon Historical Society & Museum’s mission.

Gallery SHS is located in the Sharon Historical Society & Museum at 18 Main Street in Sharon, CT.  Museum hours are Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 4:00 PM, Saturday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM and by appointment.  For more information and directions to Gallery SHS, call (860) 364-5688.   For additional information about the Sharon Historical Society & Museum, visit www.sharonhist.org.
