Silver Circle Gallery & Art Center

The Gallery was established in 2008 as a venue to represent local and regional visual artists and to enhance the abundant creative network in Northeastern Connecticut. It has been a dynamic place for artists at all career levels to convene, connect, share, inspire and enrich the community.

Now celebrating five years, Silver Circle has been a catalyst for an arts renaissance in downtown Putnam through its involvement in community events and its persistent efforts to bring arts appreciation and awareness to the region.

Silver Circle is a professional launching pad for local artists and shows work from award-winning career artists as well. The art center fosters art appreciation through rotating exhibits, gallery talks, and arts education. The main gallery offers rotating individual and group exhibits, and the alternate gallery space has a wide variety of quality contemporary fine art in a broad price range, as well as sculpture, art glass, and assemblage. There is a boutique area with handcrafted jewelry, textiles, pottery, and home goods by local and regional artisans. The adjacent "Art Alley" is a display space for a rotating assortment of local emerging artists and students.

In addition, Silver Circle encourages the public to explore their personal creativity by offering year-round workshops and classes for children, teens, and adults.  Classes are offered in a variety of mediums for all ages and. The outreach program hosts seasonal community art projects as well.

One of owner/director Carly Martin’s goals was to make art accessible and relatable to all and to help others realize its value.
