Mixing it Up With Beauty and Style at the Rose Algrant Art Show

Little Gems

The Rose Algrant Art Show started as a sort of salon, with works on show by Algrant and her friends. James Thurber, for example, was an early participant and FOA, or Friend of Algrant.

It has grown into an exhibit and sale of work by Cornwall, Conn., artists, including some who are beloved here and famous well beyond the confines of Litchfield County.

Although Algrant left this world in 1992, her legacy lives on in the annual show and sale, which includes work in a wide variety of media, from fabric to wood to ceramics to canvas and photography.

A highlight of each year’s sale is the chance to purchase (at an attainaable price) a work by Robert Andrew Parker, a Litchfield County treasure. His work is included this year, as are works by famed architect Tim Prentice, Dave Colbert, Lazlo Gyorsok, Nancy Daubenspeck and more.

For the full list of information on the show and its participating artists, go to www.rosealgrantartshow.org.


The 2022 Rose Algrant Art Show will be at Cornwall Consolidated School on Friday, Aug. 5, from 2 to 5 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 6, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 7, from 10 a.m. to noon.
