Gallery and Shop Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 9:30am to 5:00pm
Greetings!

We are so thrilled to be celebrating our 35th anniversary as Darien's premier fine art gallery, custom frame shop and art restoration studio. Since 1984, we have spotted and nurtured the careers of artists from along the Eastern Seaboard, with a lively schedule of art exhibits that rotate monthly. This photo is of our son, Shane and Tom, present day and back on opening day 1984!

In appreciation of our clients' patronage throughout the years, we will be holding a drawing for a $350 gift certificate to Geary Gallery or Accent Picture Framing and Accent Restoration. Any purchase a customer makes throughout the month of July qualifies that customer to be entered into the drawing. A winner will be randomly selected on August 6, 2019.

And last but not least, during this special month, we present “ Brilliant Summerscapes ,” a vibrant retrospective of the late plein air watercolorist, William Ternes (1933-2014). His exhibit runs through July 31. It's a must see!

We hope to see you at the gallery during this special month!

Sincerely,

Anne & Tom Geary

William Ternes was a watercolor and oil painter known for his vibrant use of color in the natural world where he painted plein air for most of his life. Bill was born in Salem, MA, and attended the University of Wisconsin, graduating with a degree in art education. Upon graduation, he enlisted in the Navy as an officer where he served in the Pacific. He went on to receive his MBA at Columbia University and after working as a financial services executive in a number of institutions, he left the world of finance to pursue his passion as an artist. 

Bill was a master member of the Copley Society of Boston, emeritus member of The Guild of Boston Artists, former president of the New England Watercolor Society, and a signature member of the American Watercolor Society. His works were exhibited in numerous exhibitions including Allied Artists, Audubon Artists, The National Arts Club and the Salmagundi Club of NYC. His work can be found in many corporate and private collections.

Bill enjoyed sharing his knowledge with many dedicated students around the world. For over thirty years he led workshops on Martha’s Vineyard every June and September and in January at Harbour Island in the Bahamas. Many devoted students studied in his other workshops in international destinations including Lyford Cay (Bahamas), Spain, France and Ireland.

The William Ternes exhibit runs through July 31 and his paintings are available for acquisition. All are welcome and admission is free. To view some of his work, visit our online gallery . Click here to read the full press release.
