“People & Places” Gallery Show
featuring the artwork of Cindy & Ron Blanchard
at the Crescent Gallery,
158 Main St., Thomaston
Cindy has always had a passion for creating portraits. "Every face is so different and lends a new opportunity to create a piece of artwork that is unique."
Born and raised in Connecticut, it was not until retiring and moving to SC in 2003 that she had time to devote to her art and won several awards for her work. Moving back to Connecticut in 2016 she enjoys being a part of The Ten-2-One Artists group in Thomaston and the Watertown Art League.
Basically working in pastels she strives to create a soft and peaceful mood to her commissioned portraits. Cindy will paint your pet, grandchild, or a likeness of your preferred actor or actress from your favorite photograph in black and white, color, or sepia.
Ron’s journey in photography went from crime scene photography to weddings & portraits to wildlife & nature then fine art photography over the past 45 plus years and PHOTOGRAPHY IS HIS PASSION!
He is both a South Carolina and Connecticut Master Naturalist, therefore his work leans more towards birds, animals & natural scenes but he is also known to create abstract & long exposure fine art work. Ron has been recognized for his images in Art competitions and his work is in private collections throughout the U.S., and exhibited in Galleries in the South & Northeast. His most recent interest is in teaching Artography, creating fine art with mobile devices.
Ron is Honored to be a member of the Ten-2-One Artists and is also the President of Litchfield Hills Camera Club and Board member of Arts Escape, Inc.
