In the exhibition Lives and Landscapes: Art from the Permanent Collection of Wilton Historical Society, rarely seen work captures something of the personality of the town through the faces and places depicted. Portraits of some of the members of Wilton’s first families – Lamberts, Beldens, and Grummans — as well as more distant relatives of those families are featured.
Town landmarks, such as the 1790 Wilton Congregational Church painted in an impressionistic style en plein air by Robert Emmett Owen and the 1726 Lambert House by H.G. Thompson are beautifully depicted.
Works by Ralph Earl; Gilbert Stuart Newton; Richard Daggy; and sculptor A. Phimister Proctor are also featured.
