Artist Glo Sessions to sign calendars on Sunday

A press release from the New England Carousel Museum:

Glo Sessions Limited Edition Calendar Signing
November 30, 2008
2:00 PM-5:00 PM

A special limited edition 2009 calendar has been created by the New England Carousel Museum to honor Glo Sessions, a beloved Connecticut artist of international reputation. Please join Glo at the New England Carousel Museum on Sunday, November 30, 2008, for a special calendar signing. The calendar signing will coincide with the Museum’s annual art contest for children awards ceremony and its annual Santa Sunday holiday celebration. Admission is free to the Museum between 2:00 and 5:00 PM.

Glo Sessions' work is on display in universities, museums, corporate offices and in many private collections throughout New England and across the globe. Her prints and paintings have been included in juried and invitational shows from Washington, D.C. to Maine. She has been awarded more than forty prizes since 1975. Her work has been showcased in the Glo Sessions Gallery, located in the Carousel Museum building, in Bristol, Connecticut, since 2000.

The calendar features a wide and varied selection of beautiful paintings and prints, including popular selections such as Snowy Boulevard, a silk screen print of the beautiful Memorial Boulevard in downtown Bristol, Westwood Wildflowers, Down Willis Street, and the Last of Downtown Bristol.

Glo Sessions is a member of the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts, the Connecticut Watercolor Society, the Connecticut Women Artists, Inc., the Boston Printmakers, and the American Watercolor Society. She is known for her painting and print making, and her versatility and love of painting people, scenes of Bristol and spectacular still life with flowers are the hallmark of her work.

Glo became a Board member of the Carousel Museum upon its formation as a non-profit, educational organization in Bristol in 1991. She was an active Board member for many years and has remained a friend of the Museum to this day. The Carousel Museum purchased the building in which it currently resides in 1999, and immediately began an extensive expansion project. The Museum created two fine arts galleries, one of which became a permanent gallery dedicated to work by Glo Sessions.

In 2007, the Carousel Museum created a new Award for Bristol entitled ACE. The Art, Culture and Entertainment award was created to honor an individual(s) or organization(s) who have contributed to the art, culture and entertainment in the greater Bristol community. Glo Sessions, along with Carlyle "Hap" Barnes, became the first recipients of the award.

The Glo Sessions limited edition calendar is on sale at the Carousel Museum or by mail. The price of one calendar is $20, 6-10 calendars cost $18 each and 10 calendars or more cost $16.00. Orders of 10 calendars or more will be delivered in the Greater Bristol area.
