Visit Regional Art Galleries During a Stamford Stay at The Lloyd
You’re spoiled for choices when it comes to art galleries and dealers in convenient day-tripping proximity of your boutique Stamford accommodations with us.
Five galleries, for example, come incorporated into the Silvermine Arts Center (1037 Silvermine Rd, New Canaan, CT), which also includes an art school and the Silvermine Guild of Artists—a historic collective reflecting the Silvermine area’s roots as an artist colony dating back to the early 20th century.
Greenwich includes a host of top-quality, nationally known galleries. They include the C. Parker Gallery (409 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich, CT), boasting works by everyone from Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenburg to Holly Manneck and Susanne Scarborough. Isabella Garrucho of Art Service International fame and her son Alex Trimper established Isabella Garrucho (40 West Putnam Ave, Greenwich, CT), which represents more than 50 artists from around the world.
Then there’s the Samuel Owen Gallery (382 Greenwich Ave, Greenwich, CT), which also maintains locations on Nantucket as well as down in Palm Beach, Florida. Opened in 2004, the gallery showcases a rich roster of artists and some exceptional hand-crafted frames.
Antiquing Around Stamford
Meanwhile, if you’re seeking the perfect vintage furnishing for back home or a few new collector’s treasures, consider the many fine antique emporia at your fingertips as a Lloyd guest. The Antique And Artisan Gallery (69 Jefferson St, Stamford, CT), for example, tempts with a trove of items under the expert curation of owners Bruce Wylie and Mari Ann Maher, both with deep connections to the New York City antiques industry.
Some 26,000 square feet and a full four stories of pieces hailing from the 17th to 20th centuries await you at Hamptons Antique Galleries (441 Canal St, Stamford, CT), established in 2005 by Jacqueline Graber and Micahel Rufino. At The Collective (50 John St, Stamford, CT), you’ll find a similarly top-tier selection.
