Environmental Art Gallery

 “To translate knowledge and information into experience: that is the function of literature and art.”           – Joseph Campbell


Double Echo, Chris Drury

  The Environmental Art Gallery will display original works of art for sale and appreciation throughout the building. Focusing on art that promotes the environmental movement, there will be permanent site work exhibits both indoor and outdoor. Original prints of conceptual drawings from around the world, video displays, with occasional live feeds of projects in the works, as well as recycled art, art featuring nature, if it combines art and nature you will find it here. A portion of the building will be set aside as a studio where artist can create there original works and speak with visitors. Art will also be available for display and purchase online through The BIOS Center website.

LOCATIONS: We are working to regain control of our property on Railroad Street in New Milford from the investor.  Our office is currently located at 147 Elm Street in Thomaston. We plan to open galleries in both locations.  The Environmental Art Gallery will be located though out the hallways and inside the Cafe & Bar of the New Milford location.

More About The Thomaston Location

A 44 mile Greenway is slated to go right past our front door.

“Streetscape enhancements along Elm Street in Thomaston will improve connections between the future Naugatuck River Greenway and the Clock Walk.”  The Regional Naugatuck River Greenway Routing Study report recommends routing for the Naugatuck River Greenway (NRG) trail through the Town of Thomaston, Connecticut. The routing is the product of a year-long effort to study, analyze and develop routing recommendations for a Naugatuck River Greenway trail along the Naugatuck River in Western Connecticut. As part of this project, greenway routing reports were also created for Watertown, Naugatuck, and Beacon Falls. A routing report was also created for Waterbury, as part of a separate process. The overall goal of these reports is to identify a route for a 22-mile long regional greenway trail in the Central Naugatuck Valley Region. It is envisioned that this greenway will ultimately extend 44 miles from Torrington in the north to Derby in the south.   Learn More@ Regional Naugatuck River Greenway Routing Study

More about Environmental Art

The term Environmental Art is used in two different senses. The term can be used generally to refer to art dealing with ecological issues and/or the natural, such as the formal, the political, the historical, or the social context.

It is possible to trace the growth of environmental art as a ‘movement’, beginning in the late 1960s or the 1970s. In its early phases it was most associated with sculpture — especially Site-specific art, Land art and Arte povera — having arisen out of mounting criticism of traditional sculptural forms and practices which were increasingly seen as outmoded and potentially out of harmony with the natural environment. The category now encompasses many media.

Recently Sustainable art has emerged as an alternative term to environmental or green art, in recognition of the challenges that sustainability brings for contemporary art as a whole. This definition was provided by Wikipedia the online encyclopedia.
