Art Gallery

This section of the Historical Society of Easton, Connecticut website features drawings, paintings, and artistic photography created by the members of The Society and our neighbors here in Easton. The works of art shown here depict some of the historic sites and sights of Easton. Some were created at the specific request of The Society to highlight a particular historic site or building and many have been featured at Society events such as the Autumn 2011 Wine Tasting and Art Show held at The Bradley-Hubbell House.

In most cases, alongside the artwork you will find the artist’s name and contact information and a link to the artist’s own website featuring all or most of his or her works. Please visit these wonderful websites and support our local artists by adding some of their remarkable works to your collection

At this time there is also one historic piece of art,  the first one below, an 1836 Woodcut by John Warner Barber showing the Easton Congregational Church and Staples Free Academy.
