Robichaud/Trites Benefit

Local artist Abigail Robichaud presents a show of miscellaneous work to benefit her family in a time of need. David Trites, Abigail’s stepfather, leaves behind her mother Pam, and two children, Sullivan (2), and Michael (8 weeks) after a fatal motorcycle accident last month. The show will serve as a fundraiser for the family to cover future expenses for the children and wife of David. David was a decorated Veteran who served in Afghanistan. Abigail Robichaud is 19 years old, alumni of Woodstock Academy, and currently studying her second year at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston to pursue photography.











The benefit will continue through the month of June….visit the gallery at 171 Providence Street Putnam CT, open daily 10 am to 6pm.



Also available are sign ups for a one-hour photographed portrait session for $50.00. This is a great opportunity for upcoming seniors who need senior photos, or a summer shoot for your family or pets.  Please contact Laura at the Gallery for more information.

An awesome time had by all at the Gallery!

Thursday’s event was a resounding success…..members of our local community as well as many people from other areas of New England and even Milwaukee came out to enjoy our ARTISTS SHOW!!!! Music by King Courteen was wonderful, they flew in around 2pm and after exploring the town of Putnam….took the stage and entertained the crowd.
Palo Coleman demonstrated the Japanese Art of bamboo joinery and imparted so many facts about the extremely versatile bamboo that is currently becoming one of the big players in the building arenas. His skills were made even more impressive as he was only able to really utilize one hand, due to an injury that has caused him to have a cast!! He was joined by his lovely assistant DEEK Derek Diedricksen….who was a major organizer of the event.
DEEK Derek Diedricksen was the one degree of separation that gathered the ARTISTS who gathered to have a MEET & GREET with the public. DEEK and Laura were interviewed by the incredibly sweet and ART savvy Mary Oliver from Windham Arts Council last week for their Fun, Festivals & Flair show on WILI.

Local ARTIST Jonathan Fritz was painting a new creation in front of his wall at the Gallery, answering the questions of the people gathered. Jonathan is known for his acrylic designs and murals, many found in NYC.
The crowd was entertained and inspired by the documentary shown, REUSE, because you can’t recycle the planet. Directed by Alex Eaves. The powerful film addresses the waste of resources and how recycling is not the only answer for our issues within the world!
Those who attended were treated to delicious gluten and dairy free fare from Two Little Buns by Jessica Sullivan. From pizza to crackers….all were delightful and healthy! Visit their website:
Local Artists who also attended the event included: Red’s Whimsy
Heather Wiik of
Steve Veilleux
WINY owners Karen and Gary Osbrey documented the event….and showed their love of the ARTS and PUTNAM, many thanks to them for the support! !!!
Please like and SHARE this post….and get people talking about and visiting our Gallery & Market!!!!! Thank you for the support!!!!!
