Furnace – Art on Paper Archive is a destination for viewing contemporary art with a focus on works on paper. Located in a unique building in the center of Falls Village, a former post office and town hall, this edifice was a bank just prior to the town acquiring it in the early 1960s.
Furnace/Art on Paper Archive refers to the town’s history as an iron smelting center and references the energy used in the creative process. The clean white flat files in the gallery hold the “archive” of works on paper by gallery artists. Exhibitions of one-person, solo shows run throughout the spring, summer and fall.
Winter: Selections from the Flat File 2021, will showcase the growing number of artists with work in the archive. Framed and unframed works on paper will be arranged salon-style to experience the many diverse works and processes. The northwest corner of Connecticut and surrounding areas hold a treasure of artists, whose creative energy is the driving force and experience for art viewing.
