Each month a local artist will be displaying their artwork in the front windows of our Putnam office. We are thrilled to showcase these artists and hope that you will stop by to see their work. If you are interested in purchasing any of the displayed artwork, please contact the artist directly.
February Artist, Scott Ross:
Scott Ross creates paintings, photographs, and digitally manipulated images. His artwork is included in private collections around the world and has been exhibited in galleries in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York City. His studio is located in Pomfret, CT, where he lives with his wife, daughter, and dog.
As a self-taught artist with a background in cognitive psychology, my creative approach explores the relationship between perception and emotion. Looking at art naturally and automatically initiates a process of interpretation as the mind attempts to identify, analyze, and make sense of what the eyes are seeing. I am particularly fascinated by how easily this involuntary process can become more complicated when visual stimuli are unfamiliar, vague, or abstract. In general, my work is about the nature of seeing and how visual images can evoke emotional / visceral responses, even when we don’t fully recognize or understand what we’re perceiving.

March Artist, Louise Pigott
Louise Pigott’s artistic journey began in 2010 after realizing she had the gift of artistry passed on to her through her grandfather.
Louise is a mostly self-taught artist, whose natural ability is to creatively apply color and texture to canvas. Through the connected world of the internet, Louise has been inspired and supported through a global network of artists. Thankfully, today’s technological advances make it possible to bring the world of art into our living rooms.
Louise’s medium of choice is acrylic with a pallet knife. She loves to paint landscapes and things that make her happy with an angel in every painting.
Louise also draws inspiration from personal experiences.
“My Mother was one of my biggest supporters who encouraged me to follow my dreams and walk in the footsteps of my grandfather, her dad. After the passing of my mother, life has taught me to live life to the fullest and follow your heart and passions.
On the day of her passing, the very last words my mother spoke were, “my angels are here”. That was a very emotional yet comforting time to know that her angels came for her. In memory of my mother and the Angels who came for her I hide an Angel in every one of my paintings.
Don’t ask me where the angel is, I won’t tell you. You’ll have to find it yourself!” For more information or to view more artwork please go to www.louisepigottart.com
