GUILFORD – Thirteen original works of local artist Dan Harrington will be on display through the end of December in the community room at the Sidney Memorial Public Library, 8 River St., as the lifelong Guilford resident prepares to open his own studio in the coming months.
According to the artist, painting commissions, prints of his work, professional wedding and portrait photography, professional photo printing, photo restoration and alterations, professional framing and, possibly, art instruction will all be available at the proposed studio.
Harrington, who’s had a love for drawing, and art in general for as long as he can remember, said it was a chance discovery at his grandmother’s funeral which cemented his passion for the arts.
“Growing up, I became very interested in art but I had no real direction or guidance,” stated the 33-year-old Harrington. “The moment when everything clicked for me was when I saw my first Daniel K. Tennant painting.”
