Community Room Exhibit in April - Helen Galick

Helen Galick is a native of Connecticut. She was born in Woodbury where the idyllic, rural landscape and the company of many artists provided her first inspiration and subject material. She now lives in Simsbury, where she paints and teaches in her home studio.

Helen received her BS and MA from CCSC including graduate work at Columbia and UCONN. She furthered her training in watercolor and oil painting through workshops and private study.

Helen taught art in the Canton Schools for many years. She is a member of the West Hartford Art League. Avon Arts, Connecticut Women Artists and The Connecticut Watercolor Society.

Helen Galick’s work ranges from realistic architectural renderings to soft tonal landscapes. The natural beauty of rural Connecticut provides her most consistent source of subject matter. Using a wide range of methods and mediums allows her to explore many paintings styles which she finds an appealing challenge.

Her paintings are exhibited in juried shows throughout New England.

Her works are part of permanent collections of:
