Introducing the Flinn

Flinn Gallery Space inside Greenwich Library

Welcome to the Flinn Gallery!
According to their Website and an article in Greenwich Free Press (March 11, 2014), the Flinn Gallery is free and open to the public.  It is a volunteer-run and education-oriented exhibition space that presents art in all mediums from a range of periods, visions and techniques.
The exhibits feature local, national and international artists selected from submissions by the artists themselves and those that are solicited by the Gallery Committee.  The committee, comprised of over 50 volunteers, curates, mounts and staffs six (6) exhibitions a year from September through June. Each exhibition features an opening reception and related events. The Gallery attracts close to 10,000 visitors annually. Artwork is for sale and commissions help support the community programs of the Friends of Greenwich Library.
The gallery was established by a group of artists in 1928 in the Greenwich Library, then located on Greenwich Avenue.  When the library moved in 1960 to its present site at 101 West Putnam Avenue, the gallery relocated with it, and when the library was expanded and remodeled in the late 1990’s, the gallery space was also remodeled and renamed to honor its major benefactors, Stephanie and Lawrence Flinn of Greenwich.
