History – The Churchill name goes back many generations in Connecticut with several
Churchills being founding fathers of the State. Charles David Churchill 1900-1961 was my
grandfather. An extraordinary musician and artist in his own right. He passed on his love
of the arts to many.
The Churchill Gallery was founded in 1972 by Virginia Wentworth Barnes 1922-2015. The
gallery was known for showcasing the works of exceptional artists for almost forty years.
Virginia was an extraordinary lady of grace and character.
In June of 2006, The Churchill Gallery entered the digital online world with its first website,
supporting the brick-and-mortar gallery. Today the physical gallery is
gone but our digital The Churchill Gallery lives on, still concentrating on showcasing gifted
artists and local photographers with a desire to capture the natural beauty that is
all around us and sharing it with many.
We sincerely hope that you will visit our gallery often, and from time to time bring some of
what catches your eye into your home.
