Our Services

"Cold streams rinse away the hours" is a line out of one of Rayomond Kwiatkoski's nature poems. Photographer, poet, and writer he is, and his soulful photographs will be on exhibit from July 5 to August 30 at the Douglas Library in Canaan. His theme for the show is "Rural Wealth", which captures the spirit of the places he has seen and photographed on long drives through some of Connecticut's small towns.
