Bruce Ando is a local furniture maker and natural artist who works with what nature has created and turns it into striking, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. In conjunction with the recent Connecticut Tree Festival, the Gilbert & Bennett (G&B) Cultural Center at 49 New St. is currently exhibiting Bruce’s work.

Paintings, photographs, and mixed-media work featuring trees are also on display. All pieces are for sale. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.
