A new exhibit in the Silvermine Room at the New Canaan Historical Society features works by Germain Green Glidden -- or "G3" as he was affectionately called by friends -- who was a painter, muralist, cartoonist and a national squash racquets champion.

Glidden, who was born in 1914 and died in 1999, was also the founder and chairman of the board of the National Art Museum of Sport in Indianapolis. Many of his works are on display in the Silvermine Room at the historical society, 13 Oenoke Ridge.

The exhibit runs until Feb. 3. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
