The Ridgefield Historical Society offers a unique opportunity to have silhouette portraits created for you and your family just in time for holiday giving. Each silhouette is cut entirely freehand, by eye not drawn or traced. All ages are welcome and the sitting time required is only five minutes. Extra copies can be cut along with the original silhouette. These make wonderful gifts for grandparents and are offered at one half the price of the original cut.
Each silhouette is cut from black paper and can be mounted on your choice of white or ivory card stock. Mattes and frames will also be available for purchase.
Pets can be silhouetted too. Schedule an appointment and bring your pet or a picture of the right profile.
Please arrive early for your appointment in order to make your selections. Subjects should wear attire that can be captured in the silhouette. Details will show, so include bows, ribbons, neckties, collars, lace trim, ponytails, baseball caps etc.
To schedule an appointment please call us at 203-438-5821.
