Students Showcase Work at Guilford Art Center Gallery Exhibition-February 2nd -18th
Posted on January 16th, 2018

Guilford, CT — New creations by adult students at Guilford Art Center will be featured in the Student Exhibition in the Center’s gallery, February 2-18, 2018. The show will highlight recent work in all media by adult students who have taken classes or workshops at GAC in the past two years.
 
“This show is a great opportunity for The Center to showcase to the public the wonderful works our students have created in our classes,” says Executive Director Maureen Belden. “There should be paintings and drawings, pottery, weaving, blacksmithing, jewelry, glass and more—works that can be inspiring to other community members.”
 
The Student Exhibition opens on Friday, February 2, with a reception from 5-7. Gallery hours are Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm and Sunday 12-4pm. The exhibition and the opening reception are free and open to the public.

About Guilford Art Center

The Guilford Art Center is a non-profit school, shop and gallery established to nurture and support excellence in the arts.  Through classes for adults and children, gallery programs, a shop of contemporary crafts, and special events, the Center fulfills its mission to provide opportunities for the public to participate in the arts, to experience their cultural and historical diversity, and to appreciate the process and product of creative work.  Founded in 1967 (as the Guilford Handcraft Center), the Center evolved from the first Handcraft Expo, held on the Guilford Green in 1957.   It currently serves over 2,000 students in classes, presents juried and invitational exhibits of art in the Center’s gallery and operates a shop of fine, handmade American crafts year-round.  The Center also presents the Craft Expo, held on the Guilford Green each year in July, that features works by more than 180 of the country’s most distinguished artisans and is a much-anticipated annual event for the shoreline community.
