On Sunday, April 13th, Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan held the opening reception and awards ceremony for the 24th Annual Juried Student Exhibition with a huge crowd of artists, family, and friends attending. The galleries are filled with exceptional artwork in all media created by students ages 5 and up. This year’s juror was William Jones, Professor of Art, Painting and Drawing, Eastern Connecticut State University. The exhibition will be on view through May 21st, and is a wonderful opportunity to view the wide range of styles and media and the creative energy that is generated by the student body. The exhibition was scheduled earlier than usual this year to coincide with the Silvermine School of Art 90th Anniversary Fundraiser, which will take place May 3rd. This year’s gala celebrates the School of Art’s 90 years of excellence, and we will honor ten faculty members who have been teaching for twenty years or more.
