The top two winners will be awarded the prize of a First Impressions Art Studio Kit for Kids at the library’s Medieval Faire on Aug. 22. Submissions must be completed at home and turned in by the library closing at 8 p.m. Aug. 13. Children may use any medium to color the logo. Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road. 


Full Tilt exhibit at Silvermine Arts Center: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Bob Gregson’s "Full Tilt," begs the question of being off-kilter or askew. The walls of the Vassos Gallery are filled with plywood constructions, all or parts of which are tilted, which visually energizes the space. The floor space is filled with maquettes for sculptures with panels that lean to the side. Although Gregson's pieces are thoughtfully planned and solidly geometric, he undermines his works with panels that can be rotated and mirrors that extend the edge of the picture plane. This is key to the creative tension. He further subverts his work by teasing the viewer into actively playing with the work by attracting them with color to turn panels or play hide and seek through the holes in his sculpture. Silvermine Art Gallery, 1037 Silvermine Road, New Canaan.
