WILTON, Conn. Fourteen artists will be featured in Wilton Librarys newest exhibit, Words Matter, which begins with a reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The artists, from the Wilson Avenue Loft Artists group, come from towns across Fairfield County, including Wilton, New Canaan, Westport, Ridgefield, Rowayton and Darien.
Each artist will bring her own unique interpretation of the theme to the exhibit. While many works will include words or letter forms, others are influenced by poetry or prose. The participating artists work in various media, including oils and acrylics, drawings, collages, printmaking and mixed media, said Lori Glavin, one of the artists and one of the Wilson Avenue Loft Artists founders.
Glavin and co-founder Britt Blair formed Wilson Avenue Loft Artists in early 2007 and worked with a team of architects, lawyers and staff to create a space for artists to work.
We are very proud to be part of a thriving Norwalk arts scene, Glavin said. Our members are accomplished professional artists who in addition to making art, also contribute to the community as educators, arts advocates and volunteers.
The artists include:
Darien: Britt Bair, Lori Glavin, Dana Goodfellow, Mary Manning, Pamela Lindberg, Vicki French Smith and Diane Weeks
New Canaan: Susan Cutler Tremaine
Ridgefield: Randi Jane Davis and Elise Mills
Rowayton: Hanneke Goedkoop
Westport: Claudia Mengel
Wilton: Nancy McTague-Stock and Ruth Ipe
The majority of the works will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Wilton Library. The exhibition continues through June 29.
