The Silvermine Arts Center has announced that distinguished faculty members from the Silvermine School of Art will show new work in the annual Faculty Exhibition, set to open April 17 in New Canaan.
The showcase of multiple styles and disciplines will feature artists from throughout the region. Among the Connecticut-based artists with work in the 2016 exhibition are Lisa Arnold of Branford; Andrew Davis of Bridgeport; Tom Brenner and Enid Hatton of Fairfield; Nomi Silverman and Dmitri Wright of Greenwich; Marta Kot of Milford; C.J. Guerin of New Canaan; David Ferreira of New Haven; Jon Puzzuoli of Norwalk; Dorie Petrochko of Oxford; Janice Mauro of Redding; Claire Watson Garcia of Ridgefield; Carey Parks Schwartz of Stamford; Bruce Dunbar and Shizue Pleasanton of Stratford; Martha Bloom, Wendy MacCordy, Karen Siegel and Steven Parton of Westport; David Dunlop, Viola Galetta, Nash Hyon, Natasha Karpinskaia and Nancy McTague-Stock of Wilton. Artists also include New York-based faculty members Stephanie Maddalena of Haverstraw, Gary Speziale of Middle Village, Inez Andrucyk of Mohegan Lake and Alex MacFarlane of South Salem and, from Concord, N.H., Joy Raskin.
The School of Art was founded in 1924 and has continued to draw faculty members who are considered masters in their disciplines. In addition to offering the chance to view the new works, the exhibition also serves as an introduction to the faculty and courses offered at Silvermine.
An opening reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. April 17, with the show continuing through May 13.
Silvermine is at 1037 Silvermine Road.
(And in a save-the date note, the Silvermine Arts Center has just announced its inaugural Living Arts Award Benefit will be held May 21 at Grace Farms. The celebration will honor New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast and lifetime Guild members Constance Kiermaier and Liana Moonie).
