Guilford Art Center Exhibition “Flatfile” Features New Haven Artspace artists

An exhibition of contemporary New Haven-area artists to be on view in The Gallery at Guilford Art Center, June 23-July 30, 2023. For your consideration: Artists from the Artspace New Haven Flatfile will include works in a range of media by D. Douglass, Austen Kim, Esthea Kim, Linda Lindroth, Jason Ting, Janet Warner, and Michael Zieff. An opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, June 23, 5-7pm, and is free and open to the community.

Founded by artists in 1987, Artspace focuses on community-building, education, and providing a platform to present the work of visual artists in New Haven. Its programs encourage experimentation and civic discourse while fostering an appreciation for the vital role artists play in improving the community. Like Guilford Art Center, it foregrounds art-making as a community benefit. The sharing of work in this exhibition connects both organizations and artists in the region.

The Flatfile has long been a permanent feature of Artspace. A compilation of works that fit in a file cabinet, it serves as a resource for curators and others. Artspace’s Visual Culture Producer, Gabriel Sacco, recently took a seemingly simple step by moving the Flatfile from the office into the galleries, so that the drawers become literal exhibition space, not just an archive. “The file stores work to protect it, not hide it,” says Sacco. “Flatfile is about the connections we make among artists, audiences, and our shared spaces.” Bringing these artists’ works to GAC and the Shoreline extends and strengthens those connections.

Works on view include paintings, drawings, mixed media and digital creations.

The GAC gallery is open Monday – Saturday 10:00-4:00pm and Sundays 12:00-4:00pm. The gallery is free and open to the community. For more information contact Guilford Art Center at or 203-453-5947.
