Guilford Art Center to Feature Local & Regional Artists in Gallery Exhibition by New Haven Paint & Clay Club

Guilford Art Center is thrilled to announce its upcoming exhibition, featuring mixed media works of the New Haven Paint & Clay Club. The exhibition will run from March 18 – April 12 and promises to captivate art enthusiasts with its diverse range of artistic expressions from local and regional artists.

The Opening Reception is scheduled for Sunday, March 24, 1:00-3:00pm. It is free and open to the community.

The New Haven Paint & Clay Club (NHP&CC), with its rich legacy and commitment to fostering artistic excellence, brings together a community of passionate painters and sculptors. It showcases the work of its members and regional artists through annual exhibitions, and actively supports and promotes the visual arts in the greater New Haven area and beyond. The Club also engages local communities by sharing loaned artworks from its permanent collection, offering merit awards, scholarships, free programs and lectures, and other art related activities.

“We are honored to welcome the New Haven Paint & Clay Club to Guilford Art Center,” said Maureen Belden, Executive Director of Guilford Art Center. “This exhibition celebrates the power of artistic expression and the vibrant cultural landscape of our community. We invite art enthusiasts of all ages to join us in experiencing the beauty and inspiration of these incredible artworks.”

The art and awards for the Club’s open juried show this year were selected by Professor Kathryn Meyers from the University of Connecticut at Storrs. She chose pieces in a wide variety of styles and media, well representing the traditional and contemporary works common to NHP&CC shows and its permanent collection.

Visitors to the exhibition can expect to encounter a dynamic array of paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media pieces, each offering a unique perspective and narrative. From traditional landscapes to abstract compositions, the artworks on display promise to ignite imagination, provoke thought, and evoke emotional resonance.
