Student Exhibition Opens Friday, Summer Classes Begin, July 10 Pop-Up Artists

Opening this Friday in the Gallery
New art work by adult students at Guilford Art Center will be featured in the GAC Adult Student Exhibition in the Center’s gallery, June 25 – July 31, 2021. The show will highlight recent work in all media by adult students who have taken classes or workshops at Guilford Art Center in the past two years. Students will provide reflection on how art helped them during the pandemic or was meaningful to them.  
“This exhibition is an opportunity for Guilford Art Center to showcase the works our students have created in our classes that took place during the pandemic,” says Executive Director Maureen Belden. “There are paintings and drawings, pottery, weaving, blacksmithing, jewelry, glass and more—works that demonstrate the variety of experiences and artistic perspectives of our students. We hope the community will be inspired by the way art helped our students in a great variety of ways during this unprecedented time.” 
The Student Exhibition opens on Friday, June 25. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Friday 12-4pm, Saturday 10am-4pm. Gallery entry is free and open to the public.
