Ridgefield Guild of Artists invites you to a holiday party and art auction as the kick-off to the Art of Giving exhibit for the month of December.
“We hope to see you,” says Pam Stoddart, Executive Director of the Guild. “It’s not too late to join us Saturday, December 3rd from 5-7pm. We are thrilled to have Colleen Cash, Senior VP for online auctions at Artnet.com and active Ridgefield resident, on hand as auctioneer for the party.” Some of the Guild’s much-loved local artists are generously donating artwork for this event. Come and bid on your favorite! All the while, enjoy merry music, cocktails, appetizers, and conversation.
Tickets are available online at www.rgoa.org for $20, or at the door for $25. Bring your friends. “It’s a great way to kick-off the night whether you are heading to the Symphony, Theater Barn, Playhouse, or all that Ridgefield has to offer this holiday season.” This is a fundraiser event to support the Guild.
Be the first to take in the Art of Giving exhibit in the Guild’s gallery. “We think art makes the perfect gift! What’s better than something unique and original to give to the ones you love, or even to yourself! That’s the inspiration for this December exhibit.” There will be lots to choose from in addition to the live auction. All works are 24 x 24 or smaller, the perfect size for giving! The popular Annual Canvas Fundraiser is back, too! This year’s theme is “beverages.” Look for your favorite bev! Member artists donate canvases and the Guild sells them for $50 each. Some one-of-a-kind handcrafted items will be featured, as well.
The Art of Giving exhibit will continue through Friday, December 23rd. The Guild’s antique barn is located at 34 Halpin Lane, at the bottom of the hill just before Ridgefield’s Rail Trail. Regular gallery hours are Wednesday – Sunday, 12-4pm. For more details and to purchase tickets, along with information about all Guild offerings, visit www.rgoa.org or call 203.438.8863.
