Meet Linda Baron, Ridgefield resident and artist.
Is there a person or organization using creativity to provoke change in Ridgefield?
For me, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists has been a place to learn, execute and share many ways of creating art. Rick Daskam; an award-winning painter, guides our group of artists. He has enabled my transition from textile designer to still life and Plein air oil painter. For several years I have participated in numerous gallery shows and the Guild’s Annual Art Walk, displaying my work at Rodier Flowers year-round.

When I think of creativity in town I think of how Ridgefield is a community that celebrates itself. Of all the festivals we share together, I feel that the Holiday Stroll inspires emotional creativity. Walking towards Main Street is like opening up an illuminated music box. A cultural mix of all ages and faiths who gather on a magical evening of horse and buggy rides, crystal ice sculptures seen through the eyes of children on parents' shoulders while holiday music plays.
