Wilton Library Presents “The Wilton Open” November-December Art Exhibition
Diverse works of local artists will be showcased in exhibit
Wilton Library is pleased to present the diverse works of local artists in “The Wilton Open” art exhibition, opening on Friday, November 18 with a reception from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This exhibition features at least 20 artists from Wilton and surrounding towns who submitted inquiries expressing an interest in exhibiting their works at the library, starting from the year 2019 to the present. Their work represents a wide variety of styles, media, and subject matter. The reception is free and open to the public.
“After a two year pause due to the pandemic, art exhibitions have returned to the walls of the library, and the response from artists and patrons has been tremendous. We thought this would be the perfect time for a special exhibition that showcases the works of local artists who actively reached out to us because they wanted to display their work at the library,” said Ed MacEwen, Art Chairman of Wilton Library. “This show is really a celebration - our connections to our community are very meaningful to us, and many of the artists participating in the exhibition say that this means a lot to them, too.”
The exhibition runs through Wednesday, December 28. A majority of the works are available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the library. Wilton Library hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m. The library will be closing early at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, November 23, closed on Thursday, November 24 for the Thanksgiving holiday, closed on Saturday, December 24 for Christmas Eve, and closed on Sunday, December 25 for the Christmas holiday.
