Local Artists To Get Hung

Art By Local — an awkwardly named, but intriguing and inspired week-long event — won’t open until May.  But if you’re a local “emerging artist,” you can prepare for the juried exhibition and sale now.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, live in Fairfield County and have no gallery representation or previous solo exhibitions.  Artists may enter up to 5 works of art in any media.

Entries must be accompanied by a $20 fee, a CD of up to 5 works, an artist statement and biography.  All work must have been completed after January 2008, and priced under $1,000.  The deadline is March 19.

Art work will be displayed in retail stores and offices in Sconset Square from May 15-23.  The show opens with a preview party on May 20, and closes with a day of art demonstrations, entertainment, food and activities.

It is sponsored by the Downtown Merchants Association and Westport Arts Center.
