We introduce 2 new artists this week. Both are Staples graduates. One still lives in Westport; the other is in California.
Both appreciate our weekly art gallery.
Actually, its your gallery. Send us your art — in whatever form you create it. You don’t have to be a pro, or even experienced. We want it all!
Art should be inspired by, relevant to, or somehow, in some way, connected to our current lives. Student submissions of all ages are especially welcome. So are artists who have not submitted before.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, to share your work with the world.
