Volunteer artists are needed to serve on the Curatorial Committee for the Kershner Gallery in the Fairfield Library. The position involves attending monthly meetings to review the portfolios of those that apply to exhibit in the gallery; visiting the studios of those that are accepted; curating the six or seven shows each year; and designing and distributing the postcards for the shows. Committee members are area artists who themselves have exhibited their work. Call Alice at 203-259-8026.

Now at the Gallery


January 26 – March 17

The public is invited to a reception on February 3 at 4:30 to 6:30 pm at the Kershner Gallery in the Fairfield Library for “Movement”, an invitational community show. Awards will be presented by the Curatorial Committee for First, Second, Third Place and Honorable Mention awards.

The artwork, which was accepted on a first come, first serve basis,  is in many mediums, styles, and sizes. The artists have all explored the theme of movement. The entry form quotes Arshile Gorky as saying, “Movement is the translation of life, and if art depicts life, movement should come into art, since we are only aware of living because it moves.”
