Darien Virtual Art Exhibition for all ages
Artists at Grove Street show
This is a town-wide visual art show for artists who live or work in Darien.
There are three categories in this show: adults, students (high school and college), and children (elementary and middle schools). The submission period is 8/30. Artworks will be displayed on this site on a rolling basis through 9/30. The submission fee is $15 for adults and $5 for others, and each submission can consist of up to two works. I will accept all types of art forms — paintings, sculptures, photos, fiber arts, collages, etc. This show is neither a contest nor a juried show — it is solely an opportunity to celebrate our collective creativity in this tough time.
I have organized the annual outdoor art show “Artists at Grove Street Plaza” for the past five years, but I cannot run it this year because of the Coronavirus outbreak. I have instead come up with this idea to create a virtual platform for our artists to share their works. Although we have many artists in Darien, we currently do not have a town-wide art show, and so we do not know how many talented artists are out there.
We must stay home, and it is tough, but we can still create art if we try. Hopefully, through this virtual event, we can all share our creativity and spread joy to both artists and viewers.
