Locals to enjoy a brush with art

April 17, 2013 by  

The 55th Annual Darien Art Show & Sale is just over a month away and will feature amazing new event sections in 2013. There will be some private collectors, a best-in-show solo, and everything else one would expect on the usual event roster.

The show will also bring in last year’s contest winner, Sergey Stepanenko, to host an overlapping solo show with the event, which is likely to draw even more visitors than usual.

Talking about the upcoming event and its new improvements, event co-chairman Britt Blair stated:

“While the quality of the entries has always produced fabulous winners, we plan to raise the bar by reaching out more to accomplished artists locally and from out of town. We already have many commitments from professionals in their fields, award winners and artists with dedicated followings.”

Winners at the Annual Darien Art Show can walk away with a variety of prizes, many of which have been provided by local businesses supporting the event. Cash prizes will be awarded to show winners, and a solo show will be awarded to this year’s best-in-show winner.

As the show hopes to recruit even more attendees than usual, organizers may consider the use of print companies to encourage visitors from local towns like Fairfield and Norwalk. Using flyer printing or banner printing services can help to spread the word about the event.

It will get underway on May 31 at 7:00 pm Following the event, the artwork will be open to the public for viewing at Weatherstone Studio during the first week of June.
