The winners of the Westport Arts Center’s 2011 SOLOS exhibitionists have been chosen, “after careful consideration” they stress, by the juror. The list contains many familiar names.
Robin Jaffee Frank has selected nine artists: Miggs Burroughs of Westport (half of his dipytch is shown here), Eric Chiang of Westport, Megan Craig of New Haven, Gayle Gleckler of North Salem (but who many in Black Rock remember as a great neighbor), Joan Miller of Westport, Andrea Morganstern of Bridgewater, Neil Ira Needleman of Katonah, Lawrence Russ of Southport and Ivo Stoilov of Oakville.
“The juror was looking for fresh, original and compelling bodies of work that exhibited a cohesive and distinct voice,” according to the center. “She selected artists that work in a variety of mediums, including painting, collage, film, sculpture, and photography, including lenticular.”
A reception for the artist is 6-8 p.m. Friday, May 20. A series of four artist lunches are also planned during the exhibit. More information here.
