"Spring Art Exhibition" — Ridgefield, CT

The Ridgefield Guild of Artists 2014 "Spring Exhibition" explores the idea of re-conceptualizing, re-purposing, and re-imagining as a visual art form. This invitational show will feature artists who use their materials in unique and unexpected ways to express their personal vision. Some artists use recycled materials, some use their chosen medium until it evolves into something altogether different. Others remake, deconstruct, expand, and transform. Some artists surprise and delight the viewer with their installations, but be assured that all share their vision with resourcefulness, wit, and wisdom.

The art exhibition will run through April 27th.
