Press release

Silvermine Guild Arts Center, located in New Canaan, is celebrating the holidays with the Holiday Show, an annual exhibition and sale of fine art and handcrafted gifts showcasing Small Masterpieces by Silvermine Guild Artists. Small Masterpieces incorporates work of all different media, two and three dimensional art that is united by the size of the work. All work is 6" square. The exhibition runs through December 23.

The holiday celebration also includes the annual School of Art fundraiser on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday, Dec. 7, from 1—5 p.m. Wonderful gifts are available in a variety of media created by the talented Students and Faculty of the School of Art. Original works, all available at very attractive prices, include ceramics, prints, paintings, photography, sculpture, and wearable art such as jewelry, scarves, felt hats and handbags. In the spirit of the season, a portion of the proceeds from all sales support the School of Arts Children's Scholarship Fund.

Guild Artists continue the holiday spirit with their unique gifts of original art work—including 6" square paintings and prints—and much more is in store for holiday shoppers at Silvermine Galleries. Throughout the galleries, you will find a great array of special and unique gifts. Proceeds from the gallery exhibit running through December 23 will support the art center.

Craft USA '08, the sixth national juried Craft Triennial competition will also be on exhibit at the Silvermine Galleries through Dec. 23. Celebrating craft as art, Craft USA is a juried triennial competition/exhibition showcasing original handmade works of art. Sixty-seven artists' work were selected from almost 600 entries of contemporary craft from 27 states in various mediums such as ceramics, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, paper, wood, basketry and mixed media. This year's juror is Gretchen Keyworth, Director/Chief Curator, Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA.
