Artists come ‘together’ for library art exhibition

A baker’s dozen of artists fill the walls of Wilton Library when “Together — A Collective Show from St. Philip Artists’ Guild” opens on Friday, Dec. 12, with a reception for the community from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The exhibition is comprised of 13 artists and features many styles, compositions and media including photography and subject matter.

Wiltonian Beverly Ward is among the featured artists, who are members of the St. Philip Artists’ Guild. They hail from area towns, including Darien, Greenwich, Norwalk and Westport.

The group shares studio space in the historic Manice Lockwood Mansion on the grounds of Norwalk’s St. Philip Roman Catholic Church. The focus of the group is to foster creative thinking and to support both its members and the arts community at large in pursuing its artistic goals.

Ms. Ward started painting seriously a little more than eight years ago and loves landscapes and color. She is currently working in oils but enjoys watercolor as well. Though she has made her living as an actress, Ms. Ward is now pursuing a degree in studio art.

The exhibition will include 75 pieces, the majority of which will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the library. The show runs through Tuesday, Jan. 13.
