Gilbert & Bennett artists at library

Artists who regularly exhibit at the G&B Cultural Center Art Exhibition will be featured at Wilton Library when its new monthly exhibition opens with a reception on Friday, Oct. 13, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The exhibition highlights more than 30 artists who work in a variety of media including watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, graphics, mixed media, drawings, photography and sculpture with subject matter encompassing figures, portraits, still life, abstracts, botanicals, landscapes and more.

The reception is free and open to the public.  The exhibition runs through Nov. 9.

Ed MacEwen, art chairman for Wilton Library, said, “I’ve wanted to bring this colony of artists into the library for some time and I’m delighted that we were able to make this exhibit happen.”

Pat Hegnauer, director of the G&B Cultural Center said, “We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to showcase our treasure in the former Gilbert & Bennett site with an outreach program right here at Wilton Library, which is the jewel of this community. Whether you’re at the library or the G&B Cultural Center, you can purchase an original piece of art at an affordable price, support the artists in their local community and support these two institutions — it’s a win-win situation for everyone!”

The G&B Cultural Center’s mission is to provide a quality arts venue and experience for the community through classes, viewing shows and performances, enabling people to cultivate their own personal creativity. The center offers a diverse arts experience in one location that includes all forms of visual and performing arts.

The G&B Cultural Center is at 49 New Street in Wilton. Information:
