Exhibiting members of the Rowayton Arts Center will feature their work created with traditional brush strokes in watercolors, acrylics and oils in RAC’s upcoming exhibit. Expect to see the full range of brush strokes from fast, loose and bold to sharp hyper – realism. You’ll also see floral arrangements—inspired by the art—from Licari Custom Floral Designs by JP of Norwalk and by Adam Manjuck of Flowers and Flowers in Darien.

“Brushwork” opens Sunday, August 7, with an opening reception from 4 to 6pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Visitors will have the chance to meet the artists and view (and perhaps purchase) their art. Refreshments are served.

The exhibition judge is Carmen Lund. The Walter Brooks Memorial Award ($250) will be presented to the artist with the most outstanding watercolor. The chairperson is Eunice Roy and the co-chair is Susan Leggitt. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Saturday: 12 – 5pm, Sunday: 1- 4pm.

For almost 60 years, the Rowayton Arts Center has been a cultural gem in the Norwalk community. It is an exceptional gallery where regional artists may exhibit and sell their art as well as a wonderful venue for art workshops and classes. The Art School offers classes to children and adults at all levels. The RAC Gallery and Art School overlooks the scenic Five Mile River in Rowayton, CT at 145 Rowayton Avenue.
