The Rowayton Arts Center (RAC) announces the selection of two new exhibiting members, who were juried in on May 15 from 15 applicants. They are pastel artist John Lawson (Bridgeport) and clay artist Nicholas Lepore (Stamford).

To become an exhibiting member, artists submit three works to be reviewed by the Artist Selection Committee, which meets three times a year – January, May and September. Artists who are selected for three of the six RAC juried exhibits within a two-year period also are eligible for exhibiting member status.

For more than 50 years the Rowayton Arts Center has been a community cultural hub that provides a welcoming environment for regional artists to exhibit and sell their work, exchange arts-related ideas, exhibit and participate in classes and workshops for creative people of all ages and at all levels. Located at 145 Rowayton Avenue on the scenic banks of the Five Mile River, admission to the RAC Gallery is free. RAC Gallery is open from 12:00 noon-5:00 p.m. on Tuesday through Saturday; 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday.
