“Photography and Sculpture” Opens in September in Rowayton

Paintings take a back seat in the RAC gallery in September–it’s photography and sculpture front and center. The new exhibit features the work of RAC’s exhibiting members and opens Sunday, September 4. But the opening reception is Sunday, September 11 (4-6pm), delayed due to the Labor Day holiday; it is free and open to the public. “Ageless Art,” by 4 artists with combined lifetime experience of over 300 hundred years will be featured in the Portside Gallery. Featured art by Merion Frolich, Hu Lindsay, Bela Szabo, and Stan Pastore. Portside Gallery Chair is Amy Schott.

The “Photography and Sculpture” chair is Robert Sachs and the co-chair is Anne Salthouse. The judge is award winning commercial photographer, Kevin Robinson. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 12 – 5pm, Sunday, 1 – 4pm.

Mark your calendars for the next exhibit, “Expressions” in October. This is an open call for artists. Our special guest, Senator Bob Duff, will be there to present for the first time ever, the “Senator’s Selection” award. Opening reception is Sunday, October 2, 4-6pm.

Other upcoming events:  Poetry and Art with Norwalk’s Poet Laureate, Laurel Peterson, on Wednesday, September 21, 6:30 pm and in October, a Craft Beer Tasting Event: Friday, October 14, 6:30pm.

For almost 60 years, the Rowayton Arts Center has been a cultural gem in the 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 are located on the bank of the scenic Five Mile River in Rowayton, CT at 145 Rowayton Avenue.
