The Annual Silverbells Art Exhibition and Sale by members of the Hamden Art League will afford viewers an extended viewing period this year, running from November 18, 2015 to January 5, 2016. The popular event, at the Miller Memorial Library Senior Center, 2901 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden, Connecticut provides an opportunity for the public to view and shop, as many of the works will be available for purchase. A wide array of original art includes paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolor as well as graphics, mixed media and pastel. The exhibition may be viewed Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
On Tuesday, December 8th, a Reception will take place in the Social Hall of the Senior Center from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. During this much-anticipated event, there will be a raffle of art related items and the presentation of awards to winning artists, as selected by an invited juror. Several monetary awards are generously donated by various local businesses and benefactors.
Both the show and reception are open to the public. If the library is closed due to inclement weather, the reception will be cancelled and possibly rescheduled.
