The Silvermine Arts Center www.silvermineart.org located in the bucolic town of New Canaan has long been a haven for artists and aspiring artists. Established in 1908 as a place for artists to gather by Solon Borglum, the center has been offering art classes and hosting new exhibitions every six weeks as well as sponsoring regional competitions ever since it was established.
On March 30, the Silvermine Arts Center is hosting a trunk show highlighting the work of handpicked artists. This spring event provides a perfect opportunity to choose an Easter Gift for someone special or a unique one- of - a - kind Mother's Day Gift.
The trunk show will take place from 12 noon to 5 p.m. and will highlight the work of four jewelry designers and will also include a paperie and a specialty bakery.
Danee Ann Augello, one of the four exhibitors creates jewelry made from glass that is characterized by lush colors and fanciful designs. Sarah Healy's jewelry is multicultural in nature and is noted for fusing iconic images to create timeless pieces. Daniel Lay is a metal smither that prefers simple designs to showcase the natural beauty of gems and fossils. Mary Newcomb is an award winning artist and jewelry designer best known for combining vintage and modern components. Karen Zuckert is highly regarded for her gingerbread creations that are not only beautiful but also delicious.
To end the day, there will be a lecture by David Dunlop on "Abstraction and Decoration" at 5 p.m. The tickets are $10 for members of the Art Center and $12 for non-members.
