The Fifth Crossing Annual Juried Exhibition
April 24 – May 22, 2010
Opening Reception Saturday, April 24, 7 – 10 pm
The original concept of "crossing the bridge" is an attempt to get people "Out for Art." In Southeastern Connecticut everyone's excuse for not getting out to local events many times comes back to the bridge and possibly the rivers that divide our towns. This exhibition is an attempt to get people to cross the bridge literally as well as to motivate artists to become involved on our side of the river. It is a regional show with over 100 artists submitting artwork to be considered.
The Fifth Crossing Juried Exhibition is not a theme based show - it is open to all themes and we hope to receive artists' best and most recent work. It is also an opportunity for new artists from across other bridges to get involved with the exciting things happening at the Hygienic Art Galleries and in downtown New London. Every year we have a different juror. Every Juror looks for different things so it is always interesting to see what makes the cut.
The opening reception will be Saturday, April 24 from 7-10. There will be cash prizes for selected best pieces. The show will run through Saturday May 22.
