The Seventh Crossing Annual Juried Exhibition
April 28 – May 26, 2012
Opening Reception Saturday, April 28, 7 – 10 pm
The Seventh Crossing Annual Juried Exhibition 2012 will be the Hygienic Art Gallery's seventh year of its juried art show. 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's original concept 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 Sixth 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 28 from 7-10. There will be cash prizes for selected best pieces. The show will run through Saturday May 26. Visit www.hygienic.org for info and to become a member of our website.
