Fragments of Memory will be on display through January 20th in the Main Library third floor gallery. This is the first exhibit by the SAA at the Ferguson Library since COVID-19 restrictions forced the Art at the Ferguson collaboration between the SAA and the library to be put on hold. The theme is tied to “Beloved”, Toni Morrison’s classic novel, which is part of the October Big Read Program at the Library. Guests will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 72 hours to attend the opening.
About the Stamford Arts Association
Established in 1971, the Stamford Art Association is a nonprofit 501 (3)c organization whose members include painters, sculptors, printmakers, photographers and multimedia artists. In its 50th year, our mission as an arts organization is to provide a forum where emerging and professional artists can discuss and exhibit their work within the community and compete in juried shows. The Association’s Townhouse Gallery holds eight consecutive shows each year, two of which are solo exhibits and six are juried exhibits with prominent jurors from art schools, galleries and institutions in New York and surrounding areas, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Bruce Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. We host an international exhibit, the Faber Birren Color Award Show, and a High School Student Show for Fairfield County students. All artists, not just members, are welcome to submit their work for exhibits. Annual competitions draw submissions from local, regional, and national artists. The SAA also curates the 4 yearly “Art at the Ferguson” exhibits at the Ferguson Library.
