The Greenwich Art Society was established in 1912, and its first secretary was none other than former Bush-Holley House resident and artist Elmer MacRae. To celebrate this centennial anniversary, the Greenwich Historical Society is partnering with the Greenwich Art Society to host a special exhibition that looks at the "Old House" with new eyes.

The premise of this unique exhibit was to ask artists to create contemporary works inspired by Bush-Holley's period rooms, gardens and artifacts--just as Elmer MacRae and his Cos Cob art colony contemporaries did a century ago. The fascinating results range widely in style and media and include works in paint, pastels, modeled clay and paper, as well as collage, fabric, embroidery thread and digital imagery. The works will be displayed in the Vanderbilt Education Center and the Bush-Holley House from October 24 through November 18, 2012. The public is welcome to the opening reception on October 24 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.

The juried show was coordinated by the Greenwich Historical Society and by Greenwich Art Society Board Members Michelle Rudolph and Carol Nipomnich Dixon and assisted by co-chairs Kathryn Shorts and Valerie O'Halpin. Award judges were Leslee Asch, executive director Silvermine Arts Center; Angela Vecchio, artist and creative director, GNF Marketing; and Karen Frederick, Greenwich Historical Society curator and exhibitions coordinator.

October 24 through November 18, 2012.
On view during regular hours: noon to 4 pm, Wednesday-Sunday
Free admission
Opening reception: October 24, 5:30 to 7:30 pm
RSVP: 203-869-6899
