The popular fundraising art sale and event for collectors and enthusiasts returns to the Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, CT. Whether you are beginning or expanding your art collection, “Signed, Sealed & Delivered” is a wonderful chance to purchase original works of art by Silvermine Guild artists, School of Art Faculty and invited internationally known artists.
Returning for the 11th year this fall, with a Private Collectors Party on Saturday, October 27th from 5pm to 7pm, the event is open to the public on Sunday, October 28th from 3pm to 5pm. Featuring over 500 original works of art, all 4”x6”, including paintings, prints, photographs, mixed media, and collages. An element of mystery contributes to the fun of this event: the artist’s signature is on the back, visible only AFTER purchase. All works are $50 each and if you buy three you get the fourth free!
The private Collector’s Party (with wine and hors d’oeuvres) on Saturday is a unique opportunity to view and purchase artworks for those who want to be ‘first in line’ for this extraordinary sale and add to their collection. In addition to the works available at the Collector’s Party, there will be a silent auction of specially selected works of art. Advanced reservations are required to attend this showing and sale on October 27th with tickets at $35 per person.
Silvermine Guild members, and participating artists, Tom Bernsten a resident of Norwalk, Nash Hyon from Wilton, Roger Mudre from Weston, Nancy Nikkal, a resident of Hastings-on-Hudson, New York and Susan Sharp from Easton return as co-chairs with new co-chair Jeremy Saladyga from New Fairfield joining them for the 11th year of Signed, Sealed & Delivered. “All the works are signed on the back and exhibited so that the artists’ signatures cannot be seen. Buyers won’t know who created which piece.” said committee member Roger Mudre. Nash Hyon adds that “A collector might end up with a work by a famous artist or someone they had not known of. But what they walk away with is wonderful art and they support the great programs at Silvermine.”
Last year, exhibiting artists included Keith Richards, Roz Chast, Ross Bleckner and the many Silvermine guild artist members. Don’t pass up this unique chance to purchase special works by artists to include:, Anne Anderson (Key Largo, FL), Alberta Cifolelli (Westport), Kathy Draper (Norwalk), Leslie Giuliani (Weston), Shelby Head (Madison), Elisa Khachian (Fairfield), Colette Laico (Edmonds, WA), Jane Lubin (Westport), Terry Porter (Norwalk), Peter Rubino (Wilton), Martha Schwerdtle (Roxbury), Judith Steinberg (Stamford), and Eve Stockton (Alexandria, VA) ……. to name only a few of the artists who are participating this year.
