Pop in to a Pop Up show by the Westport Artists Collective on Wednesday, June 6 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. at the Westport Arts Center. The Pop Up is free and open to the public, and will be on view through Saturday, June 9. The Pop Up can also be previewed during the day on June 6.
The Westport Artists Collective Pop Up shows are a reflection of Westport’s creative heritage and are wildly popular events. The Arts Center opens its space to the Collective three times each year, allowing local artists to showcase their work, and the entire community to show its support.
The Pop Up includes a diverse range of works by fifteen artists in the Artists Collective, selected by the participants in the November 2017 Pop Up event.
Selected artists include Ginny Awn, Tom Berntsen, Louise Cadoux, Larry Gordon, Kerry Heftman, Gail Ingis-Claus, Karen Kalkstein, Elisa Keogh, Fruma Markowitz, Kathy Nolan, Marjorie Poe, Delores Santoliquido, Anthony Santomauro, Guy Sealy, and Sherri Wolfgang.
Tammy Winser, a founding member of the Westport Artists Collective, stated, “A fun, lively time is coming your way at the Collective Pop Up. You can check out diverse artwork from a fresh crop of our artists, and there’s always a chance of the unexpected ‘find,’ so it’s definitely worth it to pop in.”
The Westport Artists Collective will also host an Artists Talk at the Westport Arts Center on Saturday, June 9 at 3 p.m. The Artists Talk is free and open to the public. Attendees will gain a behind-the-scenes perspective from several of the Pop Up artists, who will discuss their influences, techniques and works.
The Westport Artists Collective has quickly grown to include 150 members who come together monthly to discuss and develop dynamic art experiences. It serves as a base for Westport Arts Center’s artist members, bringing exciting Pop Up shows and other unique art events to the Arts Center and Fairfield County.
