The Friday Night Painters / Show Their Stuff


Opening Reception: Friday, July 28, 5-7 pm
Gallery Talk: Sunday, July 30, 2-4 pm

Guilford Poets Guild member Gwen Gunn is one of 21 artists participating in the Guilford Art Center show The Friday Night Painters / Show Their Stuff. The show is an exhibition of works by a feisty, dedicated, close-knit group of painters, some of whom have been working at GAC since the mid-1970s. The exhibition will be on view July 28-August 11, 2017, in the Mill Gallery at Guilford Art Center, 411 Church Street, Guilford, CT (I-95, exit 58).

The opening reception is Friday, July 28, 5-7 pm, and a gallery talk, “The Story of the Friday Night Painters,” will be held Sunday, July 30, 2-4 pm. It will feature a brief history of the group, an informal Q&A exchange, readings by four Friday Night Painter (FNP) painter/writers (poems, essays, and short stories related to painting), and refreshments. Both events are free and open to the public.

Participating artists include: Lexi McCrady Axon, Bernie Braverman, Edward Casey, Catherine Ferguson, Virginia Foster, Shirley Gonzales, Timothee Graze, Gwen Gunn, Alice Hayden, Ed Horan, Ellen Lowe, Christina Maile, Molly McDonald, Julanne Meyers, Frank Modell, Parviz Mohassel, Scott Paterson, Diana Perron, Dan Rice, Rex Walden, and Marja Watson.
