The Ridgefield Guild of Artists’
2-1-2 Juried Exhibition
February 12 – February 27, 2022
This year the Ridgefield Guild will again offer a special opportunity for a small group show. Five artists, as selected by our juror, will share the entire downstairs gallery. Two artists will go in the front gallery, one in the middle, and two in the third…thus the 2-1-2 title of the exhibition.
Editor in Chief, WAG Magazine
A 2020 YWCA Visionary Award winner and a 2018 Folio Women in Media Award winner, Georgette Gouveia is the editor in chief of WAG magazine, a luxury lifestyles publication of the Westchester and Fairfield County Business Journals that has been named a top magazine by the New York Press Association for five years, garnering six awards. Prior to that, she was senior cultural writer for Gannett Inc. where she earned four Associated Press Awards for visual arts reporting and criticism. She is the author of “The Essential Mary Cassatt” (Harry N. Abrams/Wonderland Press) and several exhibit catalog essays on the subjects of contemporary art and money and the Colombian painter Federico Uribe. She is co-curating and writing “Claiming the Canon: Women Disrupting Art History,” a proposed exhibit for the Lehman College Art Gallery.
Gouveia holds a Bachelor of Arts degree and a master’s degree in critical writing from Sarah Lawrence College, where her teachers included the short story writer Grace Paley. When she’s not writing, she enjoys ancient Greek culture, classical singing, yoga, walking, weightlifting, and decorating her home.
For this show there are no restrictions on the type of media. We welcome any and all materials. It is our hope that this opportunity will inspire the entrants to reach beyond their ordinary submissions and help to create a truly incredible show. Your work must fit in the space allotted to you and your art must be properly framed and presented. Selections are made based on the examples of work submitted by an artist.
