Bedlam 2017

This year’s Bedlam Show opens on April Fools’ Day. We want to encourage our members to have fun with this. You decide….is it quirky? or hilarious? or downright strange, or beautiful? All mediums are accepted and you, the artist, hang all the work. Start spring with a laugh – get some art out there & hang out with your RGA community.

For participating artists: April Fool’s Bedlam closes on Sunday, April 30th at 4PM. Work may be picked up from 4 – 6PM on the 30th or Monday, May 1st from 12 – 2 PM. There will be a late charge of $20 for any works not picked up by these dates. No exceptions.


April Fools’ Bedlam

April 1 – April 30, 2017

A Ridgefield Guild of Artists’ Members-Only Exhibition


Bedlam generally means mayhem, but at Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Bedlam 2017 comes together with creative chaos.  It’s a member show curated by the artists themselves.  As members bring in their artwork for the show, they are handed a hammer and nail and hang it wherever they want. Over two days, it evolves, one painting at a time, into a unique exhibition.  Receiving ends and the opening reception begins after the last nail is handed out and the final piece is hung on the gallery walls.  It’s a creative, chaotic free-for-all…and a fabulously fun show. Somehow, it all works!  Let the Bedlam begin!
