Ridgefield High School Show

The Ridgefield Guild would like to congratulate all RHS students who submitted their artistic pieces to the 6th Annual RHS Exhibition. 

Opening reception Thursday, April 20th, 5:30 – 7 pm.

The Ridgefield Guild would like to congratulate all RHS students who submitted their artistic pieces to the 6th Annual RHS Exhibition. Participating in events like this is a great way to experience and be part of the local art scene.  This year we received a very nice mix of artwork that included collage, paintings, photographs, sculpture, digital work, pastel and drawings using pencil, colored pencil, ink, pen and charcoal. It is always a pleasure to view high school work as we, the jurors, find it to be expressive and experimental showing a depth and array of emotion and candor.

We are asking all accepted students to bring in two pieces. We are also awarding prizes, but will make the decision after the artwork is dropped off at the Guild. Cash Awards are for First and Second Place; Honorable Mentions will also be given. Notification of awards will be prior to the Artists’ Reception, which I hope everyone will attend with family and friends. There will be a member show, Bedlam, open downstairs to view also.

Please bring the following pieces to the Guild during the drop off times (see below)
