Passion I, Passion II and Here and There will be exhibited.
The Catherine Fosnot Art Gallery and Center in New London, CT and The Visual Art Library will again host the annual Art for Your Collection exhibition, opening on December 2nd at the gallery in Harris Place, 165 State St, 6-8 PM. Art for Your Collection was originally held at The Worcester Art Museum in 1958 and 1959 and then moved to RISD where it was held for almost 30 years. Last year, The Fosnot Gallery and The Visual Art Library hosted the annual show in New London. Ten renowned art critics were asked to name 3 to 4 artists on their radar—artists they considered important to include in the show. These artists were notified of the recommendation and invited to submit images of their work for review. The artists were given free expressive reign: some artists submitted their latest works; others created a special piece for the show. A review committee was formed and chose over 70 pieces of art, which will be on display in the gallery through January 29, 2022.
The artwork selected includes signed prints, drawings, collages, sculpture, paintings, and photography. It is an exciting, thought-provoking mix of contemporary voices. The artists whose works are included in the show are Alchemyverse (Yixuan- Shao & Bicheng Liang), Brandon Anschultz, Charity Lynn Baker, Lisa Corinne Davis, Martin Dull, Fred Gutzeit, Sono Kuwayama, Stephen Lack, Jazzmen Lee-Johnson, Joanne Mattera, Judith Modrak, Donna Moylan, Jordan Seaberry, Clintel Steed, Gina Werfel, and Cecilia Whittaker-Doe.
The art is all available for purchase. Admission is free. A portion of the proceeds will go to the non-profit Visual Art Library, also located in New London.
