The works of a dozen Fairfield County artists will be featured during the 11th annual Mothers Day Weekend Art Show on Saturday, May 11, and Sunday, May 12, at the Westport campus of St. Vincent's Medical Center, Behavioral Health Services.

The show and sale is planned in the community room of the 47 Long Lots Road center and will include a special exhibit of work by the late Westport artist, author and activist Tracy Sugarman.

The show is sponsored by the Friends of Hall-Brooke, and 40 percent of sales will benefit the volunteer group's programs. Admission and refreshments are free, the sponsors said.

Show hours are Saturday, May 11, from noon to 8 p.m., with a meet-the-artists reception from 6 to 8 p.m.; Sunday, May 12, noon to 4 p.m.

The juried show includes a best in show prize of $500, which will be awarded during the Saturday evening reception.

Westport artist Miggs Burroughs, 2012 best in show winner, is curator of this year's show. The juror will be Helen Klisser During, director of visual arts at the Westport Arts Center.

Sugarman, who died in January at 91, was one of the nation's most prolific illustrators for more than a half century, as well as a painter.

Other Fairfield County artists featured in the show include Burroughs, Laura Wilk, Nancy Woodward, Susan Malloy, Nina Bently, Tom Kretsch, MaryEllen Hendricks, Thomas Bernsten, Janine Brown, Toby Michaels and Paul Jones.

The Friends of Hall-Brooke said its mission is to destigmatize mental illness through community outreach and education, and to enhance the clinical care provided by St. Vincent's Behavioral Health Services. Information about membership will be available at the art show.
