Fifteen local artists will be featured at the Westport Artists' Collective 4th “Pop Up” exhibition Thursday at the Westport Arts Center.
The one-night-only exhibit will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at the center, 51 Riverside Ave. It is free and open to the public.
The Pop Up is expected to include a diverse range of work by artists in the Westport Artists' Collective, including Amy Bock, Ivanilde Brunow, Trace Burroughs, Eric Chiang, Randi Davis, Niki Ketchman, Susan Lloyd, Day Moore, Olivia Munroe, Diane Pollack, Steve Pomerantz, Nancy Reinker, Jill Sarver, Norm Siegel, and Al Coyote Wiener.
The 15 artists who exhibited at the Pop Up show last spring selected the 15 artists for this exhibit. In turn, the artists in this Pop Up will each select an artist those who will show their work next spring.
Helen Klisser During, the Westport Arts Center’s artistic director, and five local artists founded the collective in 2014. Founding artist members include Nina Bentley, Tammy Winser, Jahmane West, Duvian Montoya and Miggs Burroughs.
The Westport Artists’ Collective has grown to include 150 members who, according to publicity for the event, “have joined forces to discuss, create and develop dynamic art experiences.”
“I am so proud to see the Westport Artists’ Collective blossom into a viable and passionate collective that is presenting such talented and committed artists,” Klisser During said in the release.
