Hall-Brooke friends issue call to artists
The Friends of Hall-Brooke has issued a call to artists to submit works for its 10th anniversary juried art show and sale to be held in Westport in May 2012.
The weekend art show and sale in past years has drawn more than 350 people. Entrants typically have included artists from throughout Fairfield County and beyond, the sponsors said.
Friends of Hall-Brooke works to enhance the care of mentally ill patients at the St, Vincent's Medical Center Behavioral Health Services Westport Campus.
During the show, artists' work is exhibited in a community gallery at the Westport campus, and artists retain 60 percent of their sold pieces. An award is presented for best in show.
The sale benefits the friends group.
Artists may send six to 10 non-returnable images of recent work -- either digital or prints -- along with a brief biography, a resume or CV and artist statement to: Friends of Hall-Brooke Annual Art Show, St. Vincent's Westport Campus, 47 Long Lots Road, Westport CT 06880.
Deadline for submissions will be March 1, 2012.
