The Society of Creative Arts of Newtown (SCAN) will present “Color in Winter” weekdays from February 2 through March 29. The annual exhibition will be presented in the main corridor of Newtown Municipal Center, 3 Primrose Street within the Fairfield Hills campus.
Show hours will be Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.
The public is invited to an artists’ reception on Wednesday, February 28, from 3 to 4:30 pm.
“Color in Winter” is a longstanding exhibition hosted by SCAN. The six-week event features works by SCAN members, offering the artists an opportunity to exhibit up to three pieces of framed artwork. Most works are available for purchase.
(Receiving is scheduled for Thursday, February 1, from 3 to 6 pm. Nonmembers can join at that time; visit SCANart.org or call 203-730-0762 for membership information.)
Prior to the reception, celebrated artist Dick McEvoy will offer a free demonstration of creating a painting with pastels. Mr McEoy’s subject will be the Grand Tetons.
The program will begin at 1:30 pm, and is also free of charge.
