Stamford Art Association Townhouse Gallery
39 Franklin Street, Stamford, CT 06901

A multimedia juried art exhibit featuring over 100 high school artists selected by their art teachers from 11 Fairfield County high schools.

The Stamford Art Association, a 501(c)3 organization founded in 1971, is pleased to present the 45th Annual Student Art Show at its Townhouse Gallery.

The juror is Joe Fucigna, artist and NCC Professor and Art Program Coordinator. Participating artists are selected from Fairfield County high schools.  The art teachers choose the work of 8 junior and senior art students from their schools. The work displayed is in 5 categories: painting, drawing, prints, 3D and portfolios. The awards to the students,  which total $2500, are contributed by area businesses, individuals, and Stamford Art Association artists. Over the many years that the Stamford Art Association has organized this exhibit, more than $145,000 has been awarded to Fairfield County high school art students. David Green, Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County’s Programs and Membership Director, will present the awards to the up and coming student artists at the opening reception. The exhibit is sponsored in part by a grant from the Kuriansky Foundation and a CAPP grant from the city of Stamford.
