The Stamford Art Association has worked with Quinn Whelan, a Westhill High School (Stamford, CT) senior, to organize and present a juried online exhibit, “Rooted to Hope“.
This is a virtual fundraiser in support of the Coalition for Rainforest Nations, a 501(c)3 multinational organization dedicated to the awareness of rain forests globally and to preventing their deforestation.
Forty-seven artists have each submitted a work of art depicting inspirational landscapes, woodlands, trees, or denuded landscapes. A portion of sales will be donated to the Coalition for Rainforest Nations by the artists.
The exhibit is curated by Benice Horowitz, award-winning painter and teacher. The exhibit will run November 15 to December 17, 2020, and open at 4 pm on Sunday, November 15.

About the Stamford Art Association
The Association’s Townhouse Gallery holds eight consecutive shows each year, six of which are juried exhibits and two are solo exhibits, with prominent jurors from art schools, galleries and institutions in New York and surrounding areas, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum, Bruce Museum, and Museum of Modern Art. All artists, not just members, are welcome to submit their work for the exhibit. Annual competitions draw submissions from local, regional, and national artists. The SAA also curates the 3 annual “Art at the Ferguson” exhibits at the Ferguson Library.
