Letter from the Executive Director
In 2012 we celebrated the Silvermine Guild of Artists' 90th anniversary. What began as an artist colony meeting in an artist's nearby barn is now the Silvermine Arts Center, one of the finest and most exciting art centers in the United States.
Two years after the Guild was founded it was formally incorporated and the Silvermine School of Art began. That was 1924. This spring we will once again be celebrating a 90th birthday! The school's 90th Birthday Bash will be held Saturday, May 3rd, 2014. In 2012, in conjunction with the 90th gala we held a special 90th birthday all-Guild exhibition. Similarly, the 2014 birthday bash will be held during the annual Student Exhibition.
Energy is high at Silvermine Arts Center. We just held our 3rd Annual ArtsFest with over 500 people attending from near and far – many of whom had never been to Silvermine. We have added new pieces to the Sculpture Walk, and invite you to enjoy the full range of offerings on our campus.
Come visit, enjoy our grounds, see an exhibition, hear a concert, take a class or workshop…
Feel the vibrancy that is Silvermine…
Hoping to see you soon,
