August 2022 Theme:
Summer Time

The Arts Alliance of Woodbury is keen to announce our 4th Members’ Invitational Exhibition. Our theme this year is Summertime. AAW is inviting all our members to submit an original artwork you have created that celebrates and shows what this time of year evokes for you. This exhibition is open to all AAW members with four $250.00 awards.

 

We are enthusiastic to announce our juror, Keffie Feldman, Ph.D., is the distinguished chief curator of the Mattatuck Museum. Her curatorial practice is informed by a wide-ranging background in art and history. She holds a Ph.D. from the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World at Brown University and a B.A. in Archaeology and Art History from Tufts University. Whether considering art of the ancient past or the contemporary present, Keffie is interested in art’s power as a means of personal and cultural expression.
