“East of the River” Juried Art Show

The Marlborough Arts Center cordially invites all regional artists to participate in our “East of the River” Juried Art Show of fine art, at 231 North Main Street, in Marlborough, Connecticut.  The exhibition runs from April 21 – May 6, 2017, offering over $1000 in awards. The Juror of Selection and Awards is Bill Colrus, a graduate of Paier College of Art, where he subsequently went on to join the faculty, teaching for 33 years. Bill teaches various classes and exhibits throughout the area, garnering many awards.


This exhibit will have some special elements beyond the anticipated high quality of artwork. It will include an evening of Special Viewing by professionals and business personnel.

The Opening Reception on April 21st will include refreshments and a Silent Auction offering many interesting items. Open to all, this promises to be a special evening to come “Meet the Artists”, family, and friends.
