Florals, landscapes, abstracts, still lifes, and more, in colors both vibrant and subtle, will be on exhibit in the 2016 Spring Art Show, sponsored by the Art Society of Old Greenwich, April 1 to 29. The show will be located at the Garden Education Center, 130 Bible Street in Cos Cob. This show also features the award-winning artwork of Greenwich High School students who have been selected to receive ASOG’s annual scholarship awards.
Evoking the delights of spring, ASOG members will exhibit artworks in oil, acrylics, watercolor, photography, graphics, pastel, sculpture and mixed media. Cash awards to members will be presented: first place: $50, second place: $25, and third place: ribbons. In addition, student scholarship awards will be presented to GHS students who demonstrate talent and a commitment to the arts.

Artists Frank Smurlo, Jr., Carol Nipomnich Dixon and Libby Collins will be the student award jurors.
