CIAA to hold opening ceremony tonight

The Conanicut Island Art Association will hold its opening ceremony for the juried exhibit “Icons of Jamestown” tonight – Thursday, June 30 – from 5 to 7 p.m. at Town Hall. Prizes will be awarded to first, second and third place.

The juror will be Joe Szarek. Szarek has spent much of his earlier years in the 1970s and 1980s in and around the New England states painting the surrounding areas. His venture to Newfoundland in 1994 to do a series of iceberg studies was the result of an article in American Artist Magazine. Szarek is represented by two museums, the Cornell Museum in Florida and the Newport Art Museum.

For more information, call Lance Gershenoff at 241-2626.
