Waterford Historical Society (CT)
The fourth annual Art In Waterford exhibition on Jordan Green to be held August 6 and 7, 2022, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, is a free, family-oriented event featuring a Waterford artist of the past in the Beebe-Phillips House; local artists’ paintings in a juried art show for viewing and for sale in the Margaret Stacy Barn; and artwork by “future” artists, area middle and high school students, in the 1740 Jordan Schoolhouse.
The event features live music by local musicians, en plein air painters, tours of historic buildings, blacksmiths demonstrating their craft at the forge, food and beverages for sale near picnic tables, and vintage cars on display. The Waterford Public Library sponsors colonial arts and crafts activities for children.
Admission is free, but donations to the Waterford Historical Society, Inc. are greatly appreciated to help us continue to present this annual event! Be sure to first stop by the main tent to purchase a program with bios and background on all the artists to enhance your visit, learn of Waterford's distinguished artists, past and present, and to support the Society.
There also will be tickets sold for a few drawings: one can purchase a chance to win an original painting, or a hand-forged original design item from the blacksmith's shop. Waterford-related books, notecards and hand-forged items from the smithy will also be available for sale.
The Waterford Historical Society, Inc. is soliciting 1 or 2 original works of art from Connecticut artists for the 4th annual “Art In Waterford” event on historic Jordan Green in Waterford, Connecticut in August 2022. Learn more, view the prospectus and download the entry form.
