We are thrilled to announce that our latest exhibit will open on Friday, April 22nd with a Champagne Reception from 6:30-8:30pm. Price of admission to the Champagne Reception is $30 for non-members and $25 for members. 

This exhibit begins with Darien's Guild of the Seven Arts, the second earliest art colony formed in New England, and tells the story of how New York's new media of radios, slick magazines, and Victrolas created a huge demand for artists and how many of these artists flocked to live and work in Darien and how they changed our town.

The show will run from April 23 through early 2017, noon to 5 pm on Tuesday to Thursday & Sundays from noon to 3 pm. The price of general admission is a non-member donation of $5.00

This exhibit highlights the Society’s impressive arts collection and is a major fundraising event. The Society will host several evening receptions featuring talks by the key curators, and a souvenir program booklet will be printed. Your support will help mount this exhibit, and we hope that you will consider becoming a sponsor at one of the following levels:
