Now celebrating its 24th year, “Art to the Avenue 2021” is vitally important to the 100 artists and the 35 merchants in Greenwich who are participating this year! Both benefit from many people visiting the Greenwich Avenue for the month of May to see the art in the stores, restaurants, and other businesses.
Each participating retailer had the opportunity to view and select through our online gallery the art work that will be displayed at their store. Soon after they made their choice, the retailers work with the artists directly to select the works that would be on display during the month of May in their location. This “match” is one of the signature aspects of GAC’s “Art to Avenue” that makes it like no other in the area.
Our artists are from all over Westchester, as well as from Connecticut as far up as Seymour and throughout the eastern part of the state.
Due to the pandemic, this year’s Art to the Avenue will be a little different and no parties will take place on opening day, yet we invite the public to enjoy the art in the participating stores as well as to visit a celebration exhibit in our Bendheim Gallery (by appointment) with all of the artists participating in this year’s event.
The Exhibition will be also virtual, for those who wish to view it from home.
Art to the Avenue will run in the participating retailers from May 6 through the 31, and in the Bendheim Gallery from May 6 to June 10. Please email [email protected] to schedule your visit.
Art to the Avenue is the signature event of The Greenwich Arts Council, it is the biggest arts festival in the area and perhaps best of all it continues through the end of May. People come to Greenwich from all over the Tri-State area to walk the streets, visit the stores, shop and view the wonderful art.
This year we will have the traditional “ART to the AVENUE MAP” online only, participating retailers will have a sign by their window with a QR code that will take you directly to this year’s Map. Additional information about this year’s event, can also be accessed through the website greenwichartscouncil.org
Of special importance for both viewers and the artists is that all the art work is for sale, with a portion of the sale benefiting the arts education programs of the GAC as well as the artists and this year more than ever, to help the sustainability of the Council, just like many other arts organizations, the Council has been greatly impacted by the pandemic. We thank you all for your support and we hope to see everyone walking up and down the streets to view the art throughout the month of May
