Photography Auction Event at IMAGES 2014

Shoreline Arts Alliance is excited to announce a new event held in conjunction with the 33rd annual IMAGES Photography competition and exhibition.  Some of our alumni photographers of the IMAGES program have donated photographs for a special auction evening preceding the opening of the IMAGES 2014 exhibition.  On Friday night, April 4 beginning at 6pm the public is invited to a sneak preview of the IMAGES 2014 exhibition and to participate in a silent and live auction of art from former award winning IMAGES photographers.  Join us at the Mill Gallery of Guilford Art Center, 411 Church Street, Guilford.  This event is a wonderful opportunity for adding to your art collection or perhaps to start a fine art collection.  Many of the photographers who have generously donated their work to Shoreline Arts Alliance for this event have or have had work hung in prestigious galleries around the country including the White House.

Work will be presented by Eric Hummel, auctioneer for this special event.  Photographs include color, black & white, Polaroid, scanned images while embracing a wide variety of subject matter.  Photographers that have offered their work for auction, to date, include: Melanie Barocas Mayer, Christopher Beauchamp, Marion Belanger, Joseph Ciffarelli, Terry Dagradi, Joan Fitzsimmons, Matthew Garret, Robert Giannotti, Ellen Hoverkamp, Keith Johnson, Sean Kernan, Jack McConnell, Joanne Schmaltz, Harold Shapiro and David Tefft.  Click here to view the photos in the auction. (Photos will be added as work is received).

Many of the artists will be in attendance and guests will have an opportunity to meet them and learn about their work as photographers while you sip, snack and share in the photographic excellence of Connecticut artists.  The event is free and open to the public.  Reservations required.  RSVP to

IMAGES at CT Hospice:
At the close of the show at the Mill Gallery of the Guilford Art Center, many of the wonderful photographs from IMAGES 2014 will be re-installed for a month long exhibition at CT Hospice in Branford. 2014 dates are May 1 - May 29.
