Hygienic Art’s tenth annual juried show, Crossing the Bridge, will open with a reception 7-10 p.m. Saturday, April 25th, at Hygienic Art Galleries, 79 Bank Street, New London. The exhibit will be up until May 23rd.
This year’s guest juror is D. Samuel Quigley, director of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum.
Artists can submit up to three pieces of original art to be considered.
The strength in this dynamic show exists in its acceptance of all types of media, as well as thematic content – as there are no thematic requirements or guidelines, giving artists considerable freedom.
This regional show attracts more than 100 artists submitting artwork, and solicits artists’ freshest work. This juried exhibition offers viewers a diverse representation of the region’s art community.
Like the title suggests, Crossing the Bridge was conceived to knit the art community together, eliminating the barriers distance, and bridges, can present.
The turn-out has been very successful, with artists coming from as far as Providence, Rhode Island, or New Haven, noted Kat Murphy, a former resident artist at the Hygienic who was instrumental in conceiving Crossing the Bridge.
“New London is like a nice little hub – if you are going to cross the bridge a little bit, New London should be the destination,” said Murphy.
It is an exhibit that bridges the rivers that sometimes divide us, with art as the powerful connection that is the creative, resonant voice, one that the Hygienic is proud to host.

Hygienic Art , 79 Bank Street, new london, CT , 06320

Hygienic Art’s tenth annual juried show, Crossing the Bridge, will open with a reception 7-10 p.m. Saturday, April 25th, at Hygienic Art Galleries, 79 Bank Street, New London. The exhibit will be up until May 23rd.
This year’s guest juror is D. Samuel Quigley, director of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum.
Artists can submit up to three pieces of original art to be considered.
The strength in this dynamic show exists in its acceptance of all types of media, as well as thematic content – as there are no thematic requirements or guidelines, giving artists considerable freedom.
This regional show attracts more than 100 artists submitting artwork, and solicits artists’ freshest work. This juried exhibition offers viewers a diverse representation of the region’s art community.
Like the title suggests, Crossing the Bridge was conceived to knit the art community together, eliminating the barriers distance, and bridges, can present.
The turn-out has been very successful, with artists coming from as far as Providence, Rhode Island, or New Haven, noted Kat Murphy, a former resident artist at the Hygienic who was instrumental in conceiving Crossing the Bridge.
“New London is like a nice little hub – if you are going to cross the bridge a little bit, New London should be the destination,” said Murphy.
It is an exhibit that bridges the rivers that sometimes divide us, with art as the powerful connection that is the creative, resonant voice, one that the Hygienic is proud to host.

Art Exhibits/Openings

Mystic Aquarium, 55 Coogan Blvd., Mystic, CT , 06355

Washed Ashore is a traveling exhibit that features larger-than-life hand-crafted sculptures of marine mammals and other sea life made exclusively from marine debris. Environmental artist Angela Haseltine Pozzi founded the Washed Ashore “Art to Save the Sea” Project to educate and create awareness of ocean debris and plastic pollution and its effect on marine life species.

This astonishing exhibit is hands-on, interactive, eye-opening, and unforgettable. See 21 sculptures of the Washed Ashore Exhibit located throughout the Mystic Aquarium campus. Sculptures, like Lidia, the eight-foot seal, a walk-through replica of an ocean gyre, a Styrofoam coral reef, Tula, a 10-foot sea turtle, and many more will be displayed throughout the property for a limited engagement beginning on November 1.

The artwork is combined with scientifically based educational signage to teach children and adults alike about ocean stewardship, responsible consumer habits and more. Adults and children alike will have the opportunity to fully engage with Washed Ashore through fun and education events and activities. The Washed Ashore exhibition is free with paid admission.
