Greenwich enjoys the great and artistic outdoors

Greenwich residents and art fans from all over the area had an excellent chance to look at unique works while breathing in some fresh air at the Bruce Museum’s 32nd annual Outdoor Arts Festival.

The festival, a staple of fall in Greenwich, featured live music and 85 award-winning artists from across the country. There were paintings, photography, drawings, prints, sculptures and mixed media pieces in a juried competition as Linda Tenukas and Julia Gilmore took home excellence in painting awards, Grant Silverstein won for graphics and drawing, Tracey Hambley got the top honor for mixed media, Jocelyn Braxton Armstrong won for sculpture and Mark MacKinnon won for photography.

Rasa Pranckunaite won the Museum’s Choice Award and Tate Hamilton was given Best in Show.

There was also an educational aspect to the festival as children’s art workshops were held for families and artist Carol Boucher put on live demonstrations of how to work with pastels on both Saturday and Sunday.

Post photographer John Ferris Robben was on hand for the event and more photos from him will be available online on Monday at
