Black Rock Creative, an exhibition of works by local artists, will open at the Schelfhaudt Gallery this Thursday, February 7 and run to March 2.

An opening reception will be held February 7 from 5:30 p.m.to 7:30 p.m. at the gallery, which is located at the Arnold Bernhard Center, 84 Iranistan Avenue, Bridgeport. Free parking is available at the gallery.

Featuring works by 17 artists, Black Rock Creative celebrates the prolific energy of Bridgeport’s Black Rock neighborhood, which is home to innumerable artists, musicians, writers, academics, collectors, and other professionals in the arts.
“This synergy provides a great example of when a community can work toward better art and society, it becomes a beacon of achievement,” says gallery director Peter Knosterlie.
