DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien's Grove Street Plaza will transform into La Place des Artistes for a Montmarte, Paris-styled free outdoor art event Sept. 26.
“I believe that we live in a community that is rich in artistic talent, beautiful scenery, unique subjects and inspired collectors," said local artist Nobuko Miki, who created the event. "There was a time when art shows and fundraising gallery events would abound. My dream is to revitalize and re-engage the local artistic community.”
More than 20 local artists will display and sell their work at the event. A percentage of proceeds will benefit the Darien Arts Center.
In addition to art, Darien Arts Center musicians and dancers will provide live entertainment. An art teacher from the center also will demonstrate painting techniques at the event. Food vendors will sell French cuisine, such as crapes and pastries.
The event is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The rain date is Oct. 3.
