Silvermine Spree at Potpourri


Silvermine Arts Center and Lyn Evans Potpourri Designs are collaborating on a one-day art and fashion shopping spree. Donna Yellin, store manager at Lyn Evans Potpourri Designs, will be creating a dramatic backdrop of women’s clothing and accessories to complement an exhibit of artwork by selected Silvermine Guild artists at 103 Elm Street, New Canaan, on Thurs., March 31, from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served.

Art and fashion go hand in hand, and New Canaan businesses have a long tradition of partnering with not-for-profit organizations.  Silvermine, a non-profit arts center, now in its 94th year, provides as many as 20 exhibits a year and education in a wide spectrum of artistic disciplines to adults and children throughout Fairfield County.

Lyn Evans Potpourri Designs will donate 15% of the proceeds to Silvermine Arts Center for the day on all sales at the store.  In addition, there will be a wine and cheese opening on Wed., March 30, to meet the artists and preview the artwork, which will be on display for two weeks, until April 14. This opening preview will run from 6-8 p.m.

So come out and have a Spree at Potpourri on March 31st.  Your shopping will be guilt-free as you will have an opportunity to buy affordable artworks by local professional artists and support one of Connecticut’s oldest and finest art centers.
