Learn more about the work and meet the artists at the Opening Reception on Friday, April 20 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm with remarks from the Artistic Director of The Northfield Experience, Stephan Koplowitz at 7:30 pm.

The Guild presents The Northfield (Exhibition) Experience which has been specifically curated in conjunction with The Northfield Experience, April 18 through May 12, 2018, in the Main Gallery of the Center for the Arts,304 Division Street South, Northfield.  This exhibition includes paintings, photographs, textiles, collage and ceramics commissioned from nearly 30 area artists.

This exhibition is particularly unique in that it features work generated by each artist’s conceptual vision around an arts event before the event occurs. This exhibition will give viewers a unique entry point into the seven sites being animated as part of The Northfield Experience. This event is a promenade performance in which the audience will take part in a progressive walking tour that begins at The Grand Event Center, Friday-Sunday, May 4 – 6, 2018.  The Northfield (Exhibition) Experience  offers its own visual journey of both the project and of the city of Northfield. As part of the complete experience, viewers are invited to visit the gallery exhibition both before and after the May performances for differing perspectives.
