Stamford Art Association kicks off a new year of exhibits with their annual Faces and Figures show, juried by local artist and teacher Eddie Nino. Since 1971, the S.A.A. has made it its mission to provide a forum where emerging and professional painters, sculptors, printmakers and photographers can exhibit and compete in juried shows. Unlike other galleries, all artists and not just members are welcome to submit their work, and submissions are typically accepted from local, regional and national artists. Everyone's got an equal chance there, be it a student, a street artist or a professional.
