Ridgefield Guild of Artists
Established in 1974 by fourteen local artists, the Ridgefield Guild of Artists is a non-profit volunteer organization, open to all, which promotes the visual arts and arts education by providing high quality gallery space for exhibition, art classes for children and adults, opportunities for artist-in residency programs, and art lectures on-site and in collaboration with other cultural organizations. Located in a turn of the century barn on Halpin Lane off Prospect Ridge Road in Ridgefield, Connecticut, the Guild contains three large gallery rooms and a studio loft. The Guild is governed by an elected board of directors and new members are always welcome.
Great idea, poor execution. Once a photo has been burnished on to the adhesive, per manufacturer's instructions, lifting the photo off to transfer to mounting board yields often long, gooey, sticky web-like strands of adhesive that have a tendency to wrap around to, and stick to, front of photo. It leaves what is essentially an irreparable mess, even when using utmost care. Also, unless burnishing print to adhesive is done with rather extraordinary force, I've found it difficult to get the adhesive to stick to more than about 90% of the print's back.
