Local artist Tina Phillips will be honored by Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center at The Ridgefield Arts Council's annual Behind The Scenes event on May 9 at 7 p.m. at the Ridgefield Library.
For the past seven years, Phillips has been the Art Show Coordinator at KTM&HC, organizing art shows by local artists in the Cass Gilbert Carriage Barn. In the over 55 years Ms. Phillips has lived in Ridgefield, she has volunteered at numerous organizations. Art and teaching have always been her passions and have led her to teach after-school art programs and art therapy programs at Silver Hill. She is currently an art instructor at Founder's Hall. Ms. Phillips has judged art shows at the Lounsbury House, Ridgefield Women's Club, and many churches and is always ready to donate a painting, give painting lessons, or offer Paint & Pinot Parties as auction gifts at fundraising events for RABC, ROAR, KTM&HC, and Founder's Hall. She is an active member and volunteer of the First Congregational Church in Ridgefield and has served on numerous boards, including as President of The Ridgefield Boys & Girls Club.
