    “New Terrain,” by Hopkinton’s John Sherffius, is one of the works in the Arts in Bloom showcase at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts.

    Four Hopkinton artists are among the 35 individuals whose works will be on display at the Hopkinton Center for the Arts’ Lotvin Family Gallery as part of the 15th annual Arts in Bloom showcase.

    The public is invited to attend in person (with masks and social distancing). The event runs from Nov. 13 through Dec. 19. Gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

    This year’s event presents work from 35 artists from California, Rhode Island and Massachusetts, including Hopkinton residents Jean Cummiskey, Sandra Delbridge, Cheryl Rose and John Sherffius.

    According to the HCA, artists from 40 cities and towns and six states submitted work for consideration.

    “The resilience of artists continues to amaze me,” HCA director Kris Waldman said.

    Out of 183 pieces of art, juror Marie Craig, director of Boston’s Fountain Street Gallery, singled out 39 pieces for this competitive exhibit. The six artists whose work she chose to be honored will receive cash prizes totaling over $1,000. The winning artwork will be accompanied by fresh flower arrangements designed by Hopkinton Garden Club members from Nov. 18-24.

    An online reception and award announcement is scheduled for Nov. 18 from 6-7 p.m. For more information, visit hopartscenter.org or call 508-589-4409.
