Art teacher wins studio space.


Ben Quesnel, a multimedia artist, Stamford resident and art teacher at Eastern Middle School in Greenwich, has been awarded a full year of free studio space in the Wilton River Park Shopping Center through the Clementina Arts Foundation’s Sprouting Spaces program.

Quesnel was named the winner of the 921-square-foot space next to Cactus Rose during a Sprouting Spaces launch party on Dec. 16.

Winning the space, Quesnel said, was “an amazing feeling.”

“To have an accessible space to create work is hard to come by around here,” he told The Bulletin.

“As artists and cultural producers, we often spend a lot of money and time to create our work, so to acquire a space like this and free of charge is a dream.”
