A special art exhibition showcasing the paintings of artist and Darien resident Jan Dilenschneider opens Friday, Dec. 6, at the Darien Bank & Trust, 777 Post Road, and continues through March 1.

A portion of each sale will benefit the Center for HOPE, a program of Family Centers that offers support and counseling to residents coping with a loss, critical illness or any life-altering circumstance.

Known for her still-life and landscape paintings, Dilenschneider has garnered several awards, including "Best in Show" at the 20th annual School of Art Student Exhibition sponsored by the Silvermine Arts Center.

Her work was recently on display at the Galerie Pierre-Alain Challier, located in Paris' historic Le Marais district.

Dilenschneider is also a community advocate, having served on the Family Centers' board of directors since 1998. As board chairman from 2005 to 2008, she helped guide Family Centers through two successful mergers with the Center for HOPE in 2005 and HealthCare Connection in 2008. The mergers bolstered Family Centers' range of services and allowed the agency to offer local families a greater continuum of care.
