PAST EVENTS


Our first Re-Open house/exhibition  will be the last week in October 2011. Friday, October 28th, 7PM- 9PM


 "CROP CIRCLE"
The show topic will be focused promoting an awareness of the connection between food, culture, and the environment. Essentially thinking globally, acting locally. The conceptual thread of this exhibition is based on the outreach and entanglement of artists, farmers, the environment, and community through mutual exchange.
The artists who are participating in this event are working within two criteria. Firstly, to support local farmers by creating a piece inspired by and purchased at the Local Farmers Market. The rationale behind this is to support (at least symbolically) the Connecticut farmers who practice organic and sustainable agriculture on a local level. The second criterion is that the artists will donate a percentage of the sale of their work to the Local Food Bank. This donation benefits both the community,the farmers, and the artists who participate in this project. Public attendance to this event brings the project full circle.

 And of course there will be great food,music, and conversation!
