May 14-June 25
Women’s Work is a compilation of art work by 11 women artists working a variety of media. In some cases the art represents the work women have done throughout history and in other cases it is simply women’s work. The artists are a diverse group from as far away as California, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston, North Adams and various communities throughout Connecticut. We invite you to view their work and find whatever message you derive from that exploration.
Exhibiting artists: Adele Schonbrun, Sandy Abrams, Joyce Agri Colvario, Lorraine Agri, Anita Gangi Balkun, Debi Pendell, Chatsani Elaine Dean, Joy Floyd, Rachel Siporin, Harriet Caldwell, Valerie Culbertson.
