The Gallery at Still River Editions will be among the venues across the state participating in Connecticut's annual Open House Day. Three other Danbury organizations will be opening their doors to the public for free events--The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, Workspace Collective (which shares an address with the Cultural Alliance), and Art & Frame of Danbury.
The Gallery at Still River Editions will be hosting the opening reception for Nancy Lasar's solo exhibition "Flux and Flow: Unique Techniques and Collaborations" from 2 pm - 4 pm, with art, light refreshments, and conversation. Lasar's gorgeous, often large-scale work combines techniques and methods in surprising ways, always populated by her lively lines which dance form joyfully into being.
As a bonus, Still River Editions is offering a 10% off digital printing services coupon for visitors that day to use on their next (or first) digital printing order.
All four venues are within a short drive of each other, and there are numerous excellent food and beverage options around Danbury and Bethel we'd love to recommend if you'd like to take a breather in between things.
The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and Workspace Collective will be open at 287 Main St. from 11 am - 6 pm, and will have light refreshments. The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut's gallery will be open with the exhibit "Faces: Works by Larry Morse." The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut is a non-profit arts organization, community resource, and gallery right in the heart of Downtown Danbury and serving the Greater Danbury area.
Workspace Collective is a small-maker boutique, retail co-op, workshop studio and handmade gift store that occupies the same storefront as CAWC. Their offerings include designer apparel, accessories, body care, and home goods.
Art & Frame of Danbury at 60 Newtown Rd., Danbury (in the same shopping plaza as Chamomille) will be hosting the opening for the group exhibit "Abstracted Thoughts" from 5 pm - 7 pm, which will feature music by the ukulele swing group Edukated Fleas. Art & Frame's openings feature excellent, homemade munchies.
Mark Savoia, Catherine Vanaria, and Lys Guillorn of Still River Editions all have pieces in the exhibition, along with many other members of the local arts community.
