Art Connection Studio held their Fall 2018 exhibition, Artist Bazaar, on September 21 at their studio in Hartford, CT. With a flea market like feel, the exhibition featured abstract paintings, fiber art pieces, jewelry, and living art. Tables were set up with special displays including those of art books as family members, staff, and Art Connection Studio artists enjoyed themselves.
Included in the Bazaar was a 50% off sale. “Many purchases were made, some one who was passing by stopped in and bought three large paintings,” shared Program Specialist at Art Connection Studio Michael Galaburri excitedly.
Artist Kyle Gonzalez, who painted Blossoming Branches one of the many pieces of artwork that was available for purchase, said, “I was super excited about the Artist Bazaar!” He enjoys making detailed works of flowers and selling his works to people at Art Connection Studio shows.“Kyle was full of smiles while we talked about his work being on the post card. He feels like a real artist,” said Michael Galaburri.
Art Connection Studio’s mission is to transform lives by providing arts-based programming for people with disabilities in a professional studio environment. For more information about Art Connection Studio and all their upcoming exhibitions, please visit www.artconnectionstudio.org.
