Oh, what a night!

The Sisters did it again!  We had a wonderful time sponsoring the opening of Local Color at the Guilford Art Center.  It is the finale for this traveling exhibit...we will be welcoming home 'our' Hartford's Colt Dome at our next SAQA/CT meeting at the end of March.  Several of our members have pieces included:  Barb Adams, Ruth Anne Olson, Linda Zimmerman, Robin Wolek, Yvette Howard, Gail Kotowski, Carol Ludington and Diane Wright (me)

Six of us used one of my photos of the Hartford icon to create 20" pieces. All the same and all very different.

Each venue that Local Color has visited has been different (Western State CT U in Danbury, Legislative Office Bldg in Hartford and Slater Museum of Art in Norwich) and each time the work relates to each other differently.  Very interesting how that is.  Truth be told:  this was my personal favorite.  GAC's gallery is very intimate...and the pieces sing under their lights.
