‘Of Art and Craft’ Opens at Flinn Gallery
Art, craft or magic? The Flinn Gallery at Greenwich Library invites you to decide for yourself by visiting the show “Of Art and Craft” from Oct. 26 to Dec. 6. An Opening Cocktail Reception will take place Thursday, Oct. 26, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Nine artists will display creations of glass, clay and fiber, substances traditionally considered “craft materials,” but worked with such talent, imagination, and skill that the resulting pieces are unquestionably works of art. The show features glass works by Kathleen Mulcahy, Josh Simpson, and Adam Waimon; clay sculptures from Jocelyn Braxton Armstrong, Susan Eisen, and Phyllis Kudder Sullivan, and fiber explorations by Emily Barletta, Norma Minkowitz, and Ellen Schiffman. All contribute to the rich variety represented in this exhibit as the artists perform a transformation and create memorable, eye-catching pieces.
Leslee Asch and Barbara Richards are the curators of the exhibit.
During the course of the exhibition, the gallery will present several public programs. On Friday, Oct. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. – Art Lounge: Extended Gallery hours, and at 8 p.m., the Friends Friday Film presents Cameraperson. On Sunday, Nov. 5, 2 p.m., there will be an artist talk with Susan Eisen, Norma Minkowitz and Ellen Schiffman; and on Saturday, Nov. 18, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., a Tax-Free One-day Affordable Craft Sale.
All programs are free and open to the public. The Flinn Gallery is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday until 8, and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 203-622-7947.
