ART BOMB: TOYMAKERS CAFE
Reception: Thursday, Oct 19, 4-6PM, Free
David M. Hunt Library, 63 Main Street, Falls Village, CT 06031, 860-824-7424, www.huntlibrary.org
In October, David M. Hunt Library will host Connecticut Academy For The Arts (CAFTA)'s ART BOMB: TOYMAKERS CAFÉ, an exhibit of young CAFTA art students' work inspired by the popular eatery run by Ann and Greg Bidou in Falls Village. The exhibit was conceived by Teresa and John Sullivan, co-founders of Connecticut Academy for the Arts, as an inter-community exchange between their students located in Torrington and the environs of the Bidou’s restaurant, which was recently hailed as a “burger and waffle oasis” by Connecticut Magazine.
"Our students enjoy making "Art Bombs" because it gives them an opportunity to learn more about diverse businesses and, at the same time use their talents to give back to various charities throughout the community. They have been working very hard on this project since early summer and have even written and recorded a song to go along with a puppet presentation inspired by Toymaker's Cafe. They are very excited about their newest Art Bomb at the Hunt Library, " said Teresa Sullivan.
Artworks will include limited edition framed prints from a variety of media including painting, drawing, and mixed media. Subjects will include things readily seen at the café—motorcycles, corgis, customers, and coffee and everything Toymakers!
A reception with refreshments for the artists will be held from 4pm to 6pm on Thursday, October 19. This event is free and open to the public. For more information call the library at 860-824-7424 or visit huntlibrary.org. For information about CAFTA visit www.cafta.info or call 860 201-5706.
The Connecticut ArtPrize is an event where the arts and culture community and public service community join together to celebrate the creative spirit in all of us. Connecticut Academy For The Arts (CAFTA) and the United Way of Northwest Connecticut have partnered for a three day weekend event that will showcase celebrity art, as well as student and teacher art. Specially invited community leaders and celebrities will paint 12” x 12” canvases that will be auctioned at the event. The celebrity piece of art that receives the most votes from preview party attendees will receive a $1000 prize for their favorite charity. In addition to the art auction, music and a wine tasting will make the preview party on November 9 a lively event not to be missed. Connecticut ArtPrize promises to become a major event in Connecticut each year. All proceeds benefit CAFTA and the United Way of NW CT, serving over 63,000 Connecticut underserved and underprivileged citizens in 26 Northwest Connecticut communities.
