The monthly art challenge is on a brief hiatus.
In the meantime the Coastal Arts Guild of CT would like to announce a pop-up art show in August. We will be partnering with the Milford Arts Council and Middletown-based Artists For World Peace for their "6x6 4 Peace" wall of art.
The show will be Thursday, August 22 – Sunday August 25 at the Firehouse Gallery, 81 Naugatuck Ave, Milford, CT.
Artists For World Peace organizes pop-up shows featuring walls of 6" x 6" canvases donated by artists from all over the country (and sometimes beyond). They sell the canvases to raise money to help improve vulnerable communities. The most recent initiative is Native Eyes which raises money for free glasses and eye care for residents of Native American communities (https://www.artistsforworldpeace.org/native-eyes).
To get your 6" x 6" canvas, email Debbie Gilbert Taylor ([masked]). The cost is $2/ea. We would love to have members and guests bring finished canvases to the May meeting so we can collect them and get them up to Artists for World Peace.
If you want to make additional 6x6 canvases, we will have canvases available at the meeting for sale.
Got art to share? If you’re working on any new work you’d like to share, please bring it along. That includes visual, spoken word, anything that’s an expression of your creativity.
