Two new exhibits will open Nov. 2 at the West Hartford Art League.


The Art of Drawing, a juried show highlighting the art of the pencil, and “ClassWork,” an exhibit featuring student work in the adult pottery classes as well as Bob Noreika ‘s watercolor classes, will be opening Thursday, Nov. 2 in the West Hartford Art League’s Clubhouse and Saltbox galleries.

The opening will be held from 6-8 pm. and is free and open to the public. Work will be available for sale.

The Art of Drawing was juried by Steve Wilda, an award-winning artists from Massachusetts. The exhibit was open to artists working in pen, pencil, charcoal, graphite, and other drawing mediums as a way to “draw” attention to this medium which is often thought of as a precursor to a painting or other finished work of art. This exhibit was sponsored by the Edward C. and Ann T. Roberts Foundation. A juror’s talk and artist critique will be given by the juror Saturday, Nov. 18 in the Clubhouse Gallery at 2 p.m

ClassWork, a student exhibit, showcases work by current and former students, as well as instructors in our adult evening pottery classes. Students in Bob Noreikas’ watercolor class will have work displayed on the walls.

Both exhibits will be in the galleries through Nov. 26.

The West Hartford Art League is located at 37 Buena Vista Rd., 5 minutes from West Hartford Center. Admission to the galleries is always free. Gallery hours are Thursday-Sunday from 1-4 p.m. For more information visit westhartfordart.org or call 860-231-8019.
