“Out of Line” is a group exhibit featuring art by 22 multi-media artists who have studied through the years under instructor Dianne Zweig at the West Hartford Art League.

Nicknamed “Marvelous Mark Makers” this group has stayed together during the pandemic “virtually” supporting each other and using their art to stay focused and “sane” during these difficult times, Zweig said.

Their work showcases explorations in collage, mark-making and paint and highlights many different approaches to creating abstract art.

The show is on display in the Clubhouse Gallery. “Out of Line” participating artists include:

  • Debra Cantor
  • Shari Cassut
  • Heston Clapp
  • Joanna Eickenhorst
  • Any Goldbas
  • Jill Pasanen
  • Lynn Katz
  • Lee Fenwick
  • Sue Ellen Landwehr
  • Nicole Leavens
  • Leslie Luksberg
  • Cecelia McCulloch
  • Kathleen McKay
  • Michelle Peterson

“Through the Tulle” will feature 22 selected costumes from Ballet Theatre Company’s past productions of The Nutcracker, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Don Quixote.

Ballet Theatre Company of West Hartford is celebrating its 22nd season this year. This traveling exhibit has been dedicated to its talented “tutu makers” whose work has gone above and beyond the stitching of costumes to ensure Greater Hartford the highest quality of professional performances, education, and cultural experiences. The exhibit is on display in the Saltbox Gallery.

Both galleries, located at 37 Buena Vista Rd. in West Hartford, are open Thursday through Sunday from 1-4 p.m.  The exhibits are on display from Nov. 1-22, and attendance is free and open to the public.
