“Have a Seat”is a contemporary group exhibit of chair and sofa art featuring artists from the West Hartford Art League.

The show, curated by faculty member C.Dianne Zweig, is a look at the many styles and interpretations of “the chair” and “the sofa.” You will find over 30 works of art in a variety of styles, interpretations and media including paintings, abstract collages and mixed media.

“Have a Seat” offers the viewing audience a variety of vibrant, whimsical, imaginative and socially relevant portraits of this familiar subject matter.

The show will open April 29 at Pompanoosuc Mills, 21 Brace Road/Firehouse Square, West Hartford, and will remain on display through the spring.

A percentage of the sales of art from this exhibit will be donated to the West Hartford Art League by Pompanoosuc Mills.
