The exhibit will take place in the West Hartford Art League’s Saltbox Gallery from July 13 – 23.  There will be an opening reception Thursday, July 13, from 6-8 p.m. at 37 Buena Vista Rd. The opening is free and open to the public.

This special exhibit will highlight work completed in classes taught at CCARC by Vince Stryeski, an architect who donates his time every week to “Making Dreams Happen Though Art.” CCARC supports nearly 200 men and woman from throughout Central Connecticut through both day and residential services.

Selected work at the exhibit will be available for sale at the opening reception, with all proceeds helping to support programs at CCARC.

“Our art program has opened up a new realm of creativity and meaningfulness for the people we serve,” states CCARC’s Chief Executive Officer Anne Ruwet.

Art League Director Roxanne Stachelek said, “The mission of the West Hartford Art League is ‘to educate and inspire,’ and what Vince and CCARC are doing fits right into that goal. We hope that the public will join us to celebrate this work at the opening reception on the 13th.”
