The Art Garage Benefit at Kent’s Morrison Gallery
The Art Garage is one of those after-school programs that not only benefits kids but also brings together parents and non-parents, full-time residents and weekenders. An after-school program founded in 2004 and run by working artists in the northwest corner of Connecticut, it a 2,000 square foot art studio nestled behind the Housatonic Vallery Regional High School. It is open to all students, a place where professional and emerging artists come together to create art. On Saturday, November 6, at the magnificent Morrison Gallery in Kent, there was a reception for this year’s fundraising exhibition that includes work by world-renown artists such as Jasper Johns, Kiki Smith and Elizabeth Murray along with dozens of important local artists such as Joel Schapira and James Meyer, two of the Art Garage founders. The exhibition will be on view and for sale through Sunday November 14.
