DANBURY, Conn. – The Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut completes its sixth annual Accessible Art series of visual art exhibitions, opening four shows in four local venues on Monday, Nov 3, running through Monday, Jan. 5.
Accessible Art is a yearlong, multisite program intended to make the work of visual artists accessible to new audiences by increasing exposure through area venues who share in the creative and economic values of working together.
Successfully building the Accessible Arts series with new venues and its “In the Windows” program, the Cultural Alliance presents the works of artists Tiffany Johnson (Danbury), Honorah O'Neill (Bethel) Lisa M. Teddy (Brookfield) and Tara Tomaselli (Newtown).
“The Alliance is honored to have represented so many artists in so many venues for another year. We can only look forward to bigger and better in 2015,” said Lisa Scails, executive director of the Cultural Alliance.
