Vinfen’s Art Connection Studio held their 20th exhibition, Ebb & Flow, on the 20th of April at their studio in Hartford, CT. The show featured paintings, mixed media works, fiber arts, wood burnings, living art made of succulents, and handcrafted, wearable pieces.
“Ebb & Flow was an aquatic theme, based on the idea of cycles of life. The artists and facilitators came up with the theme together,” said Program Specialist Michael Galaburri. “It was very successful; one of our better shows.”
The exhibit featured a mural created jointly by an intern and several Art Connection Studio artists. It was one of the largest pieces the studio has shown in an exhibit. The studio artists were also excited to include living artwork, art made using succulents and other organic material, in the show as hanging art and in terrariums.
The featured piece for Ebb & Flow, a fiber work by artist See Yang, represented a larger breadth of fiber artwork on display at the exhibition- including pillows and small tapestries. “We haven’t done much weaving yet, but the embroidery is really taking off for us,” Michael Galaburri said. There are plans to expand Art Connection’s offerings for this sector in the future.
