Culture Connect Featured Event
The Loft Artists Association will showcase the excitement and wonder of circus life with its first all-member exhibition of 2014, to be held in both their East and West galleries at 575 Pacific Street in Stamford.
An Opening Reception will launch “Under the Big Top” on Friday, February 7th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, and the exhibition will continue on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4:30 pm through Sunday, March 9th, 2014.
Chairman of the show Paul Larson says, “The circus is a great resource for artistic expression, from the barkers and the ballyhoo, the wild animals, the daredevils, acrobats, and of course the jugglers and clowns. Thirty of our artist members will contribute their interpretations of ‘the greatest show on earth’ in a variety of styles and media, and we look forward to sharing the magic and beauty that appeals to children of all ages.”
The Loft Artists Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building connections within Fairfield County’s visual arts community and exposing the general public to artists and their work.
Their grassroots events attract thousands of visitors throughout the tri-state area and have been recognized by funding agencies, including the Connecticut Commission on the Arts, corporate and private sponsors, the City of Stamford and by visitors who return year after year.
Admission and parking are free. (A donation is suggested.) Handicapped access is available on Saturday and Sunday. For directions and more information visit www.loftartists.com or call 203-323-4153.
