Washington Art Association will be participating in Holiday in the Depot, an
annual celebration sponsored by the Washington Business Association in honor
of the season on Friday December 12 from 6 to 8 pm.

For the festivities: a booksigning of WAA¹s recently released Art & Food, a collection of art & recipes from nearly 100 Washington Art Association members. Cookbook author Susan
Purdy, former fashion designer Linda Allard, and ceramist Elizabeth
MacDonald, will be on hand for the evening to sign.

And, for Friday night only, we are inviting all children, 12 and under, to
pick a balloon.  Inside each balloon will be a hidden tag with a surprise $
value attached, which they can then use to purchase a gift from a select
group of items.

The gallery is located at 4 Bryan Plaza will be open for the season from
Tuesday through Saturday loam to 5 pm and Sunday from noon to 4pm.

All proceeds from the sale support the Washington Art Association.  For information or
directions, please call 860-868-2878

Suzan Scott Open Studio: 
Open Studio Holiday Hours:  Sunday December 14th, 1-5pm and by appointment. Come by and see the latest work to come out of my new home/studio here in the Northwest hills! 
I've relocated to 387 South Street, 3rd floor, in Litchfield CT. New location, new work, new explorations, new look. The light is different here. The views are magnificent and I am re-inspired, working from a new perspective with new vistas and new perceptions!
Already there are many new pieces, recently completed, and others still in process. There is a good selection of finished works, on paper and on canvas, framed and unframed, as well as a year's worth of Vitamin A smallworks to view.
Would love to see you on December 14th, 1-5pm. Viewing hours by appointment also, you are welcome to come by the studio at your convenience, simply call or message or email me to set up a time to stop in and view the work.


On display during normal Library hours, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Saturday.
