The unfinished task of this exhibition is a reflection upon Abstract Painting; more to the point, it, focuses attention upon work by Women Artists whose contributions to the school of abstraction remains largely underappreciated and under-presented. The artists represented in Unfinished Task, like their predecessors, are intensely engaged individuals who defy categorizing; their painting ranges the gamut from meticulously thoughtful to gutsy exuberance. They are standard bearers in a struggle whose endgame as of yet remains somewhere in the distant future.

ArtWalk at Hartford Public Library, one of the largest and most stunning exhibition spaces in metropolitan Hartford, is seeking proposals from artists in Hartford county for exhibitions in 2016.

Situated on the third floor of the Downtown Library in a space that looks over historic Main Street, the gallery offers unique visibility and exposure, adding to the increasing vibrancy of Downtown Hartford. The ArtWalk hanging system’s movable hanging panels allow maximum flexibility for each show.

Two Roads is bringing back our “ConnArtists” art contest — We’re reaching out to drinking-age artists from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Vermont and Pennsylvania to help us celebrate our roots by creating a work of art depicting the scenes, people and places of Connecticut’s history, past and present.
The winner's art will be reproduced and displayed on a 30-foot high fermenter inside the brewery and they will receive $1,000 and a party at the brewery in their honor — where their gigantic art will be unveiled and toasted! Five runners-up will have their art featured at our party and receive a $250 check.
