Trailer Box Project seeks participants to create hybrid monsters
"Chimera" Opening Reception at 5:00pm on Saturday March 19th
Danbury, CT - Trailer Box Project will introduce "Chimera" an interactive solo exhibition by Bethel artist Honorah O'Neill.  The hands-on exhibit, featuring life-sized creatures with mix and match parts, begins with an opening reception at 5:00pm on Saturday, March 19th, and will run through March 26th.

"As an artist, Honorah O'Neill often utilizes her anthropological background to bring fables and folktales to life," says Dana Walker, Director of Trailer Box Project.  "For her upcoming installation, O'Neill has harnessed the mythological Chimera of ancient Greece, a monstrous creature composed of the parts of more than one animal.  Combined with her love for the natural world and wry wit, the resulting sculptures are playful and humorous."

Honorah O'Neill, a painter and sculptor, studied at Ohio Wesleyan University and earned her degree in anthropology.  The owner of the Bethel Rainy Day Paperback Exchange bookstore, O'Neill has exhibited her works throughout Connecticut and has amassed a following in the greater Danbury area.  Her installation for Trailer Box Project will include animals such as a Bernese Mountain Dog, giant anteater and a velociraptor dressed in a variety of costumes, from Girl Scout to doctor.  Each creature is made up of separate parts that can be switched with other animals to make all new, imaginative hybrids.

Trailer Box Project, a project space and gallery in Danbury , Connecticut is dedicated to assisting groundbreaking artists in sharing their concepts with the public.

Members of the general public are invited to attend the opening reception on Saturday, March 19th from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Trailer Box Project, 15 Great Pasture Road, Unit 15 in Danbury.  Operating hours for the exhibition are Thursday through Saturday, from 12:00pm to 5:00pm, or by appointment.  For mor information, please contact the gallery at 203-797-0230 or visit the website at

Aqua Exhibit – Call for Artists
The City of Norwalk Parking Authority’s Maritime Garage Gallery is inviting submissions from artists, 18 and over, for a new exhibit at the Maritime Gallery, Aqua Exhibit, that will run from April 13 through July 8, 2016.
The exhibit, Aqua, will represent art that uses water as an inspiration.  With the 71% of the earth’s surface covered with water, we are constantly reminded of the beauty, the magic, the strength, and the importance of this substance. It is powerful yet fragile, peaceful yet tremendous, abundant yet scarce. Chosen artists will have their art on display in a separate gallery in a busy parking garage in the downtown area that has more than 1,500 people going in and out of it daily.
