Encounters: U.S. Constitution
Hartford History Center, 3rd Fl.
Hartford Public Library, 500 Main Street, Hartford

Read the U.S. Constitution here: http://constitutionus.com/
Join community members in critical small group discussion about the U.S. Constitution. Feeling disconnected and uncertain about what’s going on in Washington? It’s a good time to brush up on this critical American document.

The Encounters series is a public discussion program created by a partnership with the Hartford History Center at Hartford Public Library, UConn’s Humanities Institute, and the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. The partners provide discussion leaders to engage in topics aimed at strengthening our ability to know ourselves and one another through respectful and challenging dialogue. Please read the U.S. Constitution prior to the event: http://constitutionus.com/

Meet the Artist 6-9 pm

Artist Statement:

I paint with wax and oil paint. Sometimes it goes on hot. The heating mixture emits heady fumes. Using old parts to weld up shapes, heating and pressing them into the surface. These brands melt the top layer and let the color underneath show, but leave a mark on the painting like a wound. I like the cruelty of that. Sometimes the wax goes on cold, 
sealed with a torch to affect its finish and transparency.

Gallery Hours:
Friday Nights 'Meet the Artist' Receptions 6-9 pm

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 29th, 7-10pm | Exhibition runs until May 27th
Members-only private preview from 6-7pm.
Every member of the U.S. Armed Forces and their family members embark on a journey of experiences that are both shared by many, and specific to each individual. Those experiences can be complex and enduring–perhaps lifelong. Their impact and intensity may be hard to grasp for those outside the Armed Forces community.
The “Journeys Onward” exhibition of 2D and 3D artworks, accompanied by the artists’ written words, reflects the military experiences of veterans or their family members. It creates an opportunity and forum for artists to share a personal expression of their past journeys, and those that may take them onward. Many veterans and their families want to tell their stories, but those conversations can be difficult to start. Often, art can be the starting place.
Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of film screenings followed by an audience-involved discussion.
