Exhibition Series - Remembering & Repurposing
Through January 2017
Remembering & Repurposing explores the preservation and recreation of memories and discarded materials into works of art from oil paintings to mixed media. The exhibition series, which includes five shows from established and emerging artists based in Connecticut, invites viewers to ponder the multiple histories of people and objects as they transform through time and space.
About 100 Pearl Street Gallery
Managed by the Greater Hartford Arts Council as part of its commitment to supporting and promoting the work of local artists, the 100 Pearl Street Gallery is home to contemporary art exhibits by established and emerging artists from our region. The gallery is one of downtown Hartford's "best kept secrets": a one-of-a-kind revolving exhibition space hiding behind a corporate façade.
Exhibitions represent a wide range of artistic styles—from paintings to photography, sculpture and site-specific installation—all entirely free of cost, reflecting the Arts Council's mission to make the arts accessible to everyone.
