He is adjunct professor at Capital Community College and has exhibited extensively in New York, Connecticut and Massachusetts. “Along the Waterline,” the solo exhibit by photographer Richard Alan Cohen included abstract images of often worn boat hulls encrusted with the evidence of the past seasons sitting on cradles in boatyards. Many of these were shot in boatyards along the Connecticut coast. He graduated from Bowdoin College with a major in science and art, he went to Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and had a career in medical science.  Photography is now a full-time pursuit. The opening reception for all three shows is Saturday, June 2nd from 6:00-9:00 pm.  The reception including refreshments is free, and the public is warmly invited.  Cromwell is presenting an artist’s talk on Saturday, June 9th from 2:00-3:00 p.m. The galleries are free and open to the public Friday through Sunday from 1 to 5 PM.

Megan Craig: Artist Talk & Interactive Play

May 26 @ 4:00 pm
Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor Street
Hartford, CT 06106 United States
+ Google Map
Free

Artist Megan Craig will speak about her art and then lead participants on an informative and fun walk-through of her exhibition, Shields, focusing on her interactive works - wearable capes and a rearrangeable floor piece. Light refreshments will be served. Shields explores ideas about vulnerability, protection, blindness or obscured vision, and non-verbal/pictorial signification. The imagery stems from ancient Middle Eastern and African shields and armor (for humans as well as for animals in battle), but the work reflects a broad imagining of what shields might be, what they accomplish, and when and why they are used.

Love Never Dies (May 29 - June 3, 2018) The ultimate love story continues in Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s spellbinding sequel to The Phantom of the Opera. Ten years after disappearing from the Paris Opera House, The Phantom has a new life in New York where he lives amongst the joy rides and freak shows of Coney Island. Christine Daaé, now one of the world’s finest sopranos, is coming to perform in New York. In a final bid to win back Christine’s love, The Phantom lures her, Raoul, and their young son to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island… not knowing what is in store for them…. Described by The Australian as “The best thing Lloyd Webber has written in the quarter century since The Phantom of the Opera,” Love Never Dies is a dazzling new production, which takes audiences on a thrilling rollercoaster ride of intrigue, obsession, and romance.
