The CHS will host Open Studio Hartford as part of the 30th annual city-wide tour. This 2 day event will feature over a dozen artists from the West End and members of the Sewing Circle Project. Each artist will be present to offer their artwork for exhibit and sale during the two-day event.
This is the seventh year CHS has participated in the annual event that celebrates the vibrant local arts scene in Hartford.
Visitors to Open Studio can also explore the exhibition, Pieces of American History: Connecticut Quilts. This major exhibition explores the history, culture, and craft of quilt-making in Connecticut. About 30 stunning selections from the CHS’s approximately 150 quilts, ranging from the last quarter of the eighteenth century to the present day, will be displayed alongside costumes, photographs, and artifacts that illustrate the stories behind Connecticut quilters and quilting.
The CHS will offer free admission to its galleries. The CHS is located at 1 Elizabeth Street in Hartford.
