To mark the closing of our exhibit, Passing It On: Traditional Arts Apprenticeships, we invite you to a celebration featuring participants in the Southern New England Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program.
The program will include performances by Irish dancer Kevin Doyle accompanied by fiddler Dan Foster, members of Mariachi Mexico Antiguo, Tibetan painters and weavers, and Norwegian artist Eldrid Arntzen. In addition, it will feature a book signing with the authors of Folk Masters: A Portrait of America, which includes profiles of several artists featured in our exhibit.
The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Galleries will be open before and during the event.
The Southern New England Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program connects masters of a folk or traditional art form with qualified students to teach artistic skills and cultural knowledge through the classic apprenticeship model of regular, informal, intensive one-on-one learning over several months. The program knits together artists from the same ethnic or occupational group across state lines to share traditions and stimulate new learning. Find out more
The exhibit and public events are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Connecticut Office of the Arts/DECD, and the Edward C. and Ann T. Roberts Foundation.
