“Through Our Eyes: A Celebration of Local Black Artists” Artist Talk


Evening to feature several local Black artists

Friday, February 18th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Sterling House Community Center

Join Willie Scaife, curator of our current show, Through Our Eyes: A Celebration of Local Black Artists, for an “artists’ talk” at Sterling House Community Center on Friday, February 18th, the last day of the show.

“This is our first artist’s talk and we’re excited to give our artists a platform to speak about their work and their creative process.” says Mark Hannon, President of The Arts Alliance of Stratford.

The event will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 PM and includes a short meet and greet, followed by the artists’ talk, with planned time for attendees to chat with the artists and get one last look at the show.

“The show, which opened on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 17th, has drawn positive attention and reviews. After Governor Ned Lamont visited, one of our artists sold a piece.” Hannon  said, “This talk is a great opportunity for the community to come out and support local Black artists  during Black History Month.”

Strict CDC mask adherence and social distancing rules are in place for the evening.
