December Reception Photos

Thursday was the opening reception for all our new shows: the December All-Media Exhibit, “The Street Sense Project,” and the IMPART Ceramics Exhibit.

We had an amazing turnout, including many of the IMPART artists and their families. We also got to hear from solo artist Thien-Kim Pham and meet the award-winners in the all-media show.

Thank you to everyone who came out! If you missed the reception, we’re pleased to announce you’ll have another chance: there will be a closing reception for the IMPART exhibit on Sunday, January 5 at 2:00 pm.

We were honored to welcome wounded warrior artists from the IMPART program, as well as Jose Riojas, chief of staff of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Joe Courtney, a U.S. congressman from Connecticut. See below for photos from yesterday evening:
