Art lovers throughout New England interact with artists and learn about their works through special programs throughout the year offered by the Hartford Art School galleries.
The Hartford Art School Galleries includes the Joseloff Gallery, the Donald and Linda Silpe Gallery, Kaman Print Study Center, and Art on Campus. These exhibition spaces inspire our community year-round, and engage with students daily through creative visual experiences.
Themes of resistance and resilience cut through the multidisciplinary work of Iranian artist Minoo Emami.
This retrospective exhibition highlights the artist’s early career as a self-taught painter, alongside experiments in sculpture, photography, printmaking, video, and installation art that come together to transform the trauma of war and oppression into objects of beauty and hope. Significantly, the exhibition will include new, never-before-seen work created over the past year in response to the ongoing Women’s Rights Movement in Iran.
The community is invited to visit Silpe Gallery on the following dates to engage in quilt making with the artist: Sept. 22, Sept. 23, Sept. 26, Sept. 30, Oct. 3, Oct. 11, Oct. 18, and Oct. 21. This will culminate in a performance and burning of the quilt on Nov. 11.
