Description:  Featuring the works of emerging artists at the Hartford Art School

Hartford Art School at Open Studios Hartford showing work by over 50 students! The Hartford Art School participates in Open Studios Hartford with an exhibition and sale featuring new works by fifty Sophomore and Junior students in painting, drawing, illustration, photography, printmaking, ceramics, media arts, sculpture, visual communication design, foundation studies, and art history. These talented young artists present a broad range of works that reflect their exploration of theme, material, and media. Founded in 1877 by visionary and community-minded women, namely Harriet Beecher Stowe, Olivia Clemens, Elizabeth Colt, Susan Warner, and Mary Bushnell Cheney, the Hartford Art School educates the whole artist through rigorous studio-based disciplines in a liberal arts university setting. The Hartford Art School honors a dynamic balance between the traditional and emerging arts, reflecting an ever-changing world. With a history of educating creative practitioners and critical thinkers, we encourage our students to be proactive and to develop their unique artistic vision. Together we value the local and international communities and participate in culture at large. Nancy Stuart, Dean of the Hartford Art School said, “It gives me great satisfaction to foster student talent and growth through our faculty and programming. Creativity takes hard work, research, problem-solving, innovation, and a tolerance for risk-taking.” The students, faculty, and staff of the Hartford Art School are excited to be a part of this dynamic Open Studios Hartford weekend and to interact with professional artists, and engage with art loving audiences. Come by our exhibition at Colt Gateway! You will delight in the recent works these emerging artists are creating.
