Art Connection Studio
Medium: Painting, mixed media, fiber arts, jewelry
Description: A nonprofit studio and gallery providing vocational programs in art
Opening in 2011, Art Connection Studio began as a therapeutically based vocational arts program of Vinfen Corporation of Connecticut, giving adult individuals with intellectual disabilities opportunities to create and sell artworks in the studio and gallery space. The gallery currently displays various works in painting, drawing, mixed media, creative photography, jewelry, wearable accessories, and fiber arts. We host three art shows per year as well as exhibit works in other venues throughout the Hartford area. At the heart of our mission is the belief that positive and nurturing relationships are a powerful agent for growth and healing. We celebrate the creative spirit and benefits of art-making to transform lives and bring people together.
