Recent Works - Sketchbook Project Exhibit

recentworks screenshot 2.pngThe All Access Art program at SoCCA presents an exhibit of artwork and sketchbooks in the Hopko Performance Hall Gallery, January 4 - 29, 2022.  More than 35 artworks mounted in the gallery and among the collection are twenty-five individual sketchbooks with hundreds of pages of drawings in a variety of media.  

This exhibit launches the 2022 Sketchbook Project - a community project offering Artists of all levels of experience the tools and support to keep active sketching practice.  With support from the The Bradley Henry Barnes & Leila Upson Barnes Memorial Trust and Jerry’s Artarama of West Hartford the All Access Art program invites family, friends and members to register and create in a sketchbook of their own.  The project includes an agenda of activities, a social media platform for virtual interactivity with community, and an exhibit of content artwork into late 2022.

SoCCA’s All Access program is a creative arts program dedicated to enhancing the lives of adults with neurodiversities and intellectual disabilities through artistic expression and exploration. A thriving multi-faceted program that reaches more than 50 individuals weekly, All Access engages professional artists who connect participants to their community, provide creative skills training, produce meaningful income and enhance their quality of life through the creative process.

Community Info Session 6.16 crop.png

RiseUP For Arts is partnering with 39 towns in Connecticut to create a large-scale mural for each year of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life by January 2022. Each mural will represent the messages, images, and symbols of Martin Luther King, Jr. and others who have made a difference in the pursuit for racial equity.

We are seeking the community’s input and participation to create one of these murals in Southington. We would like a broad representation of ideas for donated space for the mural, artists’ involvement, and most importantly the content. Who do you think has made a difference toward a more equitable and just world? What would you like portrayed in our town’s mural?

View the Info Session presentation slides HERE:

We invite you to take part in this art installation memorializing our commitment to racial equity and social justice. Learn more about the artistic inspiration behind this project and how other towns are acting on this opportunity with the above presentation from RiseUp Executive Director, Matt Conway.

Survey Coming Soon!
