Event Description

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents an exhibition of works by Connecticut artists Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani at Gallery 195 at First Niagara Bank, 195 Church St., 4th floor, New Haven. The exhibition will be on display during bank hours from September 14 through December 9, 2011. An artists’ reception is scheduled for Tuesday, September 13, from 5 to 7pm. The public is invited to attend.

 

The exhibit will feature paintings by Sharon Butler and Geoffrey Detrani.  The artists vividly render their works from Detrani’s energetic, linear “imaginative landscapes” to Butler’s juxtaposition of brilliant color against stark backgrounds.

Sharon works as an art professor for Eastern Connecticut State University and also maintains the award-winning art blog Two Coats of Paint, as well as contributing to numerous other publications. Her work has been included in galleries and exhibitions around the world.

A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.
