The artwork of Anita Gangi Balkun, a faculty member and teaching artist at CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts High School, Hartford. Reception: Monday, February 8, 6-8 p.m. February 8-25.
Balkun's art incorporates fiber and up-cycled materials. "I'm interested in textures and layers of content, which are often related to the history of the materials used in the assemblage," she said. Her work will be shown along with that of artists, Diana Lemcoff, a visual artist from Simsbury, and Tom Hlas of Norfolk, an abstract painter who works primarily in acrylics and mixed media.
