Arts@Clark! Exhibit – July 2024

The Fifth Annual Outdoor Art Exhibit featured many of the same wonderful elements as the previous Exhibits, with a huge variety of artstyles and techniques on display – from paintings and drawings to sculptures and installations – and the artists engaging with visitors. This year, visitors were also encouraged to experiment with the creative process themselves in a “plein air” art activity, following the tradition of our famous Connecticut art colonies, and browse our newly expanded collection of art books! Visitors were also able to enjoy live music provided by local musicians Robert Boettger, Ron Guerrette, Jim Monesano, and Timothy Quinn and purchase delicious snacks provided by the Friends of the Library.
