CTFAC Reception at the Hartford Public Library - Romare Bearden Exhibit

A wonderful crowd of enthusiastic art lovers turned out for the reception last Saturday at the Hartford Public Library. We had such a good time chatting with everyone!
A gallery adjacent the stairwell was perfect for many of the works but many more were displayed in the beautiful glass showcases in the hall adjacent the History Center.

Here we are from left to right: Mary Lachman, Carol R. Eaton, Edjohnetta Miller, Christina Blais, Linda Miller, Joe from HPL, Karen Loprete, Carol Vinick, Antonia Torres, Rosalind Spann

Karen Ruskin read her original poetry during the formal reception while Antonia Torres and Rosalind Spann looked on.
