February 26 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The New Canaan Library presents “Hand Work but Not Home Work: the Art of Liz Alpert Fay” on view in the Curtis Gallery from February 16 to March 26, 2017.
The work of Liz Alpert Fay, while exactingly crafted, pushes the boundaries of hooking by making it fine art. The artist will sit for months with an idea before beginning a new piece, thinking and feeling it through so that it will convey a message. Her work preserves something of the past as it also calls our attention to more contemporary concerns.
An opening reception will take place on Sunday, February 26, 3:00-5:00pm. A Q&A with the artist will begin at 3:30pm. All are welcome.
