June 25 to September 4, 2015


Make.Art.Work. New Haven invites you to their Group Art Show. The Make.Art.Work. Group Art Show is an eclectic collection of artists’ visions and passions. Join us for the opening reception Thursday, July 9, from 5:00 to 7:00pm at The Arts Council of Greater New Haven’s Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery (70 Audubon St, 2nd Floor) and at Koffee? (104 Audubon St) from 5:00 to 9:00pm. The art show at the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery will be open to the public from June 25th to September 4th and at Koffee? during the month of July. Please refer to the venues for their hours. The Make.Art.Work. Group Art Show includes artwork from Corinne McManemin, Lee Walther, Ellen Hoverkamp, Elena Gerard, Ivan Tirado, Kiara Matos, Liz Grace, Vanessa Braucci, Cayla Lockwood, Linda Wingerter, and Beth Klingher.

Corinne McManemin’s Koi Paintings are colorful depictions of space and movement. Lee Walther is a Visionary/Creative who easily sees the multi-dimensional potential for many kinds of objects, images and materials and their relationship to each other. Lee creates and designs original pieces of ‘Functional Art’. Ellen Hoverkamp has been digitally capturing samples of nature using her flatbed photo scanner as a camera, since 1997. Dr. Ivan Tirado is inspired by the vivacity of the human body and influenced by the organic beauty of ‘Art Nouveau’. Kiara Matos´ work is based on her deep appreciation for highly skilled craftsmanship, Mid-Century Modern Design, Architecture and the endless joy she draws from observing the natural world. Liz Grace’s work is all about simplicity of line and saying all that can be said with the least amount of them – fluency with brush and gouache. Vanessa Braucci uses her camera to capture the forgotten beauty of nature and release it to the world. Beth Klingher uses natural materials – stone, pottery and tile – to create mosaics filled with textural patterns, mathematically based designs and abstract landscapes.

Make.Art.Work. is a comprehensive career training program for visual artists in Connecticut taking place in Fairfield, Hartford and New Haven counties that addresses essential business and entrepreneurial skills for artists within a supportive peer environment. Make.Art.Work is a collaborative program of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County and the Greater Hartford Arts Council, made possible with support from the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.


Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery, a program of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven, is located at the Arts Council offices at 70 Audubon Street, 2nd floor. The gallery features regional artists in group and thematic shows. Hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
