If you’re in the Hartford area, swing by the artists’ (closing) reception on Thursday, February 5, 4:30-6:30 for “Lost & Found – Fragments Assembling Realities,” at the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism Gallery. Artist/organizer John O’Donnell writes that the artists selected for the show “sift through their cultural, visual and physical surroundings to create new moments and objects from the collected fragments. These works assemble new realities through assorted ephemera, found photographs, dryer lint, personal memories and other compelling components.” My 130-slide PowerPoint project, “The Search for Moby Dicks,” is in the show, along with work by other Connecticut Commission fellowship recipients, including Pam Erickson, Bob Gluck, Linda Lindroth, Cynthia Beth Rubin, Susan Schultz, Rashmi Talpade and Claire Zoghb. Claire Zoghb will read a selection of poetry at 5:15 pm.
