Connecticut, home to a growing number of talented fiber and multi-media artists, has centuries of stories to tell.  Local Color: Connecticut Stories” is the second Connecticut-themed, juried exhibition organized by co-curators Diane Wright and Kate Themel and brought to life by Connecticut SAQA members.
