Press release from Rough Around the Edges

Passion is the theme of this year’s artistic event, Rough Around the Edges, curated by Sarah McKay. This vibrantly colorful and eclectic event brings together some of the most talented and prolific native Connecticut artists, along with invited guest artists from both coasts. The annual Rough Around The Edges show has appeared and been acclaimed as one of the Hartford Courant's top picks in 2011.

Narrative paintings, figurative drawings and prints, abstract and moody works in addition to some thought-provoking and fun sculptures, photography, short art films, an installation and more combine to make this event yet another potential sell out and well-attended opening.

The opening reception features a filled evening of live music both indoors and outdoors, including folk, instrumental world fusion, and psychedelic dream-rock featuring John Parson, Heirlooms and String Theorie adding to the unique flavor of the show. Keep an eye out for the opening night ever-popular Lucky Taco Truck bringing Tex-Mex pork carnitas tacos, beef picadillo tacos, portabella fajitas and tasty burritos to the Windsor Art Center!

Those who appreciate art, self-expression and the creative process will not want to miss this exciting, albeit rough around the edges creative project. Find out what passion looks like this summer. So get off your computer, get out of the house and join some of your fellow humans and explore the essence of humanity, anti-apathy and sincerity. Some of the local artists include Matthew Rubino, Alivia Atwood, John O’Donnell and Andre Rochester. Our special guest artists include Christopher Creath (Portland, Oregon—see his image "Where Thoughts Go"), Alexia Lalande, Elizabeth Dargie and Carlos Fonts (Boston, Massachusetts).

50% of all proceeds from the silent auction will go to the Windsor Art Center, a non-profit organization fostering visual and performing arts in the community.
