The Washington Art Association & Gallery is thrilled to announce the return of their 9th annual Summer Solstice Festival. Since 2008, this vibrant celebration of art and community has been the social event of the season in the Litchfield Hills.
Artists, collectors, celebrities and revelers come from near and far to enjoy a tropical summer evening while contributing to a great cause. Delicious food, music, drink and décor with a Caribbean theme transform WAA into a carnival of the senses. As if that wasn’t enough, WAA’s Atelier Sale takes place concurrently, filling our galleries with exceptional affordable art. Atelier is a sale that is much anticipated by collectors, members and interior designers.
Each year the renowned “Mojito King” and “Soul of Solstice,” Abdo Ballester, draws crowds with his signature Mojitos. Accomplished designers lend their talents to decorate our galleries and turn our terrace into a Caribbean escape. Ginga Brasileira will perform their unique blend of Samba and Capoeira and Ochun will play live Cuban music. As always, it is truly a night to remember!
All proceeds from Summer Solstice directly support WAA programming for studio classes and workshops, innovative exhibitions and special events.
