Beginning May 12, the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, will feature the exhibit New Beginnings, a group show by Canaan Art League featuring painting, photography and sculpture. A reception with refreshments for the artists will be held on Friday May 12 from 5 to 7 pm and the exhibit will be on display through June 10. This event is free and open to the public. A portion of the sales will benefit the library.
Canaan Art League was started in 2008 by five friends who were looking for a place to be creative. The Congregational Church in East Canaan was such a place. Eventually the group grew from five to twenty and more. They meet once a week on Wednesday afternoon. Contact the group for more information at 860-824-0124.
