From May 9 to July 10, the Farmington Main Library will host an art show curated by Douglas Hyland, Director of the New Britain Museum of American Art. The show will kick off with an opening gala with the artists present, taking place on Saturday, May 9, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Main Library at 6 Monteith Drive. This event is free and open to the public.

This exhibition marks beginning of a shift in art programming at the Farmington Libraries. This is part of an initiative to foster an understanding in the community that Farmington Libraries represent not only high quality literature, learning, and entertainment, but also high quality art. This and future shows will gather together diverse local talent in one place, allowing for a broader and more nuanced view of what the Connecticut art scene has to offer.

The items in the collection are for sale and will be on display in the Main Library’s Community Room until Friday, July 10, 2015. The exhibit can be viewed during the library’s operating hours. Because there are programs scheduled in the Community Room throughout the month, please contact the library in advance to check on the room’s availability.

The exhibition and opening gala are free and open to the public. If you plan on attending the Gala, please register in advance for this program by calling the library at 860-673-6791, using the online registration form, or visiting the Information Services Desk.

If you have special needs in order to attend library programs please contact the library in advance. The Farmington Library is part of the Farmington Village Green and Library Association.
