The Webs We Weave is the newest Clare Gallery installation and includes paintings by international artist Amy Hannum and poems by poets inspired by her Spiderweb Series. Ms. Hannum captures abandoned webs onto her canvas, making the web itself part of her medium, and during an artist talk in October will share her method for transferring the delicate web into her paintings.
Other poets included in the exhibition are: Joe Adomavicia, Eileen Albrizio, Steve Balkun, Tarringo T. Basile-Vaughan, Joanie DiMartino, Brent Terry, and Rhonda Ward.
The exhibit will be on view until Wednesday, October 31.
Clare Gallery is located in the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry at 285 Church Street, Hartford, CT. Free parking is across the street in Saint’s Lot. The entrance is handicapped accessible. Phone: (860) 756-4034.
