City Lights Gallery yesterday had its scheduled artists’ reception right downtown and in the center of the storm. Or, that is, in the center of the storm damage, on Markle Court.
Half a block away, crews were clearing damage. Her next-door neighbor in the same building, Tiago’s Cafe, lost its plate glass window, shards of glass splayed all over State Street. The mayor declared a 5:30 curfew to clear the wat for cleanup crews.
The Women’s Caucus exhibit, featuring female artists from throughout Connecticut, runs through July 24.
“A hearty bunch made it to the opening,” gallery director Suzanne Kachmar said on Facebook. “It’s a nice show with a broad range of mediums: painting, prints, photoagraphy, encaustic, assemblage. constructions.”
