Traveling Art Gallery has taken up space at Thomas J. Walsh Gallery at the Quick Center. TAG is part of the Montage Initiative, which offers space to impoverished artists around the globe.
TAG strives to have the exhibit make a statement, educating those who visit and at the same time the works are available for purchase. When each art piece is sold its mission of being an avenue as a source of income for the artists is fulfilled. The proceeds from each purchase goes to the artist; a portion is given to TAG which is then used for women who do not have the means to create, giving them the supplies they need to do so and providing the space to show and sell their creations, creating a cycle that continues to help others build a sustainable life, working for a living.
At the Regina Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University, “History of Woman” is on display in Thomas J. Walsh Gallery. Forty-five area artists and 143 art pieces are represented. A reception 5-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 14 will introduce the artists to the community.
All works are available for purchase, and know that with each piece purchased you have made a powerful statement by helping those who wish not to be in poverty but are striving to make a sustainable living.
