IN THE GALLERY

“A Connecticut Welcome” in the Gallery

Here’s a quick look at the incredible fiber art currently hanging in the GAC gallery created by twenty-two members of the Connecticut Region of the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). It will give you a good overview of the show, but as there is so much fine detail in each quilt, it’s worth a visit in person!

The exhibit runs from February 4 – March 5. The gallery is open 7 days a week, is free to enter and open to the community. Monday -Saturday, 10am-4pm, Sunday 12-4pm.

Please follow all GAC Covid protocols when visiting.
