“Crosscurrents,” an exhibit of the works of more than a dozen artists supported by CT Sea Grant, opened Jan. 24 at the Alexey Von Schlippe Gallery, located in The Branford House at the UConn Avery Point campus.
Connecticut Sea Grant is proud to present “Crosscurrents,” an exhibition of works created through CTSG’s Arts Support Awards Program over the last 10 years. Ground-breaking, multimedia works by 13 artists whose creations have enhanced awareness of Connecticut’s coastal environment and maritime heritage will be on display .
The Connecticut Sea Grant Arts Support Awards Program awards up to $1000 to an artist or group of artists through this competitive funding program. The winning submission will be selected on the basis of its aesthetic quality, relevance to coastal and marine environments and Connecticut Sea Grant themes, as well as its potential impact on non-traditional audiences.
Nine members of the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society visited UConn Avery Point on Sept. 9 at the invitation of Connecticut Sea Grant. The event is part of Sea Grant’s efforts to reach out to new groups during its 30th anniversary year celebration.
Two sculptural installations, one of illuminated right whales and another of found objects enhanced with printed photographic images, will be created by two artists selected to receive funding support under the 2018 Connecticut Sea Grant Arts Support Awards Program.
Selected paintings, photographs and other works from “Unfiltered: An Exhibition about Water,” are on display through early May at the Branford House at UConn Avery Point. The exhibit is a collaboration of several UConn departments and programs, including Connecticut Sea Grant.
