In The Galleries: 'Peace in Nature' on display at airport
The Cultural Coalition is hosting the Art At the Airport fall exhibit “Peace in Nature,” a mixed media gallery exhibit of artwork created by Artreach, Inc.’s program members.
The exhibit is free and available to view through Nov. 15 at the Groton-New London Airport. An outdoor reception and walking tour of the exhibit will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 24.
“Peace in Nature” features original artwork that was published in the zine formatted volume “Creativity Heals: Art & Poetry by Artreach.” It will be the inaugural showing of this 2020 project following the pandemic postponement last year.
The Art At the Airport program’s purpose is to showcase the region’s uniqueness, history, industry, culture and geography through visual arts in the airport’s main terminal located at 155 Tower Ave. in Groton. The program is a partnership of the Cultural Coalition and the Connecticut Airport Authority, which manages and operates Groton-New London Airport.
The program’s newest partner, Groton Public Library, plans to host a companion event with Artreach during Mental Health Awareness Week in early October.
Groton-New London Airport’s terminal is open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily for public viewing of the exhibit. Parking is free. Face mask use and six-foot distancing protocols in effect.
