May 8, 2007

Just in! We have secured two 10-person tours of the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, CT for Wednesday, October 3, 2007. In case you haven’t heard, the amazing Philip Jonson Glass House will open to the public for guided tours this summer and early fall only. When I spoke to the booking agent this morning, 80% of the tours had already been taken and October was our earliest possibility. Don’t miss out on this rare treat!

We will be booking a small luxury motorcoach to take us down to New Canaan for what I’m sure will be a glorious fall day. The guided walking tours are for ten at a time and take approximately an hour and a half each. While one set of us takes off for the 1:00pm tour, the others can stroll around the lovely town of New Canaan and take in the shops and restaurants. While the 2:00pm tour takes off, the first group can relax and enjoy the town. It should be a perfect day.

If you would like to read more about the Glass House, please visit their website at www.philipjohnsonglasshouse.org and read the wonderful article in this past Sunday’s New York Times.

More information and registration forms well be mailed out in the coming weeks so mark your calendars and join us for this exclusive peek at Philip Johnson’s amazing architecture.

Due to a scheduling squeeze, thanks to the very successful Hartford Art School gala, the graduating illustraton students lost out on their gallery space for their senior show up in the art school. Since we had no shows in the gallery, we offered our space for an unprecedented departmental show in the Joseloff. It’s not generally the sort of show we would have in the Joseloff, a student departmental show, that is, so the illustration students are going all out and taking full advantage of the space.

REEL ILLUSTRATION: A Red Carpet Premiere
opens this Saturday, May 5th with a movie-themed reception in the gallery from 5:30-8:30pm.

Today the installation begins and the job of organizing twenty-seven (that’s right twenty-seven) graduating seniors and their respective work looks like quite a task. Good luck to all of them.  Here’s a peek at how it looks so far.
