The Village Project
March 1 – April 2, 2019
Opening Reception, Saturday, March 2, 2019, 3-5 p.m.
The Village Project installation is a community-created installation that will be on exhibit at CAW from March 1 to April 2nd, 2019. Created by artist Denise Minnerly (Norwalk, CT), in collaboration with Don Bracken (Cornwall Bridge, CT), the exhibition will feature handmade, floor-resting clay houses which form a village and a collection of hanging vines, assembled into a sculptural pod, which serves as an extension of the village.
Free reception on Saturday, March 2, 2019 at which Minnerly and Bracken will introduce their installation, inviting visitors to create their own interpretations of dwelling to add to the community over the course of the month.
There will be workshops and opportunities throughout March for visitors to come to CAW, work with clay to create their homes, then fire their pieces in CAW’s kilns. Once their work has been completed, visitors will add their home to the growing collective community centered in our gallery around Bracken’s organic sculptures made of Connecticut vines, roots, and dirt.

CAW is pleased to present the annual Arts Expo of the Southern Connecticut Conference, a league of 23 high schools throughout the state. Though the league is primarily linked through sports competition, the Arts Expo is a vital program, enriching the students’ overall high school experience. Each school nominates three artists to be featured in the exhibit; a jury of professional artists and art administrators, selected by CAW, award prizes to a select few at the opening reception.
