A trip to New Britain, CT.

I donned long pants and accompanied Ms. Rinnhofer to her opening at the
New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT on Sunday. Angelika thrilled the attendees with an impromptu demonstration of how she formulates her portraits with the assistance of volunteer model, Claire Oliver.
Angelika will be giving a gallery talk on June 12 at 6pm during the museum's monthly Art Happy Hour.

Prior to the opening we enjoyed a lovely brunch at the home of NBMAA director Douglas Hyland where we met Lisa Hoke who was taking a respite from her work on her installation in the museum's stairway/project space. Lisa's piece, The Gravity of Color is opening tonight with a reception from 5:30 to 8pm.

Above: some of the thousands of paper and plastic cups that make up Lisa's piece. Below: a view of the work in progress through the scaffolding.
