ShawnaLee W. Kwashnak will be offering a Pet Portrait Demonstration during the reception for her Pet Portrait art show at the Prospect Library on Saturday April 22nd from 11-1pm.
Pandemic Portraiture: Reflections of Healing" is a CT FY22 grant-supported program taught by portraitist ShawnaLee Waterbury-Kwashnak to a select group of Connecticut youth artists who created portraits inspired by their witness of healing during the pandemic. The project culminated in a virtual art show and this book, which captures experiences during the midst of turmoil and will be of interest for historians for generations to come. It includes a section for readers to record their own reflections of healing.
This program was produced with the support of the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Portraits by ShawnaLee will be demonstrating a horse portrait in oils live during the Hidden Acres 10th annual Night of Caring event. Bid on the finished oil painting and bid on a Gift Certificate for a Pet Portrait!
