Spectrum Gallery and Artisans Store of Centerbrook presents its holiday show: Winter! Its Beauty and Secrets. With original artwork that uniquely features views of winter – both its beauty and challenges – the show explores how nature survives and even thrives in the harshest of seasons. The Gallery will display a 7 foot White Holiday Tree adorned with ornaments by local artisans.
On Fri, Dec. 8 (6:30-9pm) hosts a Holiday Body Painting and Ornament Making Event with performance artist Ana Ughetti who transforms a model into a Winter Nymph using body paint and makeup art. Enjoy wine and desserts and create a fun ornament from upcycled wine corks.
