Bridget Grady MFA 2004

Bridget, owner of Blue Horse Arts Studio, and Jason Foster, owner of Foster Music of the JFosterMusic Studio complex located  in Watertown, CT hosted an interdisciplinary visual art and music event “Field Projects” to celebrate our connections to the natural world.

The opening exhibition was Friday, October 28th, 7PM- 9PM.  Foster says, “I have always been fascinated by the way a person or group of people can generate and organize sound into music that creates transformative experience for both the player and listener. In my humble opinion, music should be an integral part of every person's life whether they are performing it, listening to it, or both.”

 

The theme of the exhibition is to promote awareness of the connection between food, culture, and the environment, thinking globally and acting locally. The conceptual thread of this exhibition is based on the outreach and entanglement of artists, farmers, the environment, and community through mutual exchange.

Participating artists are Bridget Grady MFA '04, Watertown CT, Anne FlynnMFA '04, Old Saybrook CT; Matang Gonzales '86, Bethleham CT, Kathy Good, Providence RI; Bill Gusky, Canton CT;    Ginger Hanrahan MFA '07, Bethel, CT    Heidrun Morgan, Newtown CT; Kristie Holiday, Boston MA; and Georgia Sheron, Oakville CT. The show can be seen by request through December 1st, bgrady@bridgetgrady.com

Bridget says, “The artists participating in this event are working within two criteria. Firstly, to support local farmers by creating a piece inspired by and purchased at the Local Farmers Market. The rationale behind this is to support, at least symbolically, the Connecticut farmers who practice organic and sustainable agriculture on a local level. The second criterion is that the artists will donate a percentage of the sale of their work to the Local Food Bank. This donation benefits the community, the farmers, and the artists who participate in this project. Public attendance to this event brings the project full circle.”
