The Windsor Art Center presents Women Artists Collective 11th Annual Holiday Show & Sale. This exhibition, which runs through December 17, is a compilation of artworks by a group of 38 visual artists in Connecticut who come together to energize and support each other in the creative process. They are painters, printmakers, potters, quilters, fiber artists, and jewelers, and work in glass, ink, paint, clay, fabrics, canvas, found objects and paper. Art works range from abstract, representational, metaphoric, to narrative; and includes figurative subjects, among others.
