Art Cafes

Excitement can occur when artists come together to support one another in a friendly, stimulating environment they can exchange ideas, experiment, theorize, and grow. 

Since 2016 there has been one art café in the New London area. This group of 12+ artists meets regularly to discuss works in progress. We share information & ideas, discuss techniques, & support one another. Our forms of art are varied but we have become a close community. 

We are about to start a second CAFÉ
