The Newington Art League will be vacating the second floor of 679 Willard Ave. in Newington so that the town can use the apartment we occupied for a caretaker.
We have rented the Ceramics Room at the Newington Senior and Disabled Center so that we can continue our meetings with artist demonstrations, but we cannot currently support our mission to provide a creative venue for artist to practice their craft.
We are working with Newington Parks and Recreation to see if their Arts and Crafts room can be used by our Monday morning painting group starting on August 22nd, but that has yet to be confirmed.
Our Treasurer posted on Facebooks “What’s happening in Newington” and several ideas came forth including a generous offer from Garrett Kenny to use his barber shop during off hours.
Any help in finding a new permanent home would be much appreciated.
