SPECIAL FEATURE: BRUSH & BRUNCH
Fishing Around: Join Us as We Explore Repousse
Everyone can do this! Repousse – from the french word “to push forward.” This fun and very creative hand craft art involves making 2D decorative relief shapes by pushing from the front and back of metal. Your 16″ x 20″ art will then be colored in and matted. Join us for this fun activity, enjoy some delicious brunch and then shop the wonderful artist booths at Art at Ives. This project is brought to you by The Art Spot.
Patrons come back each year for a perfect day at the park – a juried art show with top notch artists, jazz music by the pond, and fun artist demos. Children’s crafts will also be featured making it a fun outing for the whole family!
Every year we are growing this show to showcase the top notch talent of artists from New England and beyond. Providing the perfect picturesque backdrop, Ives’ lush oasis of natural beauty on Danbury’s west side, hosts world-renowned artists in a wide variety of music and theater genres. The venue pays tribute to its storied roots in classical music while acknowledging the ongoing evolution of the art of live performance. The Ives is proud to work together creatively with many artists and community stakeholders such as the WCSU Art Department, Cultural Alliance of Western CT and Brookfield Craft Center to develop this show, envisioning and inspiring cultural enrichment for the entire family.
