New Arts Initiative and Art Gallery Opening in West Hartford!

The Golden Thread Gallery is pleased to announce a new, innovative nonprofit arts organization in the town of West Hartford. The Golden Thread, Inc. was established in 2013 with the mission of connecting the human spirit through the arts. Located at Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center at 303 Tunxis Road, The Golden Thread Gallery has created a beautiful and professional gallery space and established new and exciting ways to support artists. “Our goal is to inspire artists to create meaningful work that seeks to challenge, and educate the viewer, as well as provide a professional arts gallery where we will exhibit works of professional and emerging artists. The presenting artist is not only a part of an exhibit but acts in collaboration with other artists presenting their unique perspective on a unifying theme.” Kate Wilson, co- founder and Curator. The Golden Thread is the invisible, underlying, connector, which weaves together the spirit of humanity, revealing our differences while at the same time illuminating the very essence of what we have in common. The “golden” quality of this project dictates the art should reflect our higher nature; art that can and will uplift, inspire, challenge and provoke as well as unite the artists with one another, and with the viewer. The Golden Thread Gallery will regularly schedule inspirational exhibits, talks, lectures and workshops that will provide a wide and diverse perspective to creatively enhance and impact our faith through artistic exploration. “We are so pleased that the Golden Thread Gallery has chosen Holy Family for their home. Since we are now known for our professional and inspiring music ministry, this gallery will add a new visual dimension to further enhance the important work we do here, as well as open up Holy Family to a whole new group of visitors.” Father David Cinquegrani, Retreat Director. The Golden Thread Gallery will host “Paint the Grounds” a wine tasting and art auction on Thursday May 30th, 6-9 p.m. Opening for our first exhibit, “Stillness”, will take place on Saturday, September 14th, at 7 p.m. For more information, please contact us at 860-760-9766 or info@goldenthreadgallery.org
