"Spark!" event on Oct. 22
Golden Thread Gallery, inside the Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center at 303 Tunxis Road in Farmington, will hold another "Spark! Ignite the Arts" event on Wednesday, Oct. 22, beginning at 6 p.m.
At the event, everyone plays $15 to eat a light supper and either present an art project idea or listen to everyone else's ideas. At the end of the presentations, everyone at the event votes on the best presentation, and that winner gets all the proceeds from the evening.
If needed, public approvals must be in place to receive funding. Artists must register their idea by Monday, Oct. 20, at www.goldenthreadgallery.org. (Handout /October 20, 2014)
