Local Salon Holds Art Exhibit

Artist Deka Henry hosted a pop art exhibit at Manchester hair salon Beauty by Dezign.

The exhibit, "Pieces of Me," was held on Aug. 18.

Henry is self-taught and learned some techniques from YouTube. She began painting as a hobby after she transferred from UConn Storrs to the West Hartford campus.

The Hartford resident said she hopes to work with children and provide a creative outlet for underprivileged youth.

Salon owner Dana Hebert said she hosted the event to provide an outlet for young people.
