Summer Solstice 2017
The Washington Art Association & Gallery is thrilled to announce that our 9th annual Summer Solstice Festival will take place on June 17, 2017 from 6 – 9pm. Since 2008, this vibrant celebration of art and community has been the social event of the season in the Litchfield Hills.
Actress Christine Baranski will the Honorary Chairperson for this year's Summer Solstice.
All proceeds from Summer Solstice directly support WAA programming for studio classes and workshops, innovative exhibitions and special events.
Artists, collectors, celebrities and revelers come from near and far to enjoy a tropical summer evening while contributing to a great cause. Delicious food, music, drink and décor with a Caribbean theme transform WAA into a carnival of the senses. As if that wasn’t enough, WAA’s Atelier Sale takes place concurrently, filling our galleries with exceptional affordable art. Atelier is a sale that is much anticipated by collectors, members and interior designers.
Each year our renowned “Mojito King” and “Soul of Solstice,” Abdo Ballester, draws crowds with his signature Mojitos. Accomplished designers lend their talents to decorate our galleries and turn our terrace into a Caribbean escape. Ginga Brasileira will perform their unique blend of Samba and Capoeira and Ochun will play live Cuban music. As always, it is truly a night to remember!
Tickets for the event are $50 and may be purchased below or by calling the Washington Art Association: 860.868.2878 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org
