Wonderful opening reception at our new gallery, Five Points Gallery, in town last night. Works by Power Boothe and Joe Fig. Good attendance and some very interesting pieces. I loved Power’s large red painting and was especially drawn to his smaller monoprints and ink sketches. Joe Fig is just beyond words. One must see his pieces to really get a feel for how much time and effort he has expended on them. They are just meticulous!

Saw lots of familiar faces and was reminded that as much as I want to leave this place, a lot of memories have been created here…lots of connections.

Hoping the people behind this new vision for Torrington are correct and that this former industrial town is poised for better things in the future. If last night’s opening is any sort of gauge of that, then we are headed in the right direction.
