Chatfield Art Center hosts art center grand unveiling Saturday

September 30, 2018

CHATFIELD – The Chatfield Center for the Arts will unveil its new art studio to the community on Saturday.

During the summer, the United Methodist youth group tore down old cabinets, repaired walls and painted murals to make the space ready to host art classes.

Jenni Petersen-Brant, the CCA marketing director, said Saturday’s public event will help make the new space and its function familiar.

“This is an opportunity to share the space, filled with energy and creative potential,” she said. “We want people to get involved and know what it feels like inside. I’m excited about all the possibilities for connections.”

Held in conjunction with Arts & Heritage Day, the event will give the public the chance to work on two projects: glazing ceramics for the studio’s backsplash and painting collages for peace poles.

“We’re imaging what the space can inspire and getting people to think about what creativity, making and that thoughtful process can all mean for the facility and community.”
