Dream Weavers: In 1995, Fay Chandler had a vision of making connections between artist and social service organizations in the community that lacked the funds to purchase art. 20 years later, we are celebrating the founding of The Art Connection and the success of Fay Chandler’s dream. This exhibition, Dream Weavers, highlights artistic visions and work that relates to hope and optimism and ideas that incorporate what artists celebrate and strive for today and for the future. The images can be political, social, environmental, science fiction, magical realism – there are no boundaries to dreaming!
