CALL FOR ARTISTS – – With a goal of creating Social Change In and Through the Arts, the Town of Manchester’s Department of Leisure, Family and Recreation, the Manchester Art Association, and the Galleries at WORK_SPACE invite artists to submit works related to the theme of togetherness:  Perspectives – We Are All Different, We Are All One.

Artists from the Greater Hartford region are invited to submit artwork that is expressive of the uniqueness, distinctiveness, creativity, and ingenuity of the group, or groups, with whom the artist identifies.

Each month, a local brewery and restaurant sponsor a tasting in our downtown art gallery, and then participate in a panel on their entrepreneurial journeys. This is a free networking opportunity for area professionals. 


Let’s discuss topics of professional & personal development. At this monthly networking event professionals gather to watch a TED Talk over lunch (BYO), discuss the topic, and then eat cake. Cake and beverages provided. This is a free networking opportunity for area professionals. 


WORK_SPACE’s second annual Holiday Shoppe will take place the week following Thanksgiving. This 3-day market will open on December 5th to coincide with both the Town of Manchester’s annual Tree Lighting on Main Street. We welcome a diverse and talented array of local artists to submit applications which will be accepted on a rolling basis until space is filled.
