About the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut
Since 2008, The Accessible Art Project has been a successful collaboration of the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut and various public and private venues in Western CT. The initiative offers a series of art exhibits throughout the year. This year, the Accessible Art Project returns in June 2021 to offer a unique opportunity to exhibit work at the bucolic outdoor setting of Aquila’s Nest Vineyards.

About Aquila’s Nest Vineyards 
Perched on a hilltop in the Sandy Hook section of Newtown, Aquila’s Nest Vineyards is an innovative family-owned winery, tasting room and event venue. The 41-acre experience-focused winery intermingles mythology, art and wine to define the guest experience.

Curator, Amy Salerno, Pawling, NY 

“As we welcome Spring we consider the nests that we have built and found shelter, protection and comfort within. Similarly, we appreciate the hopefulness of migration- as it means to move with the seasons. Artists from Western Connecticut and the Hudson Valleys of New York interpret these themes both literally and figuratively in their sculptural work, expressing how we coexist within the natural world. This exhibit is hosted in the spectacular outdoor overlook of Aquila’s Nest Vineyards in Newtown, CT. This inaugural partnership between The Cultural Arts Alliance of Western Connecticut and Aquila’s Nest Vineyards celebrates the visionary work of artists in our communities.”
