The Art Trunk was part of the five-day mixed media art retreat at the Stamford Sheraton. The Art Is...You Mixed Media Retreats have been around for nearly ten years and stretch far and wide to California, Australia, and of course Connecticut. It was great to have one in my neck of the woods. The Atrium at the Sheraton was packed with displays from artists who were teaching at the retreat, mixed media suppliers, and a nice mix of artists from the surrounding states. I was excited to be in the artful mix.
