the dirt on the dirt salon

the dirt salon logoThe Dirt Salon is a new creative venture in Parkville, billing itself as “Hartford’s first and only art salon”. The space that once housed the RLF Home Design Center now houses a collection of galleries, a cabaret and artists studios. On Friday night, hundreds of visitors streamed in and out of the turn-of-the-century foundry building as The Dirt Salon hosted a grand opening soiree, aptly titled The Dirt Flirt. The photos below don’t do justice to the space, so next time they host an event, we encourage you to check it out for yourself. “Like” them on Facebook for more dirt on The Dirt Salon.

Artist Anne Cubberly and some of her sculptures can be found in one of the studios. The crown she is wearing will be used at this Friday’s CT Forum.

  1. Yet when it comes to originality and pure musical craftsmanship, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” is every bit as vibrant as when it was recorded in 1971. It leaps across space and time to seduce even the most urbane listener to enjoy heartfelt mountain music created in the souls of ordinary folks. It’s country music at its best: intimate, uncontrived and joyous. Hand me that washboard, will you, son?
