Chi Consulting LLC Takes on Hartford Region Artist
17th Annual Open Studio Weekend in Hartford to be run by former Vice Chair of Board
Hartford, CT- After three and a half years of serving as Vice Chair of the Artists in Real Time Inc. board, Chi LaBossiere of Chi Consulting LLC, has stepped down in order to take on the role of the November 2006 Open Studio Event Coordinator.
Open Studio Weekend in Hartford has enabled up to 80 artists at locations all over the Hartford region, to open their studios twice a year to the public. In February 2003 Chi LaBossiere and 11 other individuals came together with the purpose of forming an organization to help run Open Studio Weekend and other art events. The result was Artists in Real Time, Inc., or ART – a 501c(3) dedicated to enhancing the enterprise, business expertise, technical resources, and public awareness of visual artists - primarily in the greater Hartford area - through events, programs, and partnerships with other artists, individuals, and private and public organizations.
“I’m looking forward to coordinating this year’s show,” said Chi LaBossiere, President of Chi Consulting LLC. “I have either been a participating artist, a volunteer, or a board member working to coordinate the show since 2000. I understand what the artists want and experience in this event. I am dedicated to making this event a success. It enriches our community.”
This year’s Open Studio Weekend in Hartford kicks-off with a reception on Thursday, November 2, from 6-8 pm at the ArtSpace Gallery at 555 Asylum Street in Hartford. The weekend event of open studios is Saturday and Sunday November 4 and 5, 11 am to 5 pm.
“We’re very happy to have Chi run this year’s event,” said Tom Nieman, Chair of Artists in Real Time. “I know I can rely on her to get the job done.”
