Walsh Art Gallery at Fairfield University joins the roster of more than 200 participants statewide with an invitation to the public to view "Bramble and Bramble: Remnants, Glyphs and Palimpsests." The event is a celebration of Connecticut's 375th anniversary. Admission to the exhibition is free and it is a presentation of the Arts & Minds season at Fairfield University. Refreshments will be served. "Bramble and Bramble" opens June 3 and runs through July 19.

The Saturday event offers Connecticut residents and visitors to the state an opportunity to participate in the rich culture offered by many venues statewide.

The Walsh Gallery's "Bramble and Bramble" exhibition features the work of Pamela and Frank Bramble who happen to be a married couple that lives in Conn. They share a passionate appreciation for the intrinsic value and unlimited potential time-altered surfaces provide in the exploration of serenity, the definition of the relationship between language and image and how one experiences art and its lasting impression. The work of each artist is unique and idiosyncratic in style and execution.

Connecticut Open House Day serves as a fun way for residents and visitors to discover - or rediscover - all that is accessible within the Nutmeg state.

Gallery hours are: Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday: Noon to 4 p.m. Closed Monday. The gallery is always open when performances occur at the Quick Center for the Arts.

Directions: Fairfield University is located off I-95, exit 22 at 1073 North Benson Road, Fairfield, CT 06824.
