The exhibit features works from the 1930s to today by master artists, participants in the Prison Arts Program, and local college students.

Each artist produced consciously political art in response to specific events or circumstances; their work is characterized by figurative representations of people and actions.

A solo exhibition of new work by 2020 Real Art Ways award recipient Anne Wu will be at the gallery through Feb. 6.

The exhibit, titled “A Dream Walking,” comprises five vibrantly-hued sculptures that reference familiar architectural forms that evoke both a sense of place and no place at all: A railing grows from the ground, emerging upward before an abrupt end. A door opens, or closes, to nowhere in particular. A balcony hovers, the center of its base missing. A banister descends, edging towards the floor. A window cover clings to the wall, its beams extending beyond its frame.

Wu is a 2021-22 Studio Artist at Smack Mellon in Brooklyn, New York and winner of a Real Art award, which recognizes emerging artists living in New England, New Jersey, or New York.

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 4 to 9 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 2 to 9 p.m.

Real Art Ways is at 56 Arbor St., Hartford.
