Extraordinary Facilities Joseph Fucigna included in the group show Extraordinary Facilities which celebrates 50 years of exhibitions at the John Slade Ely House Center for Contemporary Art.

Extraordinary Facilities is the first in a series of exhibits in 2011 celebrating the John Slade Ely House’s fifty years of presentation of visual arts exhibitions and cultural events to the greater New Haven region. A public reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, January 23, 2011 from 2-5pm. The reception is free and open to the public.

Extraordinary Facilities comprises a selection of artists who previously exhibited in curated exhibitions at the Ely House. Media include Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Photography, and Sculpture. Artists exhibiting were chosen for the facility and command of their art forms, achieving a level of excellence in melding their technique and style to subject matter. The exhibit offers the viewer interested in contemporary art a survey of some of the finest visual artists in the Greater New Haven region.

Subsequent exhibitions in the series will focus on Conceptual Art, New Media and Digital Art, Art in Context, as well as Traditional Art forms.
