We have yet to make a visit to Paris In Plantsville, a new-ish gallery that we've been hearing a lot about lately. We've become aware of a few resident artists through their attendance and participation in recent events at Artspace Hartford, The MAC 650 Gallery, and the Charter Oak Cultural Center, and are interested to see what they have going on in ol' scenic Plantsville.

(UPDATE: Because the weather continues to ruin everything, REBIRTHDAY has been rescheduled to Sunday, February 20th. See you there!) Paris In Plantsville will celebrate it's first year in operation with an event titled REBIRTHDAY, a juried group show and breast cancer fundraiser. They are asking for a $10 donation from non-members; there will be live jazz and a modern dance performance by Rachel Ryan (we tried googling her to find a link for you, but only came up with a porn actress of that name- we cannot make any promises either way). The opening goes from 6:00 to 10:00pm.
Another event that has caught our attention is the screening of Josh and Todd: A Story of a Man and His Puppet, which will premiere at Paris In Plantsville on February 19th. We love indie films, we love puppets, we love puppet nudity, and we think this will be a lot of fun.
The filmmakers and actors will be doing a Q&A right after the movie, for those of us who want to learn more about micro-budget filmmaking, working with puppets, or anything else you want to know. The movie starts at 8pm.
