Connecticut is another winter destination for February that features many winter activities as well as several indoor educational and arts events that make your trip in February well rounded.

 

The Annual Associate Artist’s Show is held through February every year.   Associate Artists are invited to submit artwork and the annual exhibitions are to be hung in three front galleries.   The event contains a variety of art from including landscapes, still life, figurative, and other subjects.   The event is held at the Lyme Art Association in Old Lyme.

 

The Wonders of Winter is another event that is held in February at the Lyme Art Association.   This event is located in the Goodman Gallery.   The artwork celebrates winter life in New England.   Elected and Associate Artists are also welcome to exhibit their art but all work must be for sale.

 

In Hartford you will find the Annual Big Red for the Arts.   The food and wine event features samples from the Greater Hartford area’s best restaurants.   They feature wines from California’s Napa Valley, Tuscany and other worldly locations.   The event takes place at Joe Black’s Irish Pub.

The Mark Twain House is located in Hartford and is a great place to get out of the cold.   The house is Tiffany decorated and the place where he worked from 1874 to 1891.   Here he created The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.   The Mark Twain Museum is the “new wing” to the house.   The museum provides a deeper understanding of the man and the effect that he had on history.
