$10,000 small business loan
Connexions is an art gallery owned by Alice Kwiatkowski and her partner, business manager and working artist, Anthony Marraccini. It has been in operation since 1990 offering a wide selection of fine art (painting, sculpture, crafts) from some of the regions most well-known artists, as well as some moderately priced antiques. The rear of the property features a revamped sculpture garden that has become a frequent venue for events and meetings held by organizations and elected officials, as well as poetry nights, acoustic performances, artists’ lectures and catered events.
Financing from The Rising Tide Community Loan Fund financed inventory, advertising, and the renewal of the sculpture garden for Connexions.
