The Greater Richmond ARC welcomes you to join us for our second annual art show. This year, we’ve opened the doors to submissions from all of our programs in all forms of media. See passion, energy, vibrancy and creativity manifest in art; see the joy this process of creating offers as individuals explore new ways to express themselves.
Director of Day Support Services Emily Lehmann said it has been exciting to see the enthusiasm for crafting projects to be in the show. For some, these projects provide another way to communicate. For others, it exposes them to new sensations and enables them to explore likes and dislikes.
One Day Support staff member with a background in art therapy has been conducting sessions at least once a week to produce some of the body of work for the show. She emphasized the lesson that art can help people share ideas. “Art is a way to show how we feel and what we think,” she said.
Look forward to an assortment of canvas paintings, drawings, collages and sculptures. Some pieces will be available for sale; proceeds of these sales will be given to the artist to use for program extras such as tickets for Flying Squirrels games or lunch out around town.
For more information, please contact Emily Lehmann, Director of Day support Services at the Greater Richmond ARC, at (804) 358-1874 or emily.lehmann@RichmondARC.org.
