What: Work of heART art exhibit, to benefit Open Hearts Art Center.
Where: Satellite Gallery, 55 Broadway St.
When: Saturday, Feb. 9 through Friday, Feb. 22. Opening reception: Saturday, Feb. 9, 7-10 p.m.
Why: You've probably seen art by Open Hearts Art Center's adults with developmental, mental, physical and emotional disabilities around town. Hot-pink Michael Jackson tributes and brightly colored hearts have recently graced the walls of City Bakery, Homegrown and Rocky's Hot Chicken Shack, just to name a few locations. Now works by Open Hearts Art Center artists are coming to Satellite Gallery for the seventh annual Work of heART exhibit.
The show is more than a chance to see some of the most creative and eclectic work around. It's also a benefit for the Open Hearts Art Center, which "provides the unique opportunity for differently-abled adults to express themselves using a variety of creative avenues." The program encourages individuals to definite themselves with words like "skilled," "talented" and "gifted" through activities and exhibits that celebrate their imagination and abilities.
An opening reception will be held Saturday, Feb. 9, sponsored by Highland Brewing Company and David's Auto House. Expect a lively evening with enthusiastic artists and anyone who loves "expression in its purest form."
