The Goodwill Art Studio & Gallery is an innovative fine arts program serving over 80 artists with disabilities and other barriers. This program offers the opportunity for creative self-expression, improved self-esteem, increased life satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment through encouragement and collaboration with professional artists. This process results in the creation of high quality artwork that is original and expressive. The artists gain recognition through exhibitions in local galleries, Goodwill Art Studio & Gallery exhibitions, the Goodwill Columbus website, and social media. Sales of artwork provide income for artists and help us to continue programming.
It’s that time of year when holidays take center stage. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or even Festivus, we want to see how you mark this special time.
We’d like to see how UA celebrates the season and we need your help. Send us your pictures of holiday lights, cookie decorations, table settings, wrappings and anything else creative you do during the month that displays your creativity and skill.
Message us on Twitter and Instagram using @uarthere, or add #uarthere to your posts and we’ll share your artistry with the rest of the UA community.
Works by Paul Weber, Kate Menke and Rebecca Rea
November 1-30, Reception November 4, 5-7pm
Three artists explore “vessels” in their work and the resulting pieces span a range of interpretations and techniques. In each case the artist infuses the work with his or her own symbolism and invites the viewer to look beyond the vessel itself and see what meaning it may contain.
