VSA NEVADA presents “Works on Paper” art exhibit and reception
A collection of art work created by adults with disabilities displayed at the historic Lake Mansion in the month of May
Reception: Friday, May 10, 2013, 4 pm – 5:30pm
Exhibit: May 2 – 30, 2013, 9am – 4pm (Monday – Friday)
VSA Arts of Nevada is proud to present “Works on Paper,” an art exhibit of pieces created by the residents of Holdsworth Homes in Carson City, Nevada. The community is invited to an open-to-the-public artists’ reception on Friday, May 10, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the Lake Mansion’s main floor.
Gene Hughes, a teaching artist with VSA Arts of Nevada, has been teaching art to Holdsworth’s residents with intellectual disabilities. His teaching style emphasizes on bringing out the individual artistic expressions from each of his students. “This exhibit is a celebration of artistic talent,” Hughes said. “I hope it’s a validation that these artists are a part of the community. Hopefully, the community will come to receive them.”
