MEDIA, PA (November 1, 2016) — Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line will continue the community’s popular and long running Artist Spotlight Series in November with the exhibit “Making Waves, Movement, and Motion” featuring work in drawing and painting in multiple media by artists from the Center for Creative Works. The display, which runs from November 1 to November 30, is open to Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line residents and visitors all month long. Additionally, there will be an reception on Monday, November 7 at 1 pm, followed by a reception.
The Center for Creative Works is a unique, arts-based vocational program for adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. With a full art studio, ceramic workshop, wood shop and printmaking shop, artists are given an atmosphere to use new materials and learn art making skills and techniques. The program provides tools for participants to develop valuable artistic skills, but interpersonal skills as well. Artists are encouraged to build portfolios, and exhibit and sell their work.
“We are honored to have this exhibit featured in our Artist Spotlight series,” said Linda Sterthous, Executive Director of Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line. “We love the idea of the art not only being of value visually, but knowing that the creation of each piece is therapeutic in nature to the artist, makes it even more special.”
The Artist Spotlight Series remains a popular community benefit since its introduction in 2012. It was originally created to enable Wesley Enhanced Living Main Line residents to experience art right in their own community. The program has since grown into a robust and highly anticipated community event each month.
