SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – HCRS announced today that they will be hosting a multidisciplinary art show at the River Garden in Brattleboro, Vt., during the month of March. The artwork that will be displayed comes from a vast array of talented artists, both classically trained and outsiders alike, who are part of the HCRS community. The show is expected to represent more than 50 artists who are employed and/or served by the nonprofit agency.
An opening reception will be held Friday, March 1, during Brattleboro’s First Friday Gallery Walk. The reception, which takes place from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, will feature live music performed by Linda and Pete Simoneaux of Bayou X, DJ DIGLIO, and Gary Graff.
HCRS welcomes the community to join them at the opening reception to celebrate creative expression through the arts. The community is also welcome to view the artwork anytime throughout the month of March, during regular open hours at the River Garden.
HCRS’ CEO, George Karabakakis, Ph.D., states, “Our art show was created in 2017 by two staff – Tristan Bridges and Jonathan Mattoon – whose passion for the arts has provided a venue for exhibiting the works of many artistic staff and clients. We believe in the therapeutic value of art which can enhance people’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.”
