Gathering among other people with a shared experience can sometimes bring out the budding artist in the unlikeliest of circumstances.
“They build you up spiritually—just saying that you can do it,” said Sevilla, whose recent burst of creativity hit canvass at the so-named Gathering Place, a Denver drop-in day center largely for women in poverty and their children. “They treat you like family, no matter where you are in your life.”
Fascination St. Fine Art Gallery will transform Aug. 2 into a space for emerging artists from Denver’s drop-in women’s center, The Gathering Place.
Darlina was a down-on-her-luck artist who needed some help paying for her daughter’s glasses 20 years ago when she discovered The Gathering Place, Denver’s drop-in center for women, their children and transgender people.
On Wednesday, August 2nd, Art Restart is hosting an exhibition at Fascination St. Fine Art gallery debuting artwork from women of The Gathering Place. Please join us as we meet and celebrate the artists over drinks and appetizers.
Art Restart provides a safe and encouraging space for the positive spirit of artistic expression to those who need it most--women experiencing poverty and homelessness. A place for creating amazing work while providing insight into the women who bring life to their art, Art Restart is a community for artists of The Gathering Place.
Join us next week for an Artist Opening Reception at Miracle Street Gallery featuring the artists of The Gathering Place and Art Restart!
