Reception to meet the artists and view the new exhibition
Ashley Chimienti, Acrylic on Canvas
The center of this exhibit is the “Recycle Tree,” a large mixed-media installation that was conceived and designed by ArtReach Studios artists. As a group, they collaborated on a single idea that would reflect everyone’s mutual passion for protecting the environment while also resisting against the pernicious forces that threaten its health and longevity. The installation was hand-built from all recyclable materials and is a physical reminder that everything we consume has a direct connection to the natural world.
About the Arc: The Arc San Francisco is a lifelong learning center for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities serving over 700 clients in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties. Our two art programs, Howard Street and ArtReach Studios, promote the advancement of visual artists from The Arc SF through exploration, education, exhibitions and entrepreneurship. Our artists create fresh, powerful artwork that reveals not only innate ability, but also a point of view that is important and unique in our community. We believe it is important to connect with those who share our vision of promoting inclusion and diversity in our communities through art, and we hope you enjoy our work.
