Making a Mark: 6th Annual Art Exhibition & Sale

Making a Mark is about enabling gifted people to celebrate self-expression and empowerment through creativity. Marks and lines are fundamental elements of art used to extend one's expressive vocabulary. Marks like building blocks, are individual and discrete, descriptive, conceptual, and symbolic in nature; can be used to render almost any visual effect. The way in which we make marks in large measure determines our personal style. Think of your own signature. The way in which you form the letters which comprise your name is a unique set of marks with legal and psychological significance. Artists refine their personal vocabulary of marks to develop their individual styles.

You will be treated to bluegrass, olde-tyme, country, and mountain music as the group plays mountain dulcimer, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and guitar – and the occasional washboard! There will be a break for refreshments midway through the event. Tickets for this concert are $10 and available at the door. A fully accessible entrance is located on the north side of the building off Seymour Street. Proceeds benefit the Willard Memorial Chapel.
