Pathway Homes’ Hosts 9th Annual Summer of the Arts Hybrid Exhibit
Showcases Artwork of Residents with Mental Health Struggles
Pathway Homes, Inc. is hosting its 9th Annual Summer of the Arts Exhibit—both in studio and online, where Pathway Homes’ residents who have mental health challenges showcase and sell their own art, poetry, and crafts. Pathway Homes is a nonprofit providing mental health services—starting with safe, stable housing—to individuals marginalized by poverty and inequity. Art and creativity are an integral part of recovery for Pathway Homes’ residents.
The exhibit also honors Karen Free, a Pathway Homes resident and artist who passed away in 2011. The exhibit will be held at the Vienna Arts Society and the artwork will also be featured online at sota.pathwayhomes.org. Artists receive 100 percent of the proceeds.
