HCRS 4th Annual Art Show

HCRS will be hosting a multidisciplinary art show at 118 Elliot in Brattleboro, Vermont, during the month of April. The artwork 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 our agency.

An opening reception will be held on Friday, April 7, from 5:30 to 8:30 pm, featuring live music performed by Shishka Bob and Gary. Light refreshments will be served.

HCRS welcomes the community to join us at the opening reception to celebrate creative expression through the arts. The community is also welcome to view the artwork during the following open hours at 118 Elliot: Fridays (April 14 & 21) 3:00-7:00 pm, Saturdays (April 8, 15, & 22) 12:00-4:00 pm, and Sundays (April 9, 16, & 23) 12:00-4:00 pm.

The annual show is coordinated by HCRS Case Manager, Jonathan Mattoon, who also offers art wellness for the people he supports. According to Jonathan, “We’re excited to be hosting our 4th annual art show this year. Art can be a very powerful tool for self-discovery and growth, and through meaning, give people an opportunity for greater connection in the community. The opportunity for these artists to display their work is one more step in achieving wellness and sharing with the community.”

HCRS’ CEO, George Karabakakis, Ph.D., states, “Jonathan’s passion for the arts led him to organize this month-long art exhibition. HCRS believes in the therapeutic value of creative expression and looks forward to seeing the creative artwork entered in the show this year.”

Jonathan concludes, “We hope you will join us as we celebrate creativity, the arts, and expression, and how these all synergize for overall wellness.”
