August 11–September 22, 2019 (Meet the Artists on Sunday, August 18, 10:00–11:00am)
Our current exhibition is a collection of collaborative and individual artworks by the residents of Life Styles, Inc. in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Carol Hart, an artist recently featured in a Story Gallery exhibition, founded Life Styles in 1976 as an alternative to group homes and institutions that segregate individuals with disabilities from the community. Life Styles enthusiastically supports individuals with disabilities in reaching their full potential as contributing members of the community.
Life Styles offers a variety of visual arts classes allowing clients to explore the arts as a mode of self-expression. Professional and volunteer artists serve as instructors, assisting individuals with a variety of mediums such as painting, 3D, jewelry making, drawing, and collage. Artists of Life Styles host several exhibits throughout the community annually (look for an exhibition here in our gallery later this year!). Functioning like most art galleries, half of the proceeds is kept by the artist and the organization uses the other half to cover operational costs and art supplies.
