Painting Possibilities: An Evening of Art
August 2, 2017
Please join us for a night of fine art, inspiration, and transformation August 2, 2017 from 6-9pm. At the Fascination Street Fine Art Gallery, you will be able to meet with the artists and hear their stories. There will be wine, beer, and hors d’oeuvres. $20 suggested donation. Please RSVP.
Art Restart, the social enterprise arm of The Gathering Place, is transforming the lives of women experiencing poverty and homelessness through art. On Wednesday, August 2 from 6-9pm, Art Restart artists will debut their work at the world-renowned Fascination Street Fine Art Gallery in Cherry Creek North.
The women exhibiting competed to do so among 100 Gathering Place/Art Restart artists. Through their original designs, they are achieving self-sufficiency by earning money through Art Restart’s sales of their work. “We exist to shine a light on the amazing talents of these women and encourage them to rediscover their independence through creative expression,” says Teresa Densmore, Director of Art Restart. “And through their art, we give businesses a social solution – a channel to use marketing dollars to demonstrate a commitment to community and social responsibility.”
Art Restart also will display its new holiday greeting card collection (NOW AVAILABLE) to make family, friends, business associates, customers and all those near-and-dear feel special. Through Art Restart, anyone can express holiday wishes with a purpose and help women experiencing poverty at the same time.
JOIN US! Learn about this simple social solution tool to extend your brand and touch your customers. And, see real proof of possibilities resulting from Art Restart and meet the artists. Special thanks to Aaron Lapedis and Fascination Street for generously hosting this red carpet event.
It will be a lovely evening of mingling, wonderful art, and heartwarming stories. To register for this free event at www.artrestart.org
About ART RESTART:
Art Restart is a social enterprise which sells original art in the form of greeting cards created by the artists of The Gathering Place. Our artists are women and transgender individuals who are experiencing homelessness or poverty. Each artist receives a 5% royalty when her cards are sold, an amount that is among the highest percentage when compared to the industry standard.
Art Restart has its roots in The Card Project, an initiative started by The Gathering Place more than 25 years ago. The Card Project sells individual handmade cards and distributes the profits to the artists as each card is sold. It offers the women opportunities for confidence-building, self-expression, and financial gain. The artwork touches the lives of both artist and customer and remains one of our strongest program offerings at The Gathering Place. Art Restart is a separate, social enterprise selling licensed original artwork in the form of cards by our artists. Art Restart orders are available in bulk only. Through Art Restart we are engaging in a new initiative to connect with a larger audience and tell our story.
