Trees by Vincent Van Gogh

All of us have at least a little of the artist within us and we can all benefit from self-expression and sharing feelings. MHA provides encouragement and support to those who express themselves through art, as a means of staying healthy and sharing thoughts and feelings. There are many artists in our community who deserve the opportunity to display their work. They may draw or paint in the privacy of their own home. Some might work with fabric, weaving, quilting or creating collages. Or perhaps they use found objects to share their vision in sculpture, or use a camera as their tool. These unsung artists will have a chance to show their work and garner interest from the public at this show.

The only requirement to submit art work is that the artist be a resident of Niagara County. Everyone is welcome to have their art displayed. If you want more information about how to submit your work for display, or other facts about the show, just call the office at (716) 433.3780.
