Press release from Frame to Please
As a keynote to Mental Health Awareness Week in early October, members of nonprofit organization Shore House will display their artistic talents at an “Art of Recovery” exhibit presented by Art from the Heart, the charitable endeavor established by the owners of Frame to Please.
Hosted at the gallery space inside the Galleria building (2 Bridge Avenue, corner of West Front Street) the exhibit opens with a public-welcome reception on Sunday, October 2 from 12 to 3 p.m., and remains on display through the end of January 2017.
A variety of drawings, paintings and works in other media will be highlighted from the members of the Long Branch-based Shore House, an organization dedicated to providing resources and supportive services to people with mental illness so that they may have a fulfilling life, including access to employment, education, housing, health care, and the opportunity to be productive, contributing members of their community.
The exhibit will mark the fifth annual collaboration with “Art From the Heart,” the project by which the owners of Frame to Please have provided a gallery space where artists can connect with their favorite charity. New this year, several participants will be creating art during the opening reception, with attendees enjoying the opportunity to speak with the artists as they watch brush strokes take the form of the artist’s imagination before their eyes.
