September 2, 2017 | 6PM-9PM

Join us on September 2nd at our Studio + Gallery for this month’s First Saturday Arts & Music at Wedgewood/Houston Art Crawl. This is a great opportunity to shop for friends and loved ones, while meeting and making an impact in the lives of artists overcoming homelessness. In addition to being provided all of the art supplies, studio space, and exhibition costs, our artists receive 60% commission of original artwork and 25% of prints and merchandise.

ATTEND + MAKE AN IMPACT2016-12-21-6

Volunteering and purchasing artwork are wonderful ways to invest in our artists, but sometimes the best way to make an impact is even easier. Our artists THRIVE during our First Saturday Art Crawls when members of the Nashville community show up and shower them with encouragement. Many of our artists live in constant survival-mode, and our art crawls are ways of providing a space for our artists to feel security, confidence, and inspiration.  These are critical emotional needs that help our artists continue to choose success for themselves. Organize a group from church, grab your friends, or invite your family to attend. This is a perfect opportunity to make an impact and spend time with those you love.

Finish the art crawl by stopping by the rest of the wonderful Wedgewood-Houston galleries.
