Shelter Network opens art gallery
Jun 15, 2011 - 12:50 PM
The work of painter James Reynolds and 25 other artists will be showcased at the Glen Ellen Village Art House Gallery
Glen Ellen Village Art House Gallery marks its grand opening with an open house from 1 to 6 p.m. on both June 18 and 19.
The work of 26 local professional artists will be displayed alongside complementary wine and appetizers. Additionally, there will be face painting for children as well as raffle drawings for original artwork as part of the festivities. The event is free of charge.
The new gallery is owned and operated by InterFaith Shelter Network (IFSN), a nonprofit organization that has been serving homeless people in Sonoma County for more than 20 years. A percentage of commissions from all artwork sold at the gallery goes directly IFSN's Transitional Housing Program.
The program provides transitional housing and critical support services, including comprehensive case-management, individual and group counseling, employment and benefit guidance, rehabilitation, education and skill-building services. IFSN clients participate in an Art Process Group as well, and the art produced by these individuals is for sale at the gallery.
Glen Ellen Art House Gallery is located at 13758 Arnold Drive, next to the Chauvet Hotel. For more information go to www.arthousegallery.ifsn.org
