Please join us for an art exhibit and reception in The Stream at Edgewood College where we will be recognizing the works of more than a dozen individuals who took part in a 7-week art therapy program.

Refreshments will be served; artists will be on site to talk about what inspired them. Please click here for more information on parking and location of The Stream at Edgewood College.
