Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium | Takoma Park
AdvertisementIn a celebration of Veterans Day, a group of "warrior artists" will speak about their many years of honorable military service, the hardships they have endured, and how creating art has helped them heal from past wounds of both body and spirit.
The artist talk is part of the Uniting US art exhibition now on display at the Takoma Park Community Center featuring more than 70 pieces of artwork created by 32 active military, veterans, or family members from across the country. The compelling work includes paintings, sculpture, wood carving, pottery, and mixed media. The artwork is for sale with all proceeds benefitting the artists.
Puzzles also will be available to purchase featuring artwork by three veteran artists, including Maria Carrion, Christina Polosky, and Bethany Ryan. Their featured artwork also is on display in the Community Center.
Uniting US is a nonprofit organization which works with veterans and their families to create therapeutic art and build a sense of community. You can learn more at unitingus.org.
