This collaboration will bring you Family Shelter Service art exhibit spotlighting the journey from domestic abuse to healing. Be sure to take the opportunity to see Family Shelter Service's "Behind Closed Doors" Art Exhibit, which will be displayed at Glenside Public Library from Wednesday, January 11th to Sunday, January 22nd.
This traveling art exhibit was assembled to commemorate Family Shelter Service's 35th anniversary of providing help and hope to victims of domestic violence, and has been hailed as "moving" and "powerful" by those individuals who have viewed it.
Eighteen pieces in a variety of mediums make up this juried exhibit featuring artworks that symbolize the tribulations endured by victims of domestic violence, as well as the triumphs of beginning a new life free of abuse. Each artwork is accompanied by an artist statement -- telling the story of these courageous individuals and their journey to safety and independence.
Family Shelter Service provides a wide variety of programs and services for individuals affected by domestic violence. For more information or to download a booklet of artworks, please visit www.familyshelterservice.org
