Feast your eyes and blow your mind with the most amazing art exhibition ever. Join us for a free community event on Monday, May 7 at 6 PM, celebrating the art of children and young adults with special needs (or “special abilities” as we prefer to call them). The Art of Friendship and Ability exhibition will feature original artwork created by the children and young adults of Friendship Circle and ZABS Place.

After many months of working on their creations, these special artists now invite the community to marvel at their work displayed in one of Charlotte’s most creative spaces, C3 Lab in South End. The creations will include: silkscreen paintings, sculpture, Jewish still art and photography. The event will also feature entertainment from the World’s Fastest Speed Painter, D. Westry, who will create unique painted portraits for our guests.

The joy a young artist receives from seeing their work go from concept to reality – hanging on a gallery wall, being admired by family, friends and the greater community – is priceless. This is the driving force behind this event and the mission of one of our sponsors, The Bear Givers Foundation. Your attendance will help ensure the success of this event.

Special thanks to the Bear Givers Foundation and the Empower Art Program for Partnering with us to make this exhibition possible.
