It's a Gift!

My new favorite paintings:

The Ladybug by a local Somerville artist-



Acrylic paint on construction paper.



And this one, Untitled by Cledwyn Jones-





Mixed media on posterboard.
I bought these paintings at the It's A Gift gallery down the hill from my house. What's interesting about the artists is that they're both enrolled in a day program at the Walnut Street Center a nonprofit, human service agency that provides comprehensive support services to adults who have developmental disabilities. There are so many great pieces there- paintings, t-shirts, a children's book, handmade purses, collages, jewelry, greeting cards, you name it. It's really worth taking a trip over to have a look for yourself.

And buy something!! The prices are VERY reasonable and you'll be making one of these lucky artists incredibly happy...not to mention scoring a great piece of art for yourself.

Goes to show ya never can tell.
