The reception is on June 19, 6:30 – 8:30.

The second exhibit will be in Salem:
July 1 – July 31
Project Space
211 Commercial St. NE, Salem

“The work on display was created during two programs sponsored by The Art Center’s At-Risk Program, during which the young women worked with a poet and a photographer to create photo montages and a book of poetry and photographs. The work is powerful, and gives one a glimpse of these young women’s lives and their struglle to change them.” — Cheryl French,
At-Risk Youth Arts Education Coordinator
