"Expressions" is Thursday

The "Expressions" art show and sale of work by clients of Birch Tree Communities has become a huge event, filling the Arkansas Governor's Mansion ballroom to capacity. Here's why: the clients of Birch Tree are dealing with various forms of mental illness, and the agency's art program is helping them give expression to their thoughts. The result is naive, honest, highly original and colorful. Here's another good deal: The artists get to keep the dough.

This year's event, the 9th annual, is Thursday, April 28, from 6 to 8 p.m. Get in line early before the doors open so you can make sure you get the painting you want; there will be 250 to choose from. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased at the door. There will be libations, hors d'oeuvres, live music and a live auction of paintings judged to be the best in the show.

Birch Tree Communities is a private nonprofit organization serving over 400 Arkansans with serious and persistent mental illness throughout the state.
