The annual "EXPRESSIONS" show and sale of work by clients by Birch Tree Communities is tonight at the Governor's Mansion. This year, there will be some 230 pieces of art for sale; artists get 100 percent of the proceeds.

Birch Tree Communities serves people with serious mental illness. Its art program is designed to promote self-confidence and a route to recovery. This year's sale will include selected works by clients of other programs as well and a live auction of works selected by jurors. There will be food, drink and live music.

The sale starts at 6 p.m. and tickets ($25) are available at the door. Go early, because there is always a long line and you want to get to your favorite work of art before someone else does! The event is over at 8 p.m.
