CATA At The Clark Draws A Crowd

Amy Krzanik reports from Williamstown. The Clark Art Institute’s Stone Hill Center hosted a large and happy crowd of supporters on Thursday night, April 10 as Community Access to the Arts (CATA) opened an exhibit of work by its A.R.T. students. The A.R.T., or Artistic Realization Technologies, program is a painting workshop for area adults with profound physical disabilities. Many of the students and their teachers were on hand to introduce the work and revel in its vibrant beauty. A bevy of unique gifts such as necklaces, magnets and other items emblazoned with the students’ work were for sale to help raise funds for the A.R.T. program. An after-party at Hops and Vines featured food from Deborah Gallagher Catering and guest bartenders, with all tips going to benefit CATA and its students.(Shown above: Executive Director Margaret Keller and Founding Director Sandy Newman.)
