Those of us who follow the Ward 5 arts scene know that Art Enables is a local powerhouse of positive vibes with a fantastic mission. The non-profit organization represents over thirty artists with developmental disabilities and provides them with the resources they need to become visual artists, and 60% of revenue from sales. However, Art Enables also has interesting and engaging art shows as part of its “Off Rhode Studio” shows. Their upcoming Off Rhode exhibit will be the third annual showcase of artists from Ward 5. Aley Hasson, Art Enables Gallery and Outreach Assistant told us:
It is Saturday, July 12th from 1-4 and there will be free pizza provided by &Pizza. Also, there will be an open studio workshop for people to try their hand at drawing and painting.
Hello? Local artists, hands-on workshops AND free pizza? This is the place to be! Hope to see lots of you there. Art Enables is located at 2204 Rhode Island Ave NE.
