The exhibit offers a window into the vibrant imagination of CATA artists and demonstrates the power of art to transcend difference.

Works are professionally matted and framed, and all pieces are available for sale, with proceeds providing commissions for individual artists. The curated exhibits feature a wide range of styles, including abstract and representational paintings and drawings, as well as work in printmaking, sculpture and collage, in a variety of media including acrylic, tempera, watercolor, oil and chalk pastel, charcoal, clay and mixed media.
