We are very excited to announce the official launch of Works of Arc – our online art gallery and store featuring the work of Indiana artists with developmental disabilities.
When you visit www.worksofarc.com
you will be amazed at the wonderful art that is there. Each incredible piece of
art is unique and handmade. The pieces are quite varied, featuring the artists'
wide variety of mediums and talent.
You might be asking yourself why in the world has The Arc launched an art store? The answer is simple – The Blueprint for Change. One of the key principals of the blueprint is employment. Works of Arc provides a path to employment.
Currently we have a beautiful set of note cards featuring four water color designs by Jessica Green. Each set contains 8 cards (2 of each print) and 9 envelopes.
We also have several mosaics by Carolyn Abbitt and Tasia Taier-Geser. If you have ever visited The Arc of Indiana office you have seen several of these wonderful pieces hanging on our walls. The colors are bright, the attention to detail amazing and they are fun!
Lisa Thacker has several mixed media pieces on the site including several from her series on the study of clouds. When you look at the shades of blue and cream you can almost see the clouds forming in the sky. She also has some other amazing pieces on the site.
Soon to come – photo frames, beaded jewelry, photography and so much more. Over the coming weeks, we will be adding additional pieces, so be sure to check back often.
