Bellewood Boys’ Art Goes On Display
The young men at Bellewood’s residential campus in Bowling Green have much to brag about — their artwork is now on-display to the public in the gallery of the fellowship hall in The Presbyterian Church.
The gallery which changes each month to display a new portfolio of work from local and regional artists opened Sunday, August 15, with the finer works from the youth at Bellewood.
By funding through a $2,500 grant from Target, the males worked with resident artist, Monica Crawford, for more than a year creating various pieces in a number of media.
Through Ms. Crawford’s ongoing work, the boys were able to grasp a stronger understanding on the importance of art and self-expression at a time when cultural programs are dwindling in schools across the country.
Located at 1003 State Street, Bowling Green, KY 42101, the gallery is open to the public 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8:30 a.m. – noon on Sunday. All artwork is for sale at $25, and proceeds go back to Bellewood’s programming. The gallery will display the art until September 9.
