I Belong Here - Art of the Shaw Community 
May 1 - 31, 2015
Opening Reception at Touchstone Gallery 901 New York Ave NW Washington, DC: Friday, May 1, 6-8:30pm 

In January, March and April 2015 Touchstone Gallery artists, Paula Lantz, David Beers, Shelley Lowenstein, Mary D. Ott and Judy Giuliani worked with youth and adults at New Community ArtSpace to create works of art in a variety of media through a program called Touchstone@ArtSpace. A vibrant selection of the work produced during those workshops will be on display at the Touchstone Gallery through the end of May. Touchstone@ArtSpace is supported by a Community Arts Project grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and by the Touchstone Foundation for the Arts.
