Cross­roads Com­mu­nity clients dis­play art­work

Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — For more than 30 years, Cross­roads Com­mu­nity has been of­fer­ing hope to in­di­vid­u­als with be­hav­ioral health chal­lenges in a five-county ser­vice area on Mary­land’s Eastern Shore. Its car­ing staff and vol­un­teers be­lieve that peo­ple can and do re­cover from be­hav­ioral health is­sues. Cross­roads pro­grams pro­mote the re­siliency nec­es­sary for re­cov­ery and in­de­pen­dent life in the com­mu­nity through a wide va­ri­ety of ser­vices that are tai­lored to a per­son’s spe­cific needs.

In sup­port of our clients and the ser­vices Cross­roads Com­mu­nity pro­vides, the public is in­vited to the open­ing re­cep­tion of the Cross­roads Com­mu­nity Client Art Show, “Plant a Seed of Hope,” from 5 to 7 p.m. July 14 at the Queen Anne’s County Cen­tre for the Arts. View works from more than 30 clients in a va­ri­ety of me­dia while en­joy­ing hors d’oeu­vres and wine. A num­ber of works will be for sale and a lim­ited num­ber of gift bags will be shared with guests. Vis­i­tors can meet the staff and Board of Di­rec­tors for Cross­roads Com­mu­nity Inc. and learn more about how this or­ga­ni­za­tion serves the com­mu­nity.

Carla Thorpe, pro­gram di­rec­tor at Cross­roads Com­mu­nity Inc., is ex­cited about the par­tic­i­pa­tion and en­thu­si­asm the clients and staff have taken in the art show. “Plan­ning and ex­e­cut­ing this art show has been a won­der­ful project for our clients. Al­low­ing them to ex­press them­selves and be part of a com­mu­nity event does won­ders for their re­cover y and heal­ing. Hav­ing an event such this also al­lows us to speak about be­hav­ioral health is­sues and ul­ti­mately stop the stigma as­so­ci­ated with it.”

If you can­not make the re­cep­tion, visit the Cen­tre for the Arts at 206 S. Com­merce Street, Cen­tre­ville where the art­work will be on dis­play from July 14-27 dur­ing nor­mal op­er­at­ing hours, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tues­day through Satur­day. There is plenty of free park­ing and ad­mis­sion is free.

Ar­ti­sans fill the gym­na­sium at Ch­e­sa­peake Col­lege dur­ing the 2017 fes­ti­val.
