Last night we recognized the newest group of ZoomU Alum at a special ceremony held at StudioWorks. These Team Members have excelled past all the job coaching and support that we can offer them, and are now off to independent, competitive employment. We are so proud of the growth and work ethic of each and every one of them. 

Congratulations to you all! 

'Beautiful, Spontaneous, Creative' art exhibition featuring StudioWorks artist

We are so excited for StudioWorks artist Donna!

Donna will be displaying work at the Metro Arts Center from Jan 16th to March 14th as a part of the 'Beautiful, Spontaneous, Creative' exhibtion. The opening reception is Jan 16, 12-2pm for David Gladstone and 5-7pm for Donna.

For those not familiar with Donna's work, her art is a mixture of mediums such as acrylics, watercolors, and oil pastels. Donna's work also consists of found objects such as re-purposed books which she fills with vibrant illustrations. Donna has been working so hard to get more of her art out into the community and we can't be more excited for her.

To catch a glimpse for yourself, definitely make a point to check out the show! We're sure she'd love to see some familiar faces.

Happy Holidays everyone!

Bardstown Rd Aglow is a great opportunity to come see the gallery & studio, meet some of the artists, and socialize with others who share the goal of a more inclusive community for our Team Members. We will be offering light refreshments, a photo op with Santa, and wonderful holiday offerings for purchase. All sales proceeds will go to Zoom Group programming.
