Art and passion go hand in hand; artists tend to be passionate about their work and creativity. With that in mind, selecting a theme for this year’s Expressions Art Event was easy: “Pursue Your Passion” sums up the artists in the Creative Hearts Art Studio.

This year’s Expressions Art Event is rapidly approaching, and if you’ve not heard, we’re opening the Creative Hearts Art Studio on Carey Services’ Marion campus for the event. This year, you’ll be able to see where the studio’s artists pursue their passion and hopefully ignite something inside you to pursue your passion, too. We’ll have plenty of art for sale, too, so you can enjoy seeing the fruits of an artist’s passion in your own home or office.

Join us from 6 to 8 p.m. on Oct. 5 for an evening of fun and discovery as we display our artists’ work and offer opportunities for you to participate in a collaborative art project that will help us observe our 65th anniversary. The evening will be a free open house atmosphere with free appetizers and a cash bar. We suggest casual dress.

As we move this year’s Expressions event to our campus, we believe it will be a better showcase for the passion of the artists in the Creative Hearts Art Studio and what they have created. We promise you will have an enlightening experience.

The evening’s schedule will be:

  • 6 p.m. — Appetizers and cash bar; art will be on display and for sale; silent auction for selected art pieces will open
  • 6:45 p.m. — Artist presentations/comments
  • 7:45 p.m. — Silent auction closes; winners announced
  • 8 p.m. — Event ends

Carey Services believes in enhancing abilities, whatever they might be, and helping people turn them into opportunities. Expressions is an event where we invite the community to celebrate artists who have used their abilities and their passion to create a wide variety of art. We are hoping you will support this inspiring event and be a part of the vision to see all people as equally valued community members.
