Images of the Homeless and Those Who Help Them
TIME: 11:00 am
THE GALLERY AT FIREHOUSE SQUARE is presenting a special exhibition depicting the personal side of homelessness through the lens of photographer Alex Matthiessen and the palette of oil painter Elisabeth McGinn. Entitled “Right Next Door: Images of the Homeless and Those Who Help Them,” the exhibit features the artwork of two women, Alex and Elisabeth, who met as soup kitchen volunteers and share a deep belief in the need to give back. The show will also include poems and artwork created by some of the homeless subjects that Alex and Elisabeth have photographed and painted over the years. All artwork in the exhibit will be for sale, with 100% of the proceeds donated to The Homeless Hospitality Center of New London and St. Vincent de Paul Place in Norwich.
