Natural Selection-Annual Home Show

May 4 – June 21, 2012

Opening Reception:
Friday, May 4, 5 – 9PM

Creative Growth Art Center is pleased to announce its exhibition Home: Natural Selection.

The oldest and largest art center for artists with disabilities invites you to experience some of nature’s finest creations. The annual Home show has remained a much anticipated tradition for Bay Area art collectors for more than twenty years and invites the artists at Creative Growth to focus on hand-designed, decorative furniture, textiles, ceramic wares, as well as drawing and painting and collage work by artists Donald Mitchell, John Hiltunen, Franna Lusson, John Martin, Ray Vickers, Terri Bowden and more.

Also, check out photos and fashion ensembles from the Creative Growth March runway event, Beyond Trend. Backstage and ‘on the catwalk’ photographs captured by Bay Area artist Terri Loewenthal and Danish artist, Yann Houlberg Andersen will be on view in our upstairs exhibition space.

Join the studio artists as they lead an afternoon parade, wearing hand-built floats with designs ranging from unicorns and lighthouses, to hand-feathered bird wings. A street parade of wild and fantastical creations you don’t want to miss!
