An exhibit of artwork by local homeless and other nontraditional artists will be on display in the Augusta R. Kolwyck Library on the main campus of Chattanooga State Community College beginning Tuesday, March 13 and continuing for a month.  

The exhibit comes from The Hart Gallery TN, a nonprofit gallery that provides a place for artists to create and exhibit their works.  Their extended mission is to supply art materials and mentoring classes to other nonprofit community organizations who can provide a space for their clients to participate in art classes.

 “Seeing how the artists express themselves will be a moving experience, ” Ellen Heavilon, director of The Hart Gallery TN, said. For further details about the exhibit opening at Chattanooga State, contact reference librarian Laura Young at 423-697-4436.
