Why I Want To Give
The Out of the Box Gallery holds a special place in my heart because of how they supported my brother, Chris, when he lived with us here in Jamestown. At the time, it was under the agency called Bridges, Inc. Lisa Rafferty and her staff helped me so much, and took such wonderful care of Chris in our home, and in the gallery/workshop.
Having my show here lets me give a little something back to this organization and helps keep this amazing space available for so many individuals with disabilities that thrive in an art studio that allows their creativity to blossom.
