It is always a pleasure to assist our artist-neighbors at Urban Ministry Center's Artworks945 program with creating promotional materials for their annual fall art show. 

This organization is doing incredible work for the homeless of our community and through their Artworks945 outreach, they provide studio space, instruction, and an opportunity for neighbors to create and sell works of art.  There are always treasures to be found at the fall art show, and it is always a lovely evening rich with beauty and community.

Art Show Marketing: Artworks945

It is always an honor to work with the talented and inspiring folks at Urban Ministry Center's ArtWorks945 program to help promote their annual art show. This year, the event happens in conjunction with a local foods tasting hosted by Urbanites young professionals group.

This design served as a poster and invitation, and they'll use the Pathways graphic for tshirts, signage and other promotional items.

ArtWorks 945 Fall Show

ArtWorks 945, a part of Charlotte's Urban Ministry Center, serves those who struggle with homelessness and urban poverty.  Their studio and gallery space is both a refuge and and a place of creative productivity for its clients.  Twice a year, they host an exhibit and auction in their gallery space, an event that serves as both a fundraiser and an awareness-raiser. 

I am honored to have supported Urban Ministry Center and ArtWorks 945 by helping to create these marketing materials for thier fall show.

They will use use this graphic on thier posters, postcards, and email marketing.  It features a collaborative work of art by Artworks 945 artists, a sample of the works available at thier event.
