Art & Soul

Art & Soul Exhibit

a&S 2015Partners and Toward Independence come together each April for our juried art exhibit that celebrates the creativity and talent of Ohio artists with developmental disabilities, one of the few exhibits of its kind in Ohio.

Forty five pieces are selected annually by three professional artists to participate in our Art & Soul exhibit, which includes our opening reception in April.

Our exhibit is funded 100% by sponsorships and donations. More than $1000 in cash awards is presented each year to award winners. Artists also have the opportunity to market/sell their art.

Check out the Donate button below to sponsor our exhibit at the $250, $500 or $1000 level or to become an Art Patron with a donation of $100.00. You may support an artist or group of artists with an ad in our event program. Contact Pam at or 937-278-0791 for ad information.

Join us for our 2017 Art & Soul opening reception and awards ceremonies on Saturday, April 22 at Toward Independence, 81 East Main Street, Xenia.
