RESPECT: Unsung Heroes in Uniform Art Exhibit at Del Ray Artisans Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, June 3 from 7-9pm
Show Dates: June 3-26, 2016
When one is in uniform, people tend to see the uniform but not the individual. Let’s take a moment to give respect to ALL unsung heroes in uniform: coaches, teams, nurses, doctors, dentists, vets, food and restaurant workers, janitors, maintenance employees, retail service workers, gym instructors, landscape workers, bus and train drivers, police officers, and security personnel... just to name a few!
Visit Del Ray Artisans gallery in June to see how area artists chose to show their respect. Some artists expressed their point of view, depicted something funny or thought provoking, or honored a loved one. There will also be a small memorial section in the gallery where visitors can reflect, contemplate or remember. The exhibit runs June 3-26, 2016.
Please join uthemfor the opening reception on Friday, June 3 from 7-9pm, and check Del Ray Artisans website calendar for other events scheduled throughout the month.
