An unique opportunity to meet a unique group of artists and view their the Graceful Art Gallery, 156 Main Street North, Brampton.

The artists, from the Regeneration Art Program, are homeless and formerly homeless whose individual experiences and perspectives have inspired their art.

Art from the Street is an exhibit of their recent work. The public will have the opportunity to meet some of the artists and to vote for "The Peoples Choice".

The Regeneration Art Program helps members gain skills necessary to connect with the public. They gain much needed self esteem through the value of their work. In the words of artist Lorne McCay: "Art saved me".

The Graceful Art Gallery was created by Grace Place and Grace United Church to exhibit the Art Program work. Funding for the Gallery came from the United Church of Canada Seeds of Hope Living Spirit Fund.
