Toledo, OH—October 1, 2009. 20 North Gallery presents Shared Visions, an exhibition of paintings, collage, jewelry, prints and multi-media work by artists employed by Shared Lives Studio, the art staff of Lott Industries. “The original, professional art-work of Shared Visions emphasizes to 20 North Gallery patrons and collectors their connection with the artistic vision of differently-abled artists living in our community. The creation of this high-quality work demonstrates the universal language of art and the empowerment of the individual to express shared experiences,” states Lori Schoen, Art Director of Shared Lives Studio.

Shared Lives Studio Artists and 20 North Gallery will be welcoming friends and collectors at the free Opening Reception on Friday, October 16th, at 20 North Gallery, from 6 – 9p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The reception is being held in conjunction with the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo’s Meet & Greet 9, a free Downtown gallery bus-loop that visits seventeen exhibition spaces in Toledo. The bus loop may be accessed at any of the participating venues.

The Shared Lives Studio project of Lott Industries is supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and facilitated by the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo and the Toledo Community Foundation. Sixty percent of all sales of artwork in Shared Visions at 20North Gallery goes to support Shared Lives Studio and their employed artists. The Shared Visions exhibit will continue through October 31st.
