The gallery is operated by people with traumatic brain injuries as part of their recovery and transition back into the community. Some of the artwork is created by people with disabilities as well as emerging artists from all around the world.
The PRIMARY goal of the Gallery is to provide a place for people with traumatic brain injuries a place to work on a daily basis in order to generate an income, build their self esteem and participate in vocational training. This is our number one goal! All Gallery sale profits goes towards the gallery rent, the client's pay and to purchase art supplies for artists with disabilities.
