ABOUT PROJECT ONWARD

Project Onward is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization studio and gallery for professional artists with mental and developmental disabilities.

This organization supports the professional development of artists with exceptional talents and challenges, ranging from autism to mental illness, and provides these artists with workspace, materials, professional guidance, exhibition opportunities and access to markets to sell their work and advance their careers.

Studio + Gallery

Project Onward’s studio and gallery are FREE and open to the public Tuesday-Saturday, 11am-5pm, and on the 3rd Friday of each month until 9PM. In opening the studio and gallery to the public and activating the space with free public programs, Project Onward seeks to promote art as a powerful tool for understanding and valuing the real and potential contributions of our national population with disabilities. At Project Onward, art has become a unique medium for comprehensively and constructively discussing mental illness and developmental disabilities and re-framing the discussion around these artists’ abilities. 

Exhibits

Housed on the Bridgeport Art Center’s 4th Floor, Project Onward presents group and solo exhibitions in three galleries: the Main Gallery, the Spotlight Gallery and Gallery B. These professionally curated spaces host regularly rotating exhibitions that feature art by Project Onward’s member artists. The gallery celebrates new openings monthly and invites collectors, supporters and the public to enjoy drinks and refreshment, explore the exhibitions and also engage with Project Onward artists while they work in the studio.

BEYOND THE GLASS! PART FOUR

Beyond the Glass is a God-breathed idea? I spent many years being a wife & mom. I gave so much to my family that I sacrificed my own desires and aspirations. With my daughter off to college I spent much of my time asking God to give me something of substance, something I could grow and that would bless others.
 

One day I woke up and it came to me...paint bottles!, and although it may have sound a little strange, It was different and I did exactly that!! Yes, there were challenges and lessons learned along the way but when Gods got a plan and you are willing, all things are possible. The mission of Beyond the Glass is to give people a moment of Freedom to express art from deep within and create lasting memories.

In this presentation, guest will learn how to clean labels from wine bottles and decorate for an artistic masterpiece in their home or office.

This event is FREE, and open to the public. RSVP is strongly encouraged.
