Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity: Homeless women offer artistic treasures at Distillery District
  
Join the artists of the Adelaide Women's Art Studio to celebrate their sixth
annual Art Exhibition and Sale. The artwork is created by women who share
histories of homelessness and inadequate housing. The exhibition gives voice to
the many talented and enthusiastic women who use the art programs at the
Adelaide Resource Centre for Women. The exhibition will continue until November
3, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All proceeds will go to help support the work of the
artists.

Opening Reception Date: Thursday, October 28
Time: 5 - 8 p.m.
Location: Distillery Visitor Centre
55 Mill St., Toronto
Exhibition Dates: October 28 to November 3

The Adelaide Women's Art Studio offers a diverse group of women the opportunity
to experience a wide range of challenging and inspiring art media in a
supportive environment. The studio is operated jointly by the Adelaide Resource
Centre for Women (a program of Toronto Shelter, Housing and Support) and the
Regent Park Community Health Centre.

As the art exhibition has evolved over the past six years, many previously
unknown artists have had a rare opportunity to showcase their impressive
talents. By moving the exhibition to the artistic enclave within the Distillery
District, the studio's artists are moving one step closer to assuming a
prominent position on Toronto's cultural stage.
