Escaping Time would like to kindly invite you to our official opening art reception on Saturday, August 27, 2022 5:00p.m. to 7:00p.m.

About this event

Through art, we work to change the narrative and change the stereotype of what society imagines when thinking about the incarcerated. The art serves as a reminder that there is creativity and talent within us all, in spite of the walls that may surround us. We are delighted to have featured artist, Karen Thomas, lead a discussion about art and resilience.

Refreshments will be served. Fresh Taste Bakery cup cakes will be happily shared.

Come view, listen, reflect and share.

The exhibit will be running Saturdays and Sundays, from August 20 to October 30
