In Good Company is a group exhibition presented by Arts of Life. This exhibition seeks to highlight the mutually beneficial relationships and connections that develop within the Arts of Life studios. In Good Company features seven Arts of Life studio artists and four community volunteers, and includes work that has been developed both independently and collaboratively. The ongoing collaborations between studio artists and community volunteers are fundamental to the success of both individual practices and the overall health of the organization. This exhibition showcases the way in which these partnerships develop and thrive around a person-centric model.
