Submitted by the Event Organizer
Come help celebrate the artwork of Matthew Kowalaski, who has dedicated his life to art, by enjoying art, food, and music.
“Working with found objects and surplus paints and inks gives me a sense of well-being, esteem, and wholeness. When these objects are reappropriated, there is less waste running amok. It makes me feel as if everything we need is here, all around us; we don’t need to go out and get more. My work is itself a renewable resource.
For 25 years of my life, I was a homeless, disenfranchised, invisible person. My art became my vehicle of self-expression and a path to mental health. It allowed me to buy in, belong, take my place in the community.” -Matthew Kowalaski
