Uptown Village Marketplace

Thank you to all the wonderful artists, supporters, family, friends, volunteers, and visitors!
It was a heart warming and uplifting experience for all of us.

It was a true joy to see how the artists developed friendships with each other, how they opened up and showed the best of themselves in this amazing environment, how they improved existing skills and built new skills, and how their self-confidence and pride grew in the magnificent work they are doing.

We want to give a special thanks to the surrounding community and The Uptown Village Market for the lasting postive impacts they created!


Many thanks to our artists:
