What could be more delectable than Delicious Art, complete with wine, artisanal cheeses, and chocolate? The AVA Gallery and Art Center has joined with the Special Needs Support Center in Lebanon NH to host a fundraiser for SNSC on November 5 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.

Artists will display their works, produced in ART LAB, a weekly studio art program for adults with special needs, co-sponsored by AVA and SNSC. ART LAB currently serves more than 40 participants, having grown from an initial group of 6 in 2008.

SNSC's Executive Director, Laura Perez, sees attending Delicious Art as "not just an investment in SNSC but an investment in the whole community." Trip Anderson, Executive Director of AVA,  "couldn't be happier to sustain (SNSC's) efforts to make our community a happier and healthier place for everyone."

SNSC is a small and mighty non-profit with a long history. In a timeline on its website, it describes its beginning in 1979 as "an idea without a name or plan." It grew with the efforts of many dedicated people and operated as the Upper Valley Support Group (UVSG) before changing its name in 2008. It  provides multiple services to both children and adults in the special needs community in the Upper Valley.

Tickets are $25 and are available at AVA's door (just off of Colburn Park in the center of Lebanon) immediately prior to the event.
