The reception at the Art Center at Ambler last night saw a steady stream of visitors; some had read about the project, some were connected with other groups dedicated to eliminating gun violence and some just wandered in off the street. But the experience for all the visitors is universally poignant and moving. The families and artists who have so graciously participated in the project should know that this exhibition is making a difference and spreading an important message.
The art center is a vibrant place with many classes. We are told the students are also experiencing the portraits and we are grateful for the exposure to so many viewers.
