The Life and Art of a Holyoke Treasure
Valley Frame Works is proud to be a co-sponsor along with The Stavros Center for Independent Living and the Hoyoke Senior Center, in celebration of the art and life of a Holyoke Treasure, Ed Kwiatkowski.
The exhibition is comprised of more than 50 art works that Ed (EK) created during a life time devoted to creating art utilizing the only part of his body that worked, his right foot. Born with cerebral palsy, Ed was not able to take part in many of the things we usually take for granted; he was able to survive to the age of 77 because his art kept him going. We hope you join us on August 8th, 2014 at a reception at the Senior Center in Holyoke to view some incredible works of art.
Please see the enclosed press release for more information and to RSVP
Valley Frame Works hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12-6pm, or by appointment until Labor Day, at which time our new hours of operation will be posted

"I believe that (abstract) art not only registers contemporary problems, but projects a desirable future order, unhampered by any secondary meaning...(abstract) art, I thought, creates new types of special relationships, new inventions or forms, new visual laws---basic and simple---as the visual counterpoint to a more purposeful, cooperative human society." ...........Moholy-Nagy 1922
