ServiceNet Community Artwork to Be Featured at Greenfield Public Library

GREENFIELD — ServiceNet, a nonprofit provider of mental health and human services in Western Mass., announced that an exhibit featuring its community members’ works will be the inaugural community art display at the new Greenfield Public Library, which opened last July. The exhibit at the library will run from Saturday, April 6 through the end of May.

This exhibit will include a diverse collection of paintings, photography, and other visual art, representing the unique perspectives and creativity of more than 20 artists, all of whom are members of the ServiceNet community. ServiceNet provides essential services to people living with mental-health challenges, developmental delay or disability, brain injury, homelessness, substance-use issues, and other challenges.

A reception will be held on Wednesday, May 1 from 4 to 7 p.m., welcoming the public to celebrate the transformative power of art in fostering connection and building community.

“We are excited to bring our show to the Greenfield Public Library and to highlight the talent and creativity of artists throughout the agency,” said Amy Timmins, ServiceNet’s vice president of Community Relations. “We also extend our heartfelt appreciation to the library for hosting us as their first community art show.”

Library Director Anna Bognolo noted that “Greenfield Public Library is pleased to launch its local artist exhibition program with this show, and we are delighted that the ServiceNet artists will be able to share their work with our community. We hope that the show encourages other local artists to submit their own exhibition request to the library.”
