Trousdale School juried art show is Thursday


Trousdale School is proud to announce its third annual juried art show, titled "From My Perspective." The show will be held this Thursday, beginning at 6 p.m. 

From My Perspective was created in 2016 to provide artists with disabilities in East Tennessee and North Georgia an opportunity to showcase their work alongside the work of their peers.

In its first two years, the school has displayed the work of over a hundred artists from across Cleveland, Chattanooga, and North Georgia.

"We are looking forward to 2018!" said Sarah Bradley, art instructor at Trousdale School.

The event is open to the community and will feature a silent auction for artists who wish to sell their work. 

Participation in the art show was open to any individual who is age 14 or older, and it was not limited to artists with disabilities. Each participant could submit three artworks.

Participants will be recognized with a certificate at the evening session. A jury will select four artworks of outstanding creativity, expression, or design to receive Silver Easel Awards.

The show is free to enter and attend, and 100 percent of the purchase price of any artworks sold will go to the artists (or organization) that submitted the work.

"We anticipate a diverse exhibition with good community representation!" Bradley said. 

The school is located at 3171 Hewitt St. S.E. in Cleveland. For more information, visit 

Trousdale School serves high functioning adults with intellectual disabilities by providing academics, life skills, and occupational development for the purpose of learning independence. The school received national accreditation in 2015 through NCASES a subsidiary of NAPSEC, the National Association of the Private Special Education Centers. The school is licensed by the State of Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. In 2017, the school became the first and only organization in the state of Tennessee to hold a license as a Developmental Disabilities Adult Habilitation Day Facility.
