Box Gallery owner Rolando Chang Barrero



Visual artist, entrepreneur, and Box Gallery owner Rolando Chang Barrero will be the Judge for Awards for our Members Exhibit. Winner of the 2020 Muse Award for Outstanding Cultural Leadership, Barrero, a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, has been recognized as a trailblazer and integral member of the art community.. APBC is proud to be exhibiting in The Box Gallery, Barrero’s current artistic venture.







This free workshop is for anyone or everyone who wishes to strengthen self-awareness and self-expression. Led by Maxine Schreiber, artist and retired licensed mental health counselor, the workshop is designed for the seasoned artist to deepen creative pathways and to learn tools for overcoming periods of blocking or self-doubt. It is also for anyone who longs for the opportunity to unleash creative potential.



Using art therapy techniques, the process of creating will be emphasized rather than the product. Paper, crayons, and magic markers will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring in supplies for any medium they choose to use for their self-expression: sketch pads, pencils, paint, clay, newspaper, construction paper, scissors, collage materials, glue, beads, feathers, etc.  Whatever sparks your creative juices.
