2018 MOntrose Art Party (MARTY):  Neon marty dance party!

6 - 9 PM - Friday May 18, 2018

It is time for one of Art League Houston’s most important events, the Montrose Art Party, or MARTY, which supports the Healing Art program! Each year, the event has a special theme. This year’s MARTY, "Neon Marty Dance Party," is co-chaired by Bobby Bass & Zachary Gresham and will be a glow party that takes us back to the raves of the 90's . Admission to this event is FREE.

The event will feature music by Flash Gordon Parks, delectable bites, a cash bar which includes a very special glowing concoction made, as well as an exciting silent auction with work by Texas based artists! A portion of the artwork proceeds will help ensure the continuation of this vital program.

The 2018 MARTY will honor the National Council of Jewish Women - Greater Houston Section for their continued support of the Healing Art program and it's participants. 

Additionally, an exhibition of artwork created by artists in the Healing Art program will be on view in the main gallery.

ABOUT The HEALING ART  Program

In 1990, Patrick Palmer founded the Healing Art program, a free Healing Art program at Art League Houston for adults living with HIV/AIDS. In 1995, Art League provided additional Healing Art classes to serve the needs of adults living with other severe illnesses including cancer, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and physical disabilities.

Healing Art is one of the only program of its kind for adults in Houston, outside of hospital or clinical settings. Art League Healing Art classes are offered free of charge in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Each Friday, September to May, two Healing Art classes are presented in four-hour sessions. The HIV/AIDS and Cancer Related Illnesses Class is taught by Rebecca Bass, and Emily Sloan instructs the MS and Physical Disabilities Class. Tuition and art supplies are provided at no cost to the students as a majority are living on fixed incomes.

Healing Art students participate in two ALH sponsored events: The MARTY: A Montrose Art Party held each spring and the Healing Art Gala Silent Auction in the fall. There is a sense of camaraderie in the two Healing Art groups, and the on-going opportunities to exhibit and sell artwork gives students a sense of accomplishment.
