    The Gilbert W. Perry Jr. Center for the Arts in Middletown will hold an opening reception for its exhibit, “A View Through My Window,” Friday, Oct. 9, at 6 p.m. The exhibit will run through Saturday, Nov. 7.
    Terri Shane Willis, VSA residency artist and art therapist, will be present at the reception to discuss aspects of this project. All are welcome to join the Gibby as they applaud the efforts of these strong individuals during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This exhibit features canvas windows representing the messages of individuals who have experienced domestic violence first-hand. Artwork included in this exhibit was created in shelters and support groups in all three counties of Delaware. Poignant works of art by children who have been affected by domestic violence will also be on display.
    The messages conveyed by the participants both graphically and in written word regarding their personal journeys, make this a powerful and moving experience. This project was funded, in part, by a grant from Verizon Foundation and Verizon Hopeline.
