Element of Art celebrating 10-year anniversary with special items

Those interested in supporting local artists should visit Element of Art.

Located on North Main Street, Element of Art showcases and sells artwork created by adults with developmental disabilities.

There is something for everyone at the gallery. For Element of Art, keeping it local benefits the community, and all of the people in it.

“We have everything from pottery, jewelry, fused glass, photography and a variety of paintings,” said Suzanne Madden, art coordinator.

Element of Art opened 10 years ago this December. The studio will be offering special items to celebrate for the holiday season.

“We will be bringing back all past Christmas card designs, including a 10-year edition, Madden said. “There will be a variety of handmade Christmas ceramic and glass ornaments, and decor as well.”

The most important thing to those at Element of Art is giving back and making a positive impact on the community.

“We give back by supporting individual artists with developmental disabilities by giving them an opportunity to express themselves through the arts,” said Madden.

“Mansfield, especially downtown has come a very long way, and continues to show growth. We have a dedication to making this town a better place, and offering a little bit of something for everyone,” she said. “The love and support we see on a day-to-day basis in this community is what makes Mansfield such a great place to be.”

Stop by the gallery to admire the beautiful artwork, and you may find a unique holiday gift.
