Making an Impact: Mentoring in Real Life celebrates the value of mentoring through the work of three artist mentorship pairings. Spanning painting, mixed media, drawing, and carved wood, the exhibition is an opportunity to see how each mentor’s knowledge and experience has helped to guide and shape their mentee to reach greater heights. Mentors allow the mentees to see the hope inside themselves.
