St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen
617 Main Street
2-4pm: Open House for Abby Carter portrait gallery
St. Vincent de Paul hosts a spectacular gallery of artwork that most Middletown residents never see: more than 200 sketches of soup kitchen guests by renowned children’s book illustrator Abby Carter. Carter is Artist-in-Residence at SVP, where she encourages guests to create their own work — and offers to draw their portraits. The response has been tremendous, and the resulting gallery is a beautiful, moving celebration of the St. Vincent de Paul community. Assistant Director for Community Services, Lydia Brewster, will offer tours, and light refreshments will be served.
