Workhouse Artists Organize Second Annual 'Have a Heart' Project

All proceeds will go to Food for Others.

Workhouse Arts Center studio artists John Gascot and Mary Gallagher-Stout, also known as The Art Monkeys, are organizing their second annual Have a Heart Project. 

The artistic food drive opens to the public Wednesday, Feb. 6 and will display empty lunch bags with original artworks created by a number of Workhouse artists. Each of the pieces in the exhibit will be sold for a $10 donation, and all the proceeds will benefit the Food for Others charity. 

"We're trying to make a living, but also make our community a better place," Stout recently told Patch. "When you invest in your art and your community we become invested in you."

Last year's project earned the non-profit 750 pounds of food. 

“We hope that visitors will share in our commitment to community and support our project once more," said Gascot. "This year’s exhibit is a great opportunity to get your hands on original art at an incredibly low price while making a difference."

An opening reception for the Have a Heart Project will be held Saturday, Feb. 9, from 6 to 9 p.m., in Studio 4 (Building W-4) of the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
