NeighborWorks Week 2020
While we are unable to gather in person for this year's NeighborWorks Week, we will be hosting a week-long "thank you" campaign online throughout the week of June 6-13!
To participate, download this form, print it out, and write in who is building strong communities and who you are thankful for! This could include first responders, mail carriers, our amazing housing staff and resident service coordinators, a friend or relative who has been picking up your groceries, or anyone you would like to recognize. These forms make for great window signs, so we encourage you to hang them in your windows and share pictures of your signs with us! You can email the photos to email@example.com, or share them on Facebook, twitter, and Instagram and be sure to tag us @catchhousing in your photos!
Masquerade Gala and 30th Anniversary Celebration
A HUGE thank you to everyone who attended, supported, and contributed to CATCH's 30th anniversary masquerade gala! It was a great success and we are truly grateful to all of the people who helped create such a phenomenal inaugural event. We look forward to creating a bigger and even better event in 2021!
In the mean time, if you were unable to attend the masquerade for any reason, we invite you to participate in the online portion of our "art gallery walk" below! This artwork was created by local artists in response to the theme of, "What does home mean to you?" Everything below is for sale with proceeds supporting CATCH! Please reach out to Erin at Eschaick@catchhousing.org if you are interested in purchasing anything. Thank you!
This piece was created by Karen Davies, a CATCH resident! About this piece, Karen says, "I like to read about art history. Using clean water based acrylic paint I try to paint in their style, while my style is Norman Rockwell-like. I cried when I realized what Georges Rouault (1871-1958 Paris) had done. Almost Pope-like expressions of sympathy for humanity in some of his works."
Price: Make an offer!
"Forever Home" by Taylor Duhaime
My painting is a bright painting of a woman in jeans with a house tucked into her back pocket. A quality living situation is critical for your health and well being. At any given time, what was once quality can disintegrate. So the strongest home is a home that can exist within the shelter of any four walls; it is one that you can carry in your back pocket from one place to another. When we trust that our sense of home isn't tied to a specific place we can fearlessly pursue the healthier living situation at any given moment.
"The Farm" by Linda Graham
In this painting, home is an iconic farm, on a hill under a brilliant sky, with abundance all around. Home represents our dreams of those same things, wherever we find it. I have used gold for the sky indicating reverence.
"Not a place but a people" by Aaron Cooper
Home is important to me because it provides an area of safety and love which I always feel when I'm around those I care about. The piece communicates the importance of home because in today's society, shelter is necessary but an additional level of emotional support is required at the end of the day with mental health issues on the rise.
"3 pieces of animal habitats native to New Hampshire"
by Kathy Sullivan
Home is important to me because of freedom of expression. These three pieces of the owl, frogs, and fox represent security and family.
Price: $150 each
