Birch Tree artists contribution

  • Birch Tree artist’s contribution

Laman, at 2801 Orange St. in North Little Rock, opens an exhibition tomorrow of works by the clients of Birch Tree Communities, which serves people with serious mental illness, and the Arkansas State Hospital.


The art outreach at Birch Tree, a non-profit whose annual exhibition of work has brought more than $200,000 in sales to its clients, and the Creative Expressions Program at the State Hospital were designed to give people with mental illness a way to communicate their feelings and gain self-confidence. Jim Tindall is Birch Tree’s artistic director, and Donala Jordan and Ariston Jacks run the State Hospital program.

The show runs through Oct. 20.
