Abby Anderson, of Port Vue, was selected to have her artwork on display at the Community Care Behavioral Health’s 25th Anniversary Art Show. This is a two-day event that started on September 16th as a virtual art show based in Reading, Pennsylvania, and a live art show held on the 17th in Sharpsburg. The Community Care Behavioral Health Art Show is held annually to raise money for the Pittsburgh-based organization that provides behavioral health services throughout Pennsylvania.

Abby Anderson used an autumn theme for her painting, titled, Forest Day, which was entered into the Community Care Behavioral Health’s 25th Anniversary Art Show.

Anderson’s mother, Krissy Anderson, received a flier in the mail that detailed how the organization was holding a contest to select artwork for their fundraising event. That was when 8-year-old, Abby, who has a talent for drawing and painting, entered a piece that she titled, “Forest Day.” Her artwork is a symbol of autumn, her favorite season. She explained that she first drew the design on acrylic paper and then painted it with watercolors.

At the art show, there were two aspects that stood out to Abby’s mother. Of all the participants with artwork on display, Abby was only one of two children who were chosen. The remaining participants were adults, as children are not often chosen to participate in the event. Also, several of those in attendance pointed out Abby’s painting and expressed how they plan to use her style as inspiration for their next piece.

Abby stated that she plans to enter her artwork again in next year’s show. While she waits to hear if she is once again selected, she will continue to work on her art and grow her skills.
