Since 1994, the Friendship Circle has provided inclusive social and creative opportunities for special needs adults in search of a platform to express themselves. An extension of the organization’s art programming, which also includes restaurant skills and bakery training, is Friendship Circle Soul Studio — which will post up at the CCS Center Galleries through March 30 with its Mirror, Mirror exhibition. Produced and compiled over the past two years, the exhibit’s vibrant large-scale works range from animated sculptural tapestries to intricately beaded curtains and abstract expressionist paintings. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.

Mirror, Mirror opens on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 6-8 p.m. at CCS Center Galleries at Manoogian Visual Resource Center; 301 Frederick Douglass Ave., Detroit; collegeforcreativestudies.edu; Event is free and open to the public.
