About The A-TEAM:
In 2001, five self-taught visual artists who used the services of the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) and had participated for several years in the Extra Helpings arts program at TASK, met with Extra Helpings volunteer Susan Darley to discuss the possibility of forming an artist cooperative. The nascent idea was to offer the clients, who possessed artistic interests and talents but did not have the personal resources to pursue their creative activities, a collegial environment in which they could hone their creative abilities and ultimately sell their artwork and share the benefits of their efforts. The number of artists grew quickly, and the walls of the soup kitchen became a year-round gallery for the display of their work. Over the years, the “A-TEAM Artists of Trenton” have participated in hundreds of shows at such diverse venues as museums, galleries, corporate offices, government departments, non-profit organizations, and religious institutions.
The Trenton Community A-TEAM supports, develops, and promotes self-taught, local artists because art can be transformative by reframing the artist’s connectedness to self and others and by enhancing community pride.
