McKinley's Frame Shop is featuring artists from the Livermore Division VA Hospital's Creative Arts Therapy Program at tonight's First Friday Art Hop from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The veteran artists have expressed thoughts and feelings through creative means. The creative process helps the artists with skill building, developing an art journal, creative coping and maintaining a living journal.

The veteran artists will share stories during the First Friday Art Hop that have been expressed in their paintings.

A percentage of all sales will go to Lodi Support Our Troops to support the men and women who are deployed in the Middle East. Their artwork will be on display and available to purchase throughout the month of May at McKinley's Frame Shop, 11 W. Pine St. in Lodi. For information, call 224-1225 or 625-8194.
