Opening Reception: March 5 (6-8pm)
Runs: March 5 – 26, 2016


This exhibition is created in a partnership with the You Rock Foundation. One in Four people have or will struggle from a diagnosable mental health struggle in their lifetime. There is an intense need for awareness of this difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work. Each artist will work with a mental health disorder of choice based on personal experience or outside influences that have impacted their lives. Art is an invaluable, an incredible resource to educate people on mental health crisis we face worldwide and the stigmas unfortunately still attached to them. This exhibition hopes to bring hope, understanding and awareness to a very important topic.
