29 Dec Art Therapy Challenge
From January 2-30, Nickel Plate Arts will celebrate art’s powerfully therapeutic qualities during The Healing Power of Art, an exhibition of art that has an emotional significance to the artist and/or represents a healing journey. We selected the painting Fortitude, by local art therapist Gina Baird, to represent the show. Baird will lead an interactive art assemblage during the Opening Reception on Friday, January 8 from 6-9 p.m. We invite you to bring small items (charms, beads, material/fabric, copies of photos, obituaries, poems, etc.) that are symbolic to you and that you associate with fortitude: the act of courage and bravery. The collaborative assemblage will then become part of the exhibit and can be viewed and interacted with through January 30, 2016.
