Therapy: Sarah Leighty and Matt Wester
Saturday, May 16, 7-10pm
There’s a hope that through introspection one might affect external changes that extend beyond ourselves. The works exhibited are products of this exploration, and they offer a glimpse into the way art can reveal this experience.
50% of all sales will be donated to The Art Station in an effort to provide art therapy for Veterans .
A little about art therapy- words from the American Art Therapy Association:
"...Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, people can increase awareness of self and others cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences; enhance cognitive abilities; and enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.... Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight."
