ARTSCENTER CORRIDOR: May's Emerging Artist: Brushes With Life

“We are proud to be showcasing collective works from our students in the healing arts class.  This class has been an exploration of self-expression from the stand point of mindfulness.  As a group we focus on the process of our artwork while seeking a therapeutic benefit.  This class is hosted by Brushes With Life: Arts Program through the Center of Excellence in Community Mental Health at UNC.  Our artwork is a reflection of our efforts to let go of preconceived notions of what art is supposed to be, and our hopes to discover how healing the creative process is.”

Opening Reception: Friday, May 8th6-8pm in the Nicholson Gallery and will be held in conjunction with the 2nd FridayArtWalk. The exhibit will be on display May 1st-31st.
