Building Blocks at Art Therapy Institute

Please join us for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk opening reception for artist Jason Blyskal.

Artist Statement:
"Building Blocks" features a collection of works centered around playfulness. Geometric shapes and vibrant colors intersect across multiple layers to create abstract representations of faces and structures reminiscent of 90's cartoons. Using mediums such as wood, mirror, and light, many of the pieces are intended to be interactive or functional in order to encourage viewers to play along and feel like a part of the ongoing creative process. By taking the time to get involved and consider how something abstract to one person can be many different things to another person, one can begin to understand how others see the world. This exhibition hopes to promote this form of unprejudiced play and evoke a sense of childhood wonderment for what possibilities lie in store.

Damien Mathis at Art Therapy Institute

Please join us for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk opening reception for artist Damien Mathis.

Artist Statement:
My Name is Damien Mathis. A Marine Combat Veteran, I’m contributing my perspective's creativity to the thought of possibilities. I want to help people overcome their anxieties of everyday problems, even if it is brief. There is a balance to our emotions and creativity. Both are unmeasured and often expressed. Becoming an artist has helped me to gain control of reflective judgement. The palette is self-rewarding. Battling the understandings of our daily problems, I feel we must engage our own imperfections. Do what you love, so people can love what you do.

Aramis Collazo Sandoval at The Art Therapy Institute

Aramis Collazo Sandoval is a student at Chapel Hill High School. She has attended art therapy since June of 2017 to reduce stress and to have a place to discuss and look for solutions to problems that she has been facing while finding creative expression through art. “ I just start painting or drawing, without a plan, while talking about what is going on in my life.” She chose to leave all of her artwork untitled. Her artwork speaks for itself.

Apperception at Art Therapy Institute

Please join us for the 2nd Friday ArtWalk opening reception for artist Mayson Stowers whose work centers on symbolic self-portraiture and self-reflection, presented in a way that audiences can relate to and find comfort in. 

“Apperception: the mental process by which a person makes sense of an idea by assimilating it to the body of ideas he or she already possesses.” No word better describes the art of Raleigh-native, Mayson Stowers. Trained in impressionistic oil painting, she pushes this and other media beyond traditional boundaries to create work centering on symbolic self-portraiture and self-reflection. She uses vibrant colors, intricate concepts, and fantastical symbolism blended with realistic representations to reveal her own struggles in hopes of encouraging others, explaining complex feelings and mental states through pictorial similes.

Heroes of the Schizo-affective Iron at The Art Therapy Institute

Please join us for the opening reception for Tripp Jarvis: Sculptor and Resident Artist at Liberty Arts Sculpture Studio and Foundry and Amanda Sampson: Architectural and Lifestyle Photographer. 

Tripp Jarvis is in continual search for stability, peace and wholeness. 
He feels behind all the brokenness and suffering we experience lies an indestructible foundation of strength and wholeness. His sculpture making is none other than the heroic journey of the self through the spirited fire burning deep within the furnace of his soul’s abyss. There in the core, he works the burning flame until the metal within sings out, in all the glory under the heavens, the great opus of his soul’s truth of being.

Born in the Washington D.C. area, Amanda Sampson is a Durham-based architectural and lifestyle photographer. Her photography career began over a decade ago as an editorial and commercial photographer with a focus on lifestyle imagery and design. Creating images of dynamic spaces and the natural world drives her work and enables her to continually explore new places and image-making techniques, inviting the viewer to the see the world in diverse ways.

I’m Erica, and I be painting at The Art Therapy Institute

Erica Danielle is from Durham, North Carolina. She graduated from North Carolina Central University in 2013 with a Bachelors in Art Studies. This is Erica’s debut art show after a six year hiatus. She decided to reemerge in art by painting portraits. “I like to paint people. My subjects are usually myself or other black people. I was raised alongside mostly white children and was confused about my identity at a young age: I always asked for white dolls to play with and wondered why my hair didn’t move like my friends hair. It took growing up in the black body I have and observing other black people to comprehend that I did not need to reject my identity. I now feel that it is my responsibility to take pride in being black and contribute black images in society. I want to normalize the image of black people. We are dynamic people. We don’t fit into a category or genre. We are popular culture.”

Nobody Ever Talks About THIS at Art Therapy Institute of NC

As the result of profound loss, grief is a natural, inescapable part of living. 

The art exhibition highlights works by Heather Lewis and Megan Bostic. For these artists, grief has become an integral part of their lives, and in the way they create art.

Their grief has also served as a catalyst:
-a catalyst to make human connections as part of the healing process
-a catalyst to create pieces that engage the public with uncomfortable topics
-a catalyst to give voice and visualization to their experiences

Sponsored by Art Therapy Institute and The Scrap Exchange

Pop-Up Art Exhibit and Open Mic for All at Art Therapy Institute

Please join the Art Therapy Institute of North Carolina during the 2nd Friday Art Walk for an evening of open response, expression, and healing. This pop-up art show will feature any form of art created by local community members in response to social injustices here in NC and beyond. You will also have opportunities for art-making at the show and an open-mic for anyone who would like to share spoken word, music, poetry, dance, etc. 

At a time when so many are feeling helpless and disenfranchised, let's use the arts as a way to process, heal, and join hands in response as a community in action!

Any artists interested in sharing their art for the event may drop off their work at the ATI office on Thursday, October 13th between 9:00AM-6:00pm. Please bring the artwork ready to hang-* 


The Art Therapy Institute began in October of 2006. Master’s level art therapists bring art to the places people are every day; after school centers, day treatment programs, schools and domestic violence shelters. Enhancing the outreach they do as mental health clinicians improves access to mental health services in our community. By approaching mental health issues more globally and by sharing the healing components of the arts they are able to provide support for many people and prevent more intensive interventions.

The Art Therapy Institute is hosting our annual Exceptional Children's Art Show for our kid artists with special needs from the Chapel Hill / Carrboro schools. at the Art Therapy Institute 200 North Greensboro St Suite D-6 ( Upstairs in Car Mill Mall).

Please join us to celebrate and admire art work made by students in the Chapel Hill Carrboro School's Exceptional Children's Program and students at Just Right Academy.

We provide art therapy services to students through the Exceptional Needs Program in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro City school system. Students are generally seen in small groups, and our goal is to provide positive experiences for them by challenging them with new sensory experiences, increasing their ability to communicate in a group atmosphere, providing opportunities to gain a sense of mastery and flexibility through the process of artmaking, helping them identify and respond to different emotions, and giving voice to their inner selves through the art. The students are encouraged to be playful, curious, and tenacious in their artistic process, and the process itself is emphasized over the end product in our work with them.
