“A Piece of My Mind” Art Exhibition explores mental wellness

Exhibition runs Nov. 2-19 in the KAC Main and Hallway Galleries at the Old Courthouse Opening Reception Wednesday, Nov. 2, 6-8pm

“A Piece of My Mind” is an upcoming exhibition by the Kamloops Arts Council Crossing Bridges Outreach Program and community artists focusing on the meaning of a healthy mind. The theme of the exhibit is Inspiration.

Art can be a way of coping with mental health issues, including grief, anxiety, depression, stress and fear. The exhibit is intended to be an exploration of images and ideas around what can have positive effects on state of mind — with an emphasis on mental wellness and health.

Open your mind to all possibilities at this unique and extraordinary exhibition. Art changes lives!

A Piece of My Mind will feature work from Crossing Bridges participants as well as the larger community. The KAC’s Crossing Bridges Outreach Program takes workshops led by local artists to children, youth and adults at agencies such as the Canadian Mental Health Association Clubhouse, Phoenix Centre, the YWCA Women’s Shelter, and more.
