Journey to Wholeness: 2nd Annual Abuse Survivors Art Show

The Kent Bellows Studio and Center for Visual Arts, 3303 Leavenworth St.

Reception 6-9pm, exhibition thru April 22


Art can be a powerful method of healing. The hope of the artists of Journey to Wholeness is to raise awareness of art as a healing mechanism and build the bridge between viewer and abuse victim to “create a deeper understanding of the very personal and devastating effects of this sometimes silent, yet life altering epidemic and the beautiful power of art in giving voice to that which is unspeakable.” This is the second year the group of established artists and abuse survivors creating art for healing have put on the show as a part of their journey. Throughout the exhibit, workshops will be provided for survivors, family members and interested public in addressing the consequences of abuse and the use of art as healing.
