Artists Among Us
Event on: October 4, 2018 5:00 pmLocation: Third Space Cafe
Every year CMHA Kelowna hosts an evening of art and community as we celebrate the accomplishments of our ArtWorks Studio participants. The Artists Among Us art gala is a celebration of mental health recovery and wellness for people with lived experience.
This is a free community event at Third Space Coffee from 5:00-8:00pm including light appies and a champagne toast to the artists. Art will be available for purchase this evening with 70% supporting the artist and 30% supporting the ArtWorks Studio.
The theme for the 2018 Artists Among Us art gala is Encompassing Compassion. It is inspired by the Medicine Wheel and will foster the exploration of life, balance, and love through the colors of the wheel and a variety of art mediums.
More about ArtWorks: The ArtWorks Studio is a comfortable and welcoming space for an adventure in learning new skills, to have an avenue for self-expression and to create art as a pathway to wellness. The studio is a place where we nurture the creative spirit and honour the whole person. Many participants of the ArtWorks Studio have overcome isolation, achieved a sense of belonging and built a stronger connection to the community. The studio offers art classes taught by local artists and covers a wide variety of techniques and mediums that are put to practice during open studio sessions. The overall experience is one of wellness.
