"Art of Healing" A Group Exhibition Exploring the Intersection of Art and Mental Health

“THE ART OF HEALING” 2022

A Group Exhibition Exploring the Intersection of Art and Mental Health

For this exhibition, Siy Gallery is looking for works by artists/photographers. Siy Gallery invites artists to submit images to be considered for our window and online exhibition.

Art provides the ability to capture a moment or memories of different aspects of mental health and healing. Siy Gallery is looking for works that will illuminate the power of narrative artwork as a tool for challenging stigma and discrimination associated with this cause. We are looking for work that shows your ingenuity, talent, heart, and perception of mental illness.

The “Art of Healing” photography exhibition will begin on September in San Bruno and November in Belmont 2022.  By putting the spotlight on artists who raise awareness of issues surrounding mental illness through their work, ‘The Art of Healing’ photography show will elevate the public’s awareness of mental illness. An exhibition of selected artists illuminates the power of narrative art as a tool for challenging stigma and the discrimination associated with mental illness. This exhibition will focus on photographs of various types of artwork which could include sculpture, painting, printmaking and traditional photography all captured in photograph that convey compelling visual narratives by artists.

The “Art of Healing” 2022 group exhibition on the intersection of fine art and the mental health 
This exhibition explores the therapeutic power of the creative process that addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our mental health.

Through photography, painting, sculpture, written word, collage, artists chronicle their journeys from a variety of perspectives and offers powerful, visual portrayals from photographs of their artwork of the emotional impact associated with the mental health in our society.  The exhibition evokes a better understanding of the everyday challenges of those effected by mental illness, honors the lives and memories of those fighting the unbalanced mind and illustrates how art provides a sense of healing, belonging and relating in situations filled with uncertainty.
