Art and Healing Exhibition Reception Online

Join us for a celebration of this important exhibition. We will view the works in the show and have an opportunity to hear from the juror about her selection process and from the artists about their works. Register to attend online HERE.
We invited artists to explore the theme of Art and Healing, not only as it relates to the Covid-19 pandemic and the profound impact it has had on our lives, but also to reflect on past life experiences or feelings relating to healing from any condition or challenge. As we slowly emerge from the quarantines of the past few months, WWAC seeks to create an exhibition that looks at art as a healing tool, reflecting the realities, feelings, or experiences during this surreal time, or from other past events, either personal or public.
