Unfortunately, mental illness is still a taboo topic despite the fact that so many people are suffering, not only the patients themselves, but also their families and close friends. My goal is to encourage a conversation through my art.
Therefore, it is a great privilege for me that my art quilt “Wall of Depression” was selected to be exhibited at the Rubenstein Arts Center at Duke University. In addition, I was invited to be a panelist for the discussion of art and mental health.
In this exhibit, the organizer Dr. Melissa Miller will showcase visual art work that highlights active efforts toward creating and maintaining mental health and wellness. You can read more about this exhibition at https://artscenter.duke.edu/event/the-art-of-mental-health-exhibit/.
You can also read a little bit more about this exhibition and my contribution in an article published in the November issue of Carolina Arts.
Sacred Threads – Traveling Exhibition
Sacred Threads is a prestigious juried art quilt exhibition about joy, inspiration, spirituality, healing, grief, and peace & brotherhood. The 2019 exhibition premiered in Herndon, VA, from July 11 to July 28, 2019. About 30 art quilts from this exhibition were selected to travel across the US. I’m delighted that my piece “Illumination #1” is part of the traveling exhibition.
