Press release from the Arts Council of Greater New Haven
The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Artist. Art Therapist in the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery at the Arts Council of Greater New Haven. Organized by Debbie Hesse, this exhibition will be on display from Thurs., Apr. 3, through Fri., May 9. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A public reception is scheduled for Fri., Apr. 4, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Artist. Art Therapist looks at artwork created by art therapists and considers the relationship between these two different sides of the creative self. The exhibition aims to answer the following questions art therapists are faced with on a daily basis: How do the passion to help and the passion to create impact one’s own artistic output? How do they inform each other? As an artist and art therapist, how does one navigate between one’s private, meditative and public self—emotionally, physically and spiritually?
Regional and local art therapists are invited to present their work and share stories on the exhibition blog. To submit artwork visit artistarttherapist.wordpress.com, or contact Debbie Hesse at the Arts Council, (203) 772-2788.
