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.
The 2019 event will be held at the Kelowna Art Gallery on Friday, October 4th.
*70% of each piece sold goes directly to the artist and 30% supports the ArtWorks Studio in our Wellness Development Centre.
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.
