'Moonlight & Shadow' | 'Empathetic' @ Alexi Era Gallery

'Moonlight & Shadow' for 'Empathetic' at Alexi Era Gallery & Publishing in partnership with The You Rock Foundation, opens tonight! 
This exhibition is very close to my heart as it helps to bring awareness and sincere understanding to the intense and often painful affliction of mental health disorders.

Emapthic
Opening Reception: March 5 (6-8pm)
Runs: March 5 – 26, 2016

This exhibition is created in a partnership with The You Rock Foundation. One in Four people have or will struggle from a diagnosable mental health struggle in their lifetime. There is an intense need for awareness of this difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work. Each artist will work with a mental health disorder of choice based on personal experience or outside influences that have impacted their lives. Art is an invaluable, an incredible resource to educate people on mental health crisis we face worldwide and the stigmas unfortunately still attached to them. This exhibition hopes to bring hope, understanding and awareness to a very important topic.

Artists Exhibited: Anita Inverarity, Anja Altenburg Laursen, Anka Lavriv, Aunia Kahn, Bella Harris, Blaine Schanter, Bob Doucette, Catherine Moore, Chris Mars, Damian Chaves, Deborah Jackson, Emma Overman, Encarni Diaz, Erich J.

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
