New Art Exhibit and Fundraiser for Mental Health


Fourteen poets paired with fourteen artists create a unique and important exhibit that gives expression to the challenges of living with mental illness. By sharing their gifts, these poets and artists hope to remove the stigma and shed light on their experiences. See and Hear: Poetry and Art for Mental Health is presented by Communitas Supportive Care Society. In addition to this art exhibit, the Chilliwack Visual Arts Association (CVAA) is holding a fundraiser to support mental health programs in Chilliwack. “One foot by One foot” is a series of one-foot-square canvases, painted by CVAA and community artists. These paintings will be available for sale throughout the Hear and See exhibition.
This exhibit runs from Dec 13 to Jan 19 at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery at 9201 Corbould Street in Chilliwack. Wednesdays through to Saturdays from noon – 5 pm, as well as before some evening concerts.
The reception is on Saturday December 15, 1-4 pm. Admission is free.
