In our complex world of polarizing social conflict and personal trauma, it can be challenging to find ways to cope with stress and anxiety, and to affect constructive dialogue. Art is a powerful tool that people have used historically to vocalize major social issues like inequality, homelessness and environmental pollution. It can also be a healing tool for those struggling with addiction, abuse, depression and debilitating illnesses.
This exhibition will feature a collection of creative works by Central PA artists and show how people process these issues for therapeutic release, social dialogue, and in some cases, to affect change and transformation.
We welcome visual art, ready for hanging, as well as video, poetry/prose, and music. All entries must be accompanied by an artist’s statement and should be appropriate for demonstrating/viewing in the family-friendly setting of PCCA Gallery.
This group exhibition that runs from July 6 to August 18, with an opening reception on Friday, July 6 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
