Women Healing Women Art Event

The month of October is Women's Health month, we have invited local women artists to share their art to encourage healing, health, spirituality and well-being. 

There will be new works from our gallery artists as well as some exciting new types of artisan wares from new additions to the gallery and emerging artists.

Goddess Tree by Chantelle Flint

" Positive energy and the inner well being are tied to creativity. If you are doing well, creating art from an inner place of wellness radiates through the universe. If you are feeling not well, being creative can be a struggle but releasing through art can help in healing. On my path to being cancer free, my art has grown and expanded. I believe that as an artist, wellness as a whole is tied directly to our creativity. Celebrating Women's Health month and providing a positive atmosphere for the women artists to create, is very personal for me and I hope you enjoy the journey and the wonderful creations"
