CALL TO ARTIST

 THEME:

Every artist at some stage in their artistic career has used their art making activities as a therapeutic tool toward the process of healing, clearing the mind, and self expression. Whether working through pain, loss, depression, illness or other emotional struggles, art helps to heal the soul.  

ArtServe seeks inspirational art pieces that reveal a deeper, underlying message of how art has helped uplift and rejuvenate the spirit. We seek pieces which allow the art work to be a communication tool which creates a vital exchange between artist and patron. REFLECT will be a multi-media exhibition exploring how art heals the soul as both a means of expression and a therapeutic tool. REFLECT is created in collaboration with local non-profit organizations.
