The healing potential of human expression is powerful — that’s “The Power of Art to Heal” — the theme for the next virtual ArtConnect Forum, second of a two-part series, from the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, on Thursday, January 28 from 7 to 8pm.
This Forum’s fascinating speakers are Linda Martin-Mills, R.N. patient advocate and patient experience manager at Capital Health, and quilter presenting “The Reluctant Quilter” about falling into fiber arts and how it has helped her professionally and personally; and Sarah Bernotas, artist, teacher, and art therapist presenting “Finding Your Center in the Circle” about the healing art of mandala creation. The Forum also welcomes artist Agata May’Kowska who will speak about how her past experience and present volunteer work brings awareness to psychological abuse and provides victims creative means to express their struggles and hopes for healing.
Presentations will be followed by a live Q&A session.
ArtConnect Forum is held three times each year and is a highlight of the HV Arts Council program, ArtConnect: Creating Opportunities for Artists. Each Forum features fascinating speakers with big imaginations who share their work, inspiration, and creative process, and provides an opportunity to interact with fellow artists and art lovers.
