Thematically based, the exhibition, H E A L I N G S, addresses and explores multiple aspects of, "evidence-based-art". The term encompasses a growing body of research, employing rigorous standards, that supports the assertion; art heals.
The concept of healing art is referenced in art making practices as disparate as tantric and fractal art, prehistoric cave painting, Buddhist sand painting, African design patterns, and certain aspects of traditional landscape painting. In creating works for this exciting exhibition, artists explore the philosophies framing these practices as well as others.
This extraordinarily powerful exhibit will encompass a wide range of artistic viewpoints and approaches to art as a healing agency. The works provide a spanning context, expressing its' visual voice in the various components of culture; politics, society, mental and physical health, environment, and spirituality.
Also being presented are fifteen artists of the ARTCURIAN artists’ group, whose murals created for the 2010 exhibition, “Artists Speaking for the Spirits”, will be installed in the main lobby of the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation. New and recent works by all participating artists, addressing the theme of the exhibition, H E A L I N G S, will be featured in the Center for Art and Cultures’ Skylight Gallery.
