“A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS” There is no better time to acknowledge this English Adage. Our community has shown an increase in self-isolation, depression, anxiety and stress, just to name few. Mental Health is Vital! The art that you will view and have an opportunity to bid on has been donated by individuals who have found their voice through visual expression. Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to purchase and support art that was part of a process, reflecting, coping and healing.
