Tethered by Light: A Group Exhibition Inspired by National Mental Health Awareness Month of May
April 23 - June 4
Tethered by Light: A group exhibition inspired by National Mental Health Awareness Month will be on view in the Carter Kelsey Lobby Gallery, at the entrance of AVA Gallery and Art Center, April 23 through June 4, 2021.
AVA Gallery and Art Center, located at 11 Bank Street in Lebanon, NH in collaboration with West Central Behavioral Health, 9 Hanover Street in Lebanon, NH, is pleased to present, Tethered by Light: A Group Exhibition Inspired by National Mental Health Awareness Month of May. As artists we create work inspired by our thoughts, our dreams, by what we see or feel. We spend much of our time alone in the studio, alone in our head. Through our work we connect to others, the connection is invisible and impermanent, yet transcendent; we are tethered together by light. The exhibition is comprised of artwork depicting themes related to light, spirit, hope, community, isolation, and Covid-19 imposed isolation. “There are various kinds of light that are available to us that we may need at times to stay tethered, to know that we are tethered or to re-tether if we have lost our line.” – Jan Sandman, artist
