The MeCurator Art Gallery in collaboration with SLALA will host a art collection launch, titled “Art Thrives Us – A Journey of Art through Arthritis” on Thursday 15th November, from 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
In collaboration with SLALA, MeCurator would like to showcase a collection by talented artists, who suffer from the restrictive effects of arthritis, lupus and other autoimmune diseases. The collection titled “Art Thrives Us – A Journey of Art through Arthritis” Although the artists are constrained by these ailments, the artists have been able to find a mental and physical freedom through expressive art therapy.
The month long collection will showcase the works of these artists, all pieces will be available for sale & proceeds will go to the charity. The exhibition reinforces the efforts of the MeCurator Gallery to showcase all forms of St Lucian art - by those able, and insome cases - where others would deem them disabled. Dr Amanda King, psychologist Nicole Edgecombe and renowned artist Peter Walcott will also share a few words on the night. The launch night is focused on raising awareness on this condition, asking people to broaden their minds, dig deep into their pockets and support the charities such as SLALA behind arthritis and lupus. This will be a entry free event, where wine and canapés (kindly provided by @tapasstlucia) will be available for attendees.
Experience this insightful collection on the opening night - Thursday 15th November 2018, held at The MeCurator Art Gallery at Massade, Gros Islet, from 7.00pm.
