RPAC Gallery is excited to present “Healing Devices” Exhibit with The Westport Artist Collective. Art heals both the artist and the audience. Healing devices for the mediation of physical, emotional and spiritual wounds have historically shaped the creative arts as icons, amulets and talismans to visionary journeys.
Our 21st century world is facing forces determined to eradicate compassion, cooperation and community responsibility. Coupling that anxious trend, the COVID pandemic has brought disruption, and sorrow to many lives. The artists of the Artists Collective of Westport’s Gathering Group have created their individually unique healing devices to weave hope into the fabric of our lives, to reimagine, reconnect, and restore. Healing devices are as varied as their creators.
At once beautiful, magical and syncretic, practical and abstract, these emblematic artworks call out to be held and admired, and become a focus for contemplation and inspiration. When brought into our lives and placed in significant spaces, they serve as reminders that we are healing our community and ourselves. As we bring these touchstones into our hearts, they become affirmations for our futures.
RPAC Gallery is located at 410 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT.
