Mental Health – Art Works!

October 13 @ 10:00 am - October 22 @ 4:30 pm

Free

In 2000, the inaugural Mental Health Week Art Exhibition was held at the Gosford Regional Gallery & Arts Centre. It has now become an annual event to celebrate Mental Health Month on the Central Coast.

Mental Health – Art Works! is an art exhibition with a difference – it provides people whose lives have been affected by mental illness the opportunity to use art as a form of expression and it engages the Central Coast community in a better understanding of mental health issues.

Each year artists of all ages exhibit a diverse range of artworks which includes all the different mediums in painting as well as sculpture, drawings, ceramics, photography and writing. Many artists share the inspiration behind their artwork and some of their personal story, which creates a very powerful and unique viewing experience for visitors to the exhibition.

This Exhibition is highly regarded in the local community with well over 1800 people visiting the Exhibition in 2016.
