art of practice

For awhile Lauren Leone and I have been talking about putting together an exhibition of artwork by our fellow art therapists. We teamed up with the New England Art Therapy Association to organize the "The Art of Practice" an exhibition of artwork by 20 artists who are also art therapists. The idea behind the title is that practice can have multiple meanings for an art therapist including one's art practice, one's practice as an art therapist and also the word practice at its simplest level. The exhibition caught the attention of the Metro (hence the newspaper clipping posted above) and the Boston Globe. Read the Globe's 'Healing Visions' review online. The exhibition is on view at WSAC 9/3-9/26/09, Saturdays 12-4 and by appointment.
