Exhibition Theme: This exhibition seeks a new definition for the word “medicine” through art that investigates different kinds of healing in varied areas such as self, others, earth and society. An examination of transcendental influences art has on healing whether it be in the process of creating art is the healer or the art itself resonating or facilitating healing qualities will be shown. Seeing medicine and healing in a 21st Century view will help frame this definitional search.
Artworks will be exhibited which view medicine in new and different ways so that a true exploration and definition can be undertaken; this could include critically examining the value to be found in varied areas of healing such as in self, others, earth and society and possibly finding connections between these-but this is only an example.
Sales: It is expected that all work exhibited be for sale. Sales will be encouraged. Galaudet Gallery retains 40% on all sales. The prices you submit during the entry process are the retail prices the gallery will adhere to throughout the duration of the exhibition.
