On My Mind
May 29 - Jun 12
On My Mind is a pop-up exhibition that explores the role that art plays in addressing one's mental health and the healing properties that creating can have.
Eight artists - Pip Dryden, Adrianna Singleton, Nyasha Dube, Faith Wandler, Shay Ritchie, Arianna Tooke, and Jetta and Jade Loudon are a mix of formal and informally trained artists who present works created out of personal experiences, both vulnerable and intimate. This exhibition addresses the ways in which we, as individuals, process our experiences through creative practice.
This group of artists aims to bring awareness to the need for self care, and hope to contribute to the ongoing discourse surrounding themes of mental health awareness.
As a way of engaging the wider community, we invite you to be vulnerable with us by anonymously sharing your own stories. Guests are invited to share private moments, secrets, advice, or letters of solidarity with private written letters posted into a box at the gallery.
The Laundry Room Collective is an artist collective created by Brooklyn Bellmond and Moozhan Ahmadzadegan. Our mission is to foster the arts, creativity, and community. We hope that with our platform we may build up our community through initiatives that promote diversity and inclusiveness, that we may support emerging artists, and engage with creative and critical thinking. Our name derives from our shared studio space within a repurposed laundry room in the Lake County ART House which is situated on the unceded and traditional territory of the Syilx people.
