Rodman Hall Art Centre
109 St Paul Crescent, St. Catharines
The Willow Community is a non-profit arts organization that
provides free art classes to individuals in Niagara with lived
experience of mental health and/or addiction. Through a partnership
with Rodman Hall Art Centre, members attend workshops
at the gallery facilitated by local artists, musicians, writers, and
educators. These programs provide a safe space that inspire
ability, creativity, empowerment, community, and healing.
This exhibition will showcase works created by members this
season, including a collaborative abstract painting installation,
creative writing presentations, and performances from the forthcoming
Songs from the Willow music release. Seasonal member
showcases help to facilitate dialogue, reduce stigma, and
celebrate the value of diverse voices in our artistic community.
A free community event. Everyone welcome!
