Nature is often a source of inspiration
for many artists. In times of despair, nature can also be a source for solace, peace and rejuvination. Getting invlolved in some form or creative outlet can be a positive and healthy way of
dealing with negative emotions.
Coinciding with Mental Health Week 2018, the 'Nature Nurtures' exhibition explores the healing powers of artistic expression with nature the inspiration for the works.
A diverse compilation of artworks are
presented by artists who understand mental health issues from their own personal experience and who find comfort through immersion in creative expression and in nature.
