Quest Art Gallery Call for Submission
2017 International Print Exchange: Piece of Mind

Deadline: March 1, 2017
Exhibition Dates: March 24 – May 13, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 24, 7 – 9 pm

Five out of five people have mental health as it is part of what makes us human! More than one in five of us are faced with mental illness each year. The Piece of Mind International Print Exchange encourages the creative process and the therapeutic benefits of creating and experiencing art. In addition to stimulating creation and the exploration of one’s mental health, Piece of Mind is also part of a larger dialogue, striving to end the stigma associated with mental illness and advance understanding of mental health issues. In partnership with the Waypoint Centre for Mental HealthCare, Quest Art is pleased to announce an Open Call for Submissions. Through a variety of print processes, this exchange invites artists to visualize their own insights, experiences or impressions on what affects or gives them “peace of mind”, or simply create from a place that helps maintain your own mental health.

We would like to thank esteemed printmakers Nancy Campbell, Victoria Cowan, Ted Fullerton, Liz Menard, Rod Prouse, Otis Tamasauskas and Frances Thomas for helping us draw attention to the importance of mental health and building a supportive community by agreeing to participate in this event.
