The Deep End

May 9 – June 21, 2014

Reception: Friday, May 9, 7pm-10pm

The Deep End is an exhibition that presents work in various mediums centering on the physical, emotional and financial effects of mental illness and mental disease on individuals and society. The effects of mental health encompasses people from all walks of life, regardless of their cultural, social or economical background. The cultural biases, stigmas, and stereotypes associated with these topics can impact one’s human rights and dignity. Many times, our understanding and comprehension of mental health is skewed, resulting in misdiagnosis and politically incorrect mockery. These topics have also been associated with recent tragic events and opinions about the pharmaceutical industry.

This exhibition was chosen by the members of Whitdel Arts.

Exhibiting artists: Danny Cicchelli, Deborah Marlowe Kashdan, Greg Fadell, Ellie Dent, Holly Ballard Martz, Jennifer Allevato, Joan Wynn Sylvia White, Katina Bitsicas, Jon McCahill, Laura Drapac, Melissa Jones, Natasha Beste, Nicole R. Grove, Susan Vitali, Deirdre Sargent, Peter Matthews, Anna Schaap, Nicole Foran.

The exhibition will run from May 9- June 21, 2014.  This event is free and open to the public. All ages welcome. Open gallery hours are Saturdays during exhibitions, noon-3pm, or by appointment.  For more information, e-mail Gualberto Orozco at gualberto@whitdelarts.com, or Erin Schiller at erin@whitdelarts.com .  For a full schedule of exhibitions and events at Whitdel Arts, please visit www.whitdelarts.com
