Photographers, painters and writers from the My Voice Media Center and Integrated Services art and writing classes will show their talents at the Brandon-Mitchell Gallery during the First Friday art walk in Downtown Visalia on Friday, Sept. 9 from 5-8 p.m.
(The art walk has been postponed until the second Friday this month because of Labor Day.)
They will show paintings, photographs and videos as well as read their stories and poems. The show will be up through the end of October. A second reception is Oct. 7.
Consumers find art to be a calming and healing way to express themselves.
“I’ve learned a lot about myself,” said Lenora. “In creative writing, you delve into the inner psyche. And it’s amazing how much work goes into a 30-second video.”
“Art has totally made a difference in my life,” said Carol. “It grounds me. When I’m doing my art, I’m calmer, more focused.”
The receptions are open free to the public.
Refreshments will be served.
