  • Monday, November 7th
  • Wednesday, November 16th
  • Tuesday, November 22nd

Art from the series will be displayed in the month-long exhibition at Lakeview Library in December to promote positive emotional health through awareness, education, and encouragement.

"Finding outlets to express emotion is crucial in maintaining positive mental health. However, it is often difficult to put our feelings into words" says Rhiannon Gurley, founder of Our Vibrant Community. "This exhibit showcases how art can help in expressing and processing feelings to build strength and resiliency. Each piece of art is accompanied by a narrative that tells this story."

Registration is recommended; please use the link below or call Lakeview Library at 608-246-4547.
