Healing Studio 2018 Exhibition
An exhibition celebrating the creativity of the FAC's Healing Studio participants.
January 12 - January 27, 2018
Reception: Friday, January 19, 2018, from 6:00 - 9:00 PM
The FAC Gallery will host the 2018 Healing Studio Exhibition from January 12 to January 27, 2018. This annual exhibition highlights the creativity and self-expression of participants of the Firehouse Art Center’s weekly Healing Studio program. The Firehouse invites the Norman community to join us in celebrating these individuals during an opening reception on January 16, from 6 to 9 PM.
The Healing Studio program nurtures and provides an outlet for the creative expressions of individuals with varying degrees of cognitive, physical, and learning abilities. The program’s weekly sessions are conducted in a positive, supportive atmosphere with projects that help students link visual art expression to their personal experiences and emotions in a way that is communicative, healing, and confidence building.
The exhibition supports the artistic endeavors of these individuals, while providing gallery attendees with insight into the Healing Studio program. Artwork in the show reflects the topics and visual art instruction explored during the program over the past year. Inspiration is drawn from a multitude of subjects including the work of master artists and current events, in a way that directly builds connections between the program’s participants, their community, and their self-expression.
The Firehouse Art Center is funded in part by select grants from the Oklahoma Arts Council, Norman Arts Council, Allied Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the City of Norman, as well as corporate sponsorships from Republic Bank & Trust and Fowler Automotive. The FAC’s programming would not be possible without the support of individual donors and memberships.
