Please join us for a wine and cheese opening reception on October 1st, 5pm-7pm. The show will be up from September 28th- November 1st.
1/5 people suffer with mental illness, a daily struggle which is invisible and unkown if not shared. On October 1st, the walls of 49west will be covered with abstractions of past and current struggles, feelings, emotions and symptoms in the hopes of sparking dialogue and raising funds for mental illness awareness and support. I feel this is an important dialogue, especially for men, who are told to walk it off, stuff it and called less masculine if they are lucky enough to be self aware. 20% of all art sales will go to NAMI of Anne Arundel County and a Rep from the organization will be on site at the reception. http://www.namiaac.org/
