National Traveling Exhibit Exploring Mental Health through Art Coming to Fergus Falls
Fergus Falls, MN – The Kaddatz Gallery, in partnership with the Lake Region Arts Council and Springboard for the Arts will host a national touring exhibition titled “Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art.” The exhibit will be on display at the Kaddatz Gallery and the Lake Region Arts Council from August 8 through October 6.
This Exhibition was organized by the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. “Mindful” features 30 works created by 14 contemporary artists with an emphasis on the topics of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and tendencies, and PTSD, the exhibition explores the impact that mental illness has on society, and how the arts can encourage positive self- expression and guide effective mental health promotion and treatment.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, mental illnesses account for a larger proportion of disability in developed countries than any other group of illnesses, including cancer and heart disease. In 2004, an estimated 25% of adults in the United States reported having a mental illness in the previous year. However, unlike cancer and heart disease, which have become widely discussed in the public sphere, mental disorders remain hidden behind a wall of secrecy, leading to stigma, misunderstanding and neglect.

The Magic World of Mandalas: Art by Susan Sheeley
An exhibition of mandalas created by Susan Sheeley will be on display at the Otter Tail County Historical Society from October 2 through November 11, 2017. Susan first became interested in mandalas as a means of relaxing while coloring them. In 2014, she decided she wanted to try drawing them. She has created approximately 195 designs since. Susan describes what it is like to create these graphic delights as follows: “I am continually amazed at how each design takes on a personality of its own. When drawing mandalas, I follow a basic meditative approach by starting in the center and working outwards in a circular motion. I draw the main frame of the mandala until I get to the width that I want. I then go back to the center and work in the more intricate details in the same manner.”
Meet Susan on Wednesday, October 11 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at OTCHS. Susan will tell you about her journey to creating her own mandala designs and what inspires her to create. You will also be given the opportunity to color one of her mandala designs. The October 11 event is free and open to the public.
The historical society is open Monday-Friday 9-5. Admission is $5. For more information contact OTCHS at 218-736-6038 or find us on Facebook.
