Art: The Language of Healing is the second in Life Force Arts Center's 2017 series of exhibits, Art: The Language of... exploring the power of the Arts in Learning, Healing and Community Building.

Art: The Language of Healing explores theincredible healing power of the arts. Visual, literary and performing arts help us perceive thoughts, feelings and energies below the surface of our conscious mind. The arts are an ancient and effective form of shifting energy and increasing physical, emotional, spiritual and social well being. If your spirit has been encouraged by a rousing song, if your body has felt energized by lively dancing, if you havereleased emotion by laughing or crying during a movie, been soothed by harmonious colors in artwork or gained insight about your own life through the story of characters in a novel, you know in your bones that art is the language of healing.

The exhibit features a wide variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media and installation. Life Force Arts Center Artistic Director Joan Forest Mage says, "It's fascinating to see the interpretations artists have about the theme. At LFAC, our art exhibits create sacred space in which events become healing rituals: performances, concerts, poetry readings, workshops, lectures are all infused with transformative power to heal and enlighten those present."
