AIM Center Presents "Face It" Exhibition At 2 Galleries In Recognition Of Their 30th Anniversary

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

In recognition of AIM Center’s 30th Anniversary, the public is invited to celebrate the artwork created by their members at two exhibitions.

March 13-April 6 the exhibition will be at the Hart Gallery, 110 East Main St. in Chattanooga.  An opening reception will be held on Wednesday from 5-7 p.m.  Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon-5 p.m. Saturday.

May 3-June 14 the exhibition will be at the AVA Gallery, 30 Frazier Ave. in Chattanooga.  An opening reception will be held on Friday, May 3 from 5-8 p.m.  Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon-5 p.m. Saturday.

"This body of work brings to light the talents and unique insights of a population who are all too often dismissed, neglected or misunderstood by society," officials said. "The strength of imagery is directly proportional to the honesty and need from which it was created.

"With this exhibition we look through the eyes of people with mental illness. In doing, so we broaden our understanding of the spectrum of human experience. Therein lies the value of this art, and the people that created it. Their visions, their voices, communicate and provoke, making us more aware and carry us to places beyond ourselves."
