People Incorporated’s Artability program is an annual celebration of the creativity and contributions of people with mental illness to our community. The show will feature some 300 pieces of art, from landscapes and nature photography to anime and abstracts. Artists can sell their work and keep 90% of the sales price. The remaining 10% goes back into the Artability program.
This year’s exhibition will feature a special installation of artwork by people who experience auditory hallucinations (they hear voices due to their mental illness) combined with recordings of the artists talking about their work. The art for this installation will be created at a special workshop, co-led by artist Ethan Heidlebaugh, winner of this year’s poster contest. Ethan participated in the show about six years ago and recently became involved again through the workshops that are part of Artability throughout the year.
