Editor's Note from Karen Adler: As Antonia Rolls says: 'Art - painting, writing, poetry - can get to places people have locked away that conversation can't.' This video is about her exhibition, A Graceful Death, which tours the UK. The exhibition is intended to deal with issues surrounding death and bereavement and the video is there to support the work that Antonia does.

by Karen Adler,
ATH Asst. Editor of Arts & Art Therapy

I have this strange - not to mention impossible - expectation to always look good, feel good, BE  good. It causes me no-end of misery and yet in all my years upon this planet, I haven’t yet managed to shift this strange and impossible expectation.  It bounces to the foreground of my being at the most inopportune times...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Doing art therapy for myself is a way for me to know what's going on for me at the moment. I've come to see it as a necessary - and enjoyable - aspect of self-care. It also provides me with the guidance I need  to make difficult decisions, to separate the past from the present, this moment from the preceding one and the one that follows, to draw boundaries between myself and another person.

Editor's Note from Karen Stabley: Michael Peluso is carrying on the family tradition of glassblowing which began for his family in Italy and Germany. Michael has taken numerous classes at the Corning Studios of the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York and has studied under glassblowing and flameworking masters such as William Gudenrath, Michael Scheiner, James Nowak, Michael Rogers, Milon Townsend, and Jane Bruce. His work is displayed in galleries, restaurants and shops, including the Harrisburg Art Association of Harrisburg.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: This youtube clip states that, "Karin used art therapy to deal with her eating disorder. Now she makes spoon pendants and sees the beauty that can be created out of mistakes."

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This artistic film with many beautiful clips of nature was made in Finland. The narrative is based on Chief Seattle's response to the American government after they wanted to buy the land from the native Americans. This is the third and the most popular version of his speech as modified in the 1970's. Chief Seattle was a leader of the Suquamish and Duwamish Native American tribes in what is now the U.S. state of Washington. The city of Seattle in the state of Washington is named after him.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Watch as the camera tracks an act of kindness as its passed from one individual to the next. I hope this video inspires you to notice those around you and touch them with kindness. You don't know what challenges the people you pass are facing. A kind word or a gesture goes a long way. Like the construction worker in this clip, you could start a chain reaction and inspire people around you to do the same.

by Lucie Rivard

“Heal the World” is a piece about all races of the world coming together in love and unity to heal the planet.  “An ancient Hopi prophecy, shared by many tribes, tells us of the beginning of the world, when the Creator created four races of four colours, each assigned a task that together would ensure a world where all the life was held in one sacred circle...

 

Editor’s Note: Ideas of healing art through illustrations, reiki and good energy - Lucie Rivard uses her artwork to heal the world through vivid and vibrant colors.

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: Art, and particularly photography because of its accessibility, can give us windows onto another person's world. This video is a particularly powerful example of the strong connection between the arts/art therapy and social justice. During the summer of 2013, LAMP Community, a homeless shelter in Los Angeles, hosted a photography class and gave its members a little something called, "hope.

by Jay Worling

I have been drawing and painting my whole life - well, as long as I have been able to hold a pencil. In fact, I’ve been drawing since before I could get the letters of the alphabet in the right order...

 

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Jay Worling attended a workshop I facilitated at the local Art Gallery on Art Therapy and Depression/Anxiety. She writes about her experience of Scribble Drawing and what they enabled he to see about herself.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: Without language skills, Larry had a life of solitary confinement. Most people assumed that he was mentally retarded and had nothing to communicate. Then he discovered assisted typing with a computer. With facilitated communication, Larry has been able to show the world that he is the same as everybody else. Being able to communicate, has transformed his life. For Larry, painting is language — through his art, he communicates complex views on autism and society.

by Cathryn McEwen

If I have a camera in my hand, I invariably get in very close to the subject. The personal space is invaded and there is a connection between myself and what I am investigating – with my camera lens, or my own eyes. “Up close and personal” is how I like to see the world - to look closer and deeper...

 

Editor's Note from Karen Adler: The recently opened gallery, Art Studios Cooperative, in Gosford NSW, renews my faith in art and in artists. It's the type of art that I, personally, admire - art that is of a high quality, technically masterful, art that has depth, where the translation from concept to actual artwork actually works. And yes, it's vastly different from the art that originates in an art therapy session or art that is done wholly and solely AS therapy. What it does have in common, is that capacity of art to to work with symbols to engage the unconscious and thereby to clarify, to make clear our thinking, our perspective, to go more deeply into ourselves and to return with the gifts of that journey.

 

Arts & Art Therapy 


 

Editor´s Note from Karen Adler: Children at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital, St.Vincent, receive art therapy to help them deal with anxiety, an adverse diagnosis, pain and the possibility of a lifelong illness. Doing art helps them gain a sense of control, of comfort, of being able to play in sometimes traumatic circumstances. The art therapy program can also leave the parents with much-loved mementos created by their children.

ARTS & ART THERAPY
The Alternate Selves of the Artist

Sonia Weiss Durga 1929-2008

Art can be used to heal a psyche or express parts of that psyche that have no other avenue of expression. Sonia Weiss Durga's art is a good example of this. She was a deep, complex person with many aspects to her being.
