The Clarity Art Space illuminates and demonstrates how healing occurs through the arts.
The founder, Holly Smith, is a trained art therapist and artist. She believes that creative expression naturally brings a richness to our lives that cannot be achieved any other way. Clarity Art Space is a gathering site to collect and share creative imagery and voices around how the arts are used in healing and expression. The gallery will grow to include virtual exhibits around specific social themes designed to enrich understanding of different perspectives while encouraging conversation and expression through the arts. The invitation to participate in submitting artwork is open to anyone in the community.
Art submissions are open to the public. Submitters must be 18 or over. Submissions will be reviewed by Clarity Ohio Gallery administrators before being published on the site. Submitters must complete the online form and agree to authorize their work for public viewing. Clarity Ohio does not intend to participate in the sale of artwork from this site as the purpose of the Clarity Art Space is to share and inspire reflection. For questions, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Title: In The Shadows
Media: Finger painted acrylic on canvas
Artist Statement: The bird represents curiosity and quiet courage. It is facing a dark forest filled with shadows. When we allow ourselves to be curious about the darker parts of ourselves, we can have more courage to explore these territories without fear.
