Sooner or later, we all come to love and grief. It is a part of the human condition. In 2013, artist Kristin Krimmel lost a close friend with whom she had shared a profound love of language and literature. She came to understand that the deepest components of friendship and its loss was simply a cycle of grief and love. These works reflect this cycle.
This annual exhibition is the outcome of an art program began in 2007 by Dr. Mark Welch, Nurse Manage of Acute Mental Health Services for the South Okanagan Similkameen. It is an honour to once again partner with the Penticton Mental Wellness Centre to explore parallels between creativity and mental illness.
