The Gallery exhibits emerging and established artists having created beautiful and intriguing works on paper, paintings, mixed media, sculptures and fine textiles/jewelry. The mission of Studio Retreat’s Art Gallery is to expose our community to new works of art and provide artists exposure to new communities. Studio Retreat’s Art Gallery features local artists and also artists from around the country. At Studio Retreat, students are provided the space, materials and inspiration to create original, unique and beautiful art in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Studio Retreat also offers professional Art Therapy to help people who have experienced illness, trauma or challenges in living. Mary’s private art therapy practice includes treatment for clients with closed-head injuries, PTSD, depression and anxiety. Through the process of creating healing art, the client finds self-awareness and skills to cope with symptoms, ease the impact of traumatic experiences, increase self-confidence and improve cognitive abilities.
