DRIVEN: works by AIM center Members
MARCH 6 - APRIL 24
The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) and the AIM Center are partnering to host an exhibit of works by 26 AIM Center members. AVA’s mission is to connect visual arts and the community, so each year, AVA partners with another local nonprofit to host an exhibition that represents their unique mission. The AIM Center, located here in Chattanooga, provides consumer driven psychiatric rehabilitation services that enhance recovery in the living, working and social environment.
Included in this exhibit are works by members of the AIM Center who have participated in the studio arts program for the past 12-24 months under the supervision of Judith Mogul. The work is a direct reflection of their ambition and need to have art in their daily life. The exhibit is organized around eight themes that developed out of their class projects, including landscapes, abstraction, the figure, self-portraits, still lives, transportation, reliefs, and mother and child.
“The selected pieces are as varied as the individual personalities and sensibilities of those that created them. In any case, the work attests to the high level of aesthetics and lucidity that can be achieved when individuals are given an opportunity to create and encouraged to share their different realities,” says AIM art instructor, Judith Mogul.
