Gallery @ VT


Healing Art
Exhibition Dates:   June 3 - July 30, 2015

This month the Gallery @ VT will continue showcasing “Healing Art” a collaborative exhibit by artists Michelle Malloch, Amy Lockard, & Kelly Darke.

 

Photographer, Michelle M. Malloch, is an Interior Designer for Henry Ford Health System and coordinator of the Healing Arts Program.  She has always had a passion for the arts and a love of photography. In 2009, she took a life changing photography trip to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with Monte Nagler.  “I love being able to capture the beauty of nature and architecture with my camera, preserve it and share it with others.  Taking the time to stop and look closely at a subject opens up a whole new world of composition possibilities.”

Kelly Darke

Fiber Artist Kelly Darke writes, “Along with painting, fiber and textile techniques have been a focus of my work for over a decade.  I am currently creating fiber art that incorporates painting, either on the original fabric or on the fiber piece when it’s complete.  I combine sewing, embroidery, recycled fabrics and fibers to create an abstract piece with layers of texture.  I actively think of positive thoughts and peaceful, comforting ideas as I work in attempt to embed those thoughts into the work itself.  

In addition to creating my own art, I work as an art therapist and teach others the benefits and healing aspects of art.”

Photographer Amy Lockard writes, “through my photography, I try to convey the importance of ‘being present in the moment’ in order to fully absorb the beauty and healing powers of nature.  I believe that when you are present in the moment you can let go of pain from the past and fear of the future.  It is my goal to share these beautiful experiences through my camera to bring peace and healing through art.  My photography is primarily of landscapes in nature, with an emphasis on locations in Michigan.”

This art exhibit at the Gallery@VT is free and open to the public: 

Monday – Friday 10 am – 2 pm, one hour prior to and during public performances at the theater, as well as by appointment.  The Gallery@VT is closed on holidays.

The gallery is located at 50400 Cherry Hill Rd., Canton, 734/394-5300.
