"Sounds of Silence" Mental Health/Depression
The Saunders Gallery is proud to present a community
giving voice to
an illness that is not clearly defined or understood.
This exhibit and
project has been created by the inspiration of a friend named Jim. Jim found
himself battling an uncertain illness, depression. By the Grace of GOD, Jim found peace, by
finding the right place for diagnosis, treatment and healing. This life
changing experience sent a call to action for him to share his experience by
commissioning a painting depicting his emotional battle with depression, with
the intent of helping just one other person in their flight with depression.
The pastel painting
by Bev Saunders, is the feature for this exhibit. The painting was created by
the use of several inspiring photos and images that Jim had shared relating to
his feelings and emotions. The painting depicts a “being”, lost and detached
from the world, feeling helpless and obscure. The hands of the Saving Grace
that are always there to uplift and heal, are not acknowledged or felt when
left to flounder in the deep, dark and lonely space of depression. The smaller
beings in the space, represent others who are experiencing the effects of
depression, unaware of each other’s presence. The clouds have
impressions of faces, speaking with voices that fill the mond with lies and deceit, keeping the light of truth buried and dim.

The hands of grace, is the place where Jim
found healing and freedom.
There has been
an open call for art and poetry related to the topic since February. The
gallery is accepting submissions throughout the month, giving a voice to
those who wish to share their experience, whether it is the patient, family
member, caregiver or medical provider.
Prints will be available for sale and proceeds
to benefit our local mental illness organizations such asCaleo Counseling Services of
Warren Washington County, NY
