Richard Boulet + Sue Seright: awareness of an altered world

Sue Seright, "The Waning Gibbous Moon", mixed media constructions
awareness of an altered world brings together the work of Richard Boulet and Sue Seright. This exhibition, in Gallery A, explores the impact of mental health issues. It runs concurrently with Fighting Normal by Laurie MacFayden and Amy Willans in Gallery B until March 2, 2013. The gallery will be closed on Saturday, February 16, but otherwise is open from Wed-Fri, 10-4 and Sat 12-4.

Seright describes her process this way: My art is one way to break free of the stigmas and allow it to speak about my own personal journey with mental health challenges. It also gives me a way to visual track where I have been and where I might go. The book tells my story within a story. Like Bipolar ll, it is composed of two parts: the original book itself and the carved away pieces which reconfigure the second story to make a whole.
