Virtual Community Circle: The Healing Art of Semerit Strachan

This is a virtual event that will take place via Zoom.

This event takes place from 12:00 to 1:00 PM CST.

Join us for a conversation with Semerit Strachan, about the healing power of art and her current exhibit, Consciousness Beyond Form, on view at the Granite Area Arts Council Gallery in Granite Falls. Strachan and her art asks us, “In this day and age, with the violence and illness around us, with all the uncertainty about society and our future, why make art? And what does this art have to say to us?”

Through Mia’s partnership with the Cultural Wellness Center, Dr. Strachan hosted tours and study groups of Egypt’s Sunken Cities exhibit for the African community. She also acted as a co-curator for The Enduring Soul, still available online. In Fall 2020, she led a virtual painting class on Legacy, inviting participants to examine personal stories of endurance, courage, and the values we share with our children and communities, asking herself, her students and audiences, if the telling of these stories can be healing for us and a legacy for generations not yet born?

“Consciousness Beyond Form” represents work of the past seven years and is currently on exhibit until June 19 at the Granite Area Arts Council Gallery in Granite Falls. Find more information about the exhibition here.
