From a press release:
Marywood University’s art galleries will hold an exhibition titled “Our Natural Call to Art Therapy” from Friday, Feb. 16 through Wednesday, March 21 in the Suraci Gallery at the Shields Center for Visual Arts on Marywood’s campus in Scranton.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Feb. 17 from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
The exhibition focuses on the work of 17 art therapy students and highlights their appreciation for their major and potential career paths. The students express their views and individual understandings of art therapy as well as how this contributes to each of their lives.
Stephanie Wise, clinical assistant professor of art and director of the Art Therapy program at Marywood University, advises the university’s Student Art Therapy Association students, who are able to network and share personal, artistic, educational, and overall professional growth opportunities. This group strives to promote art therapy as a means of life improvement. MUSATA seeks out volunteer opportunities so that its members can gain experience with a variety of populations while lending a helping hand in accordance with Marywood University’s curricular goal of service learning.
