KAMLOOPS - Piece of Mind is a national art exhibition that promotes psychological health, works to break the stigma surrounding psychological health and aims to inspire the community to live psychologically healthy lives.

For the first time, the B.C. Psychological Association will be partnering with the Kamloops Arts Council to hold a Piece Of Mind exhibition specific to the Kamloops area. 

The aim of the exhibition is to celebrate healthy coping skills and inspire members of the Kamloops community, through artistic expression, to live psychologically healthy lifestyles. All members of the community (from professional, to beginner) were invited to submit 2D artwork that showcases their Piece of Mind that answers the question "what does psychological health mean to you?", with the hopes of facilitating a platform that will transform these pieces of art into pieces of individual inspiration and motivation. 

The public is invited to view the exhibition and to join us for an opening reception, Friday, Oct. 16, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, 7 Seymour St. West.

The Kamloops Arts Council's Main Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, and Saturday 10am to 4pm. The gallery is located in the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre (7 Seymour Street West) along with the Courthouse Gallery & Gift Shop, Theatre BC and Arnica Artist-Run Centre.
