Wild Heart GalleryThe term, “manifold” can be described in a number of ways, but in application to the latest Wild Heart Gallery exhibition, means “having numerous different parts, elements, features, forms, etc.” This show’s theme centers around visual narrative investigation of Southwestern College staff, faculty, and students into the sacred pieces which formed their journey to knowing the self, community, and other. Much of the work was inspired from the experiences in the first year classes of Multicultural Perspectives in Art Therapy/Counseling with Diverse Populations and Archetypal Psychology. The opening night gala took place on Monday, May 22nd. The Wild Heart Gallery is proud to present a series of artist statements from this exhibition, which runs until the start of July.

Title: Sing While You May (Integrity)
wash my hands of that which doesn’t suit me (and polish the things that do)
mean what I sing (la, la-la, la-la)
take things into my own hands (especially the mitts of others)
stand with fortitude (and move with rhythm)
remember my courage (and ridiculous nature)
hear my fear (but choose when to listen)
Is to live with integrity.
So, I choose to sing while I may (especially when it’s off key).
