ST. GEORGE – Artwork created by those affected by epilepsy will be traveling from Salt Lake City for its first showing in Southern Utah since Artilepsy was started in 2010 by the Epilepsy Association of Utah. This exhibit illustrates the profound effect that epilepsy can have on human life and the courage, humor and imagination many show in facing it.
The exhibit will be featured at the the Snow Canyon Clinic at 272 East Center Street in Ivins through January, with its debut Friday from 5:30-7 p.m. Thereafter, the exhibit may be seen anytime on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Jan. 31.
Artilepsy, now in its fourth year, was developed with the University of Utah Clinical Neurosciences Center, and the Epilepsy Association of Utah. The exhibit brings together the original artwork, photography and home crafts by people of all ages who live with epilepsy and seizure disorders.
Renowned photographer, Robert Hall, donated a black and white piece ‘Dahlia’ which will be unveiled at the opening on Friday.
“It is the duty of an artist,” Hall said, “to create a sense of beauty that moves us out of our internal realm to appreciate what we might not have seen before.”
Opening night will include music and light ‘hors d’oeuvres.
