NYA Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition focused on healing. The show will feature over 30 artists and be curated by Shane Townley, Founder & Director of NYA Art Center. Amid this contemporary moment plagued by social, economic, and political instability, many turn to various forms of cultural expression to gain perspective and escape from anxiety-inducing news reports. In response to an increasingly divided and distressed population, the artists in Heal offer powerful commentaries on individual and collective healing, be it in the bodily, environmental, or spiritual sense. The exemplary roster of exhibiting artists include:

Dustin Adamson, Gershon Ament, Harold Barnard, Joanna Bladh, Joseph Blumstein, Heather Brugger, Cool Cat Colors, Michelle Drummond, Åse Marie Fagervik, Melissa Fernandes, Annelise Forster, Michelle Fulton, Andrea Garcia, Jesús Contreras García, Eleni Pittas Gregoriades, Kane Grose, Steve Hare, Tatiana Ilina, Thuy Linh Bennett Kang, Iness Kaplun, Samiha Khashoggi, Kami Kinnison, Cecilie Kolderup, Sherry Krivosheev, Geri Loudenslager, Laura Joy Lustig, Maria Magenta, Jody McGrath, Shani Krebs, Juan Carlos Navarro, Monica Perez, Donald Perry, Dutchess Selah, Gerald Siciliano, Paula Silva, Sirenes, Allen SoveLove, Peter Wahlberk, Shoaib Wazir, Donald White, and Roben Zaghian.
