Coast Mental Health Resource Centre is showcasing artwork created by clients who are recovering from mental illness.
The art show and sale kicks off on Thursday, May 31, at a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. and runs until June 8 at Coast (1225 Seymour Street).
Coast Mental Health Resource Centre is a cooperative community that works to create a barrier-free, safe, and accepting environment where people with mental illnesses have the chance to build human connections, become self-sufficient, and discover their strengths and talents.
Coast has worked in the Downtown South/West End neighbourhoods since 1993 to provide community mental-health support to those with a serious mental illness.
Proceeds from the sale of paintings, sketches, mixed-media pieces, photography, and sculpture will go directly to artists who are members of Coast.
