Creativity Explored, the premier San Francisco nonprofit visual art gallery and studio for artists with developmental disabilities, presents Mind Place, a new exhibition exploring the psychology of place. From depictions of Ferris wheels that evoke memories, African landscapes, to psychedelic abstractions of subjects that inhabit another space entirely, the exhibition leads the viewer on a journey to ethereal environments that are physical yet based in the mind. The exhibition includes selected works by Ian Adams, Jay Herndon, Camille Holvoet, Laron Bickerstaff, Kathy Wen, and Marilyn Wong. Curated by Visual Arts Instructor Leeza Doreian.

Evoking both physical and imaginary worlds, the multimedia artwork in this exhibition offer the viewer diverse perspectives into the production of a visual space that is both interior and exterior.

Emotional, provocative, and inviting narrative, the more than two dozen artworks included challenge traditional viewership by expanding visual depictions of a place or space into the subjective territory of a “mindscape.”

For the past 35 years, Creativity Explored has given artists with developmental disabilities the means to create and share their work with the community, celebrating the power of art to change lives. Located in the vibrant cultural and dining corridor that transverses San Francisco’s Mission District, Creativity Explored provides a supportive studio environment, including individualized instruction from mentoring artists, quality supplies, and professional opportunities to exhibit and sell their art. The organization establishes these artists’ work as an emerging and increasingly important contribution to the contemporary art world.
