WIMMERA Uniting Care launched its Mental Health Art Week exhibition on Monday night with a theme celebrating the Spring season and what it meant to artists.

About 30 people gathered in the Wimmera Community Centre for the launch, which included more than 25 paintings, mixed media works and small sculptures.

Uniting Care chief executive Wendy Sturgess said it was a special occasion.

“Art is such a great way to demonstrate where people are at in the journey of mental health and recovery.

“Wherever you are on that spectrum you can find some medium of art to express that.”

Horsham artist Katie Waterfield contributed her work with the message ‘live, love, laugh’ and said visitors to her home liked it the best.
