New art exhibit in downtown La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Fannin Counseling & Art Therapy, at 129 6th Street South, will display the works of 25 artists for its first art exhibition.

The exhibit, entitled Shift, will debut Friday, March 2 and run through May 4, 2018, a release said.

"Shift calls attention to the normalcy of our daily routines by juxtaposing it against the dramatic changes, or shifts, that punctuate our lives. The exhibition is a reflection of change, which often accompanies growth, development, trauma, and grief. Each submission captured these catalyzing events in a unique way, providing the audience with a mirror to understand the ways in which we adapt to see ourselves and our new normal," Melissa Fannin said.

Artists were invited to submit artwork that represented a shift, dramatic change, and/or a transformation in their lives. Some examples include experiences of depression, major surgeries, physical accidents, stress relief, and friendship.
