The below short video gives an overview of a fun talk, given by Dr. Terri Nicole Sawyer recently at Bedford Fine Art Gallery. Using the skills of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Dr. Sawyer guided some local art-lovers through the emotional mind, the reasonable mind, and the wise mind as you view art. The talk was very interesting and she guided everyone through:
- Learning where emotions come from
- How they are processed in the brain
- Discovering how emotions surface while viewing art
- Embracing the feelings, we were all sensing
In summary, it was great to see our "It’s all about you" philosophy in action, as everyone falls-in-love with a painting based on their own sense of beauty and special connection to the painting that "speaks to you."
