Event Details

With artist Rebecca Gonzalez-Bartoli

November 15, 6-7PM

1221 Art Space

During this talk, artist Rebecca Gonzalez will share her desire to work with visual collage, an artform she found highly expressive and playful.

Rebecca is an intuitive and expressive artist in recovery from schizoaffective disorder. She weaves stories through her art, employing vibrant, eclectic colors and whimsical themes. Her creations radiate joy, often exploring the world through the perspectives of animals, people, and words. Art serves as a powerful healing instrument in her life, and her aspiration is to extend that message of healing to a wider audience. Since relocating to Columbus in 2016, she has actively shared her artwork by participating in numerous shows and exhibits, underscoring the vital role of community in the storytelling of art.

“Making art has always been a part of my identity, but post-diagnosis, it became more of a lifeline, a therapeutic tool in my healing process. This is what I do to take care of myself.” -Rebecca Gonzalez- Bartoli
