‘Enchanted Illusion’: Art Exhibit for Mental Wellness

“The Astrologer” by surrealist artist Anna Marie Harrington will be featured at this year’s “Enchanted Illusion” art exhibition raising awareness of mental health challenges.

A new art exhibition, “Enchanted Illusion,” is now on display at the Polk County Heritage Gallery. Featuring work from 11 local artists, the juried exhibit explores themes of fantasy, illusion and art as an escape from mental health challenges. The nonprofit group Sunny Porch will also honor the featured artists during an awards reception on Jan. 8 from noon to 2 p.m. RSVP to attend the reception here.

“Enchanted Illusion” is the second annual exhibit hosted by Sunny Porch, whose focus is on increasing mental health awareness through art in memory of late local artist Anna Marie Harrington, whose work will also be displayed at the exhibit.

The show will be open to the public Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until Feb. 3.
