In­side Out, an an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion and fundraiser that calls at­ten­tion to is­sues of men­tal ill­ness

The first full week of Oc­to­ber is Na­tional Men­tal Ill­ness Aware­ness week. In­side Out, an an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion and fundraiser, uses art to call at­ten­tion to is­sues sur­round­ing men­tal ill­ness; it takes place from Thurs­day, Oct. 8, through Satur­day, Oct. 10, at two Rai­l­yard venues: James Kelly Con­tem­po­rary Art (1611 Paseo de Peralta) and Tai Mod­ern (1601 Paseo de Peralta).

Since it was es­tab­lished in 2013 as a pro­gram of the Com­pas­sion­ate Touch Net­work — a Santa Fe-based ad­vo­cate and sup­port or­ga­ni­za­tion for those deal­ing with men­tal ill­ness — In­side Out has pro­moted works by res­i­dents at Casa Mi­la­gro, which has a ther­a­peu­tic pro­gram that en­gages par­tic­i­pants with men­tal ill­ness in gar­den­ing, art mak­ing, cook­ing, and other ac­tiv­i­ties; Casa Cer­ril­los, a sup­port­ive liv­ing pro­gram that fos­ters self-re­liance for those with men­tal and phys­i­cal ill­ness; the Club­house at Life Link Santa Fe, a com­mu­nity men­tal health cen­ter and out­pa­tient treat­ment pro­gram; and ArtStreet in Al­bu­querque, a com­mu­nity-based art ther­apy pro­gram. Artists re­ceive the pro­ceeds from the sale of their work.

The ex­hi­bi­tion opens with a tick­eted preview event at 5 p.m. on Thurs­day, Oct. 8, catered by Joseph’s of Santa Fe. Tick­ets for the preview are $50 and can be pur­chased at www.eventbrite.com or at the door. VIP tick­ets for $100 are avail­able and in­clude early en­try to the preview (at 4:30 p.m.) and pri­or­ity seat­ing at Minds In­ter­rupted: Sto­ries of Lives

Af­fected by Men­tal Ill­ness, a per­for­mance at the James A. Lit­tle Theater on Sun­day, Oct. 11, at 7 p.m. There is no charge to see the work on Fri­day and Satur­day, on view dur­ing gallery hours. A por­tion of sales of works by no­table “out­sider” artists James Ed­ward Deeds and Martin Ramirez ben­e­fit the Com­pas­sion­ate Touch Net­work, as well as 100 per­cent of pro­ceeds from the sale of a do­nated print by pho­to­re­al­ist pain­ter Chuck Close. The show wraps up with an artist re­cep­tion on Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. For in­for­ma­tion and a list of all events, visit www.in­side-out.wix.com/ santafe. — Michael Abatemarco
