This past Sunday The First Annual INvisible Beauty In Pain Art Gallery Opening was held at my Community Center & Headquarters 540WMain. “INvisible Beauty In Pain” a collaboration with The U.S Pain Foundation showcases beautiful works of art and photography from thirteen artists who donated their works to our space. It also features the chronic pain stories from The U.S Pain Foundation’s INvisible Project. All proceeds from the peices sold will be used to further the community and awareness work of 540WMain and The U.S Pain Foundation.
I can’t even to begin to describe the success of this KNOWvember Opening Gallery. This gallery was a labor of love and the support from the Rochester, NY as well as our followers and supporters across social media truly warms my heart. I will save the details about Sunday’s opening event for later in the week. For now, I want to shift your attention to the campaign’s first artist spotlight Jeremy Belair.
The INvisible Beauty In Pain campaign’s first artist spotlight is Jeremy Belair
Jeremy Belair is a local artist from Hilton, NY. He has been involved in art his entire life, working in ink drawings, acrylic paints, wood burning and carving as well as mixed media pieces. He enjoys creating not only for his own artistic tastes and peace of mind, but also is available for customized pieces.
Jeremy graciously donated an acrylic painting titled ““Knowledge by Fire”.
According to Jeremy this painting represents:
the self awareness, and awareness of life and our world that comes going through some type of adversity. This could be recovery from an addiction, a traumatic event, or living day to day with chronic pain. It serves as a reminder that everything we go through is a learning opportunity to know more about oneself
When not creating art, Jeremy spends time with his family and house full of dogs or he is outside in nature looking for his next inspiration.
For the rest of KNOWvember, we will feature the biographies and the meaning behind the works of art created by and donated to the INvisible Beauty in Pain Gallery by each of the thirteen artists that submitted work for this campaign.
All works are avaialvle to be seen in person at 540WMain and are a celebration of The U.S Pain Foundation’s KNOWvember campaign which you can learn more about by clicking here.
