“when darkness comes” by Angela Ridgway, Metal Art for Mental Health Month

alone – Angela Ridgway

 

•Depression comes like a moonless night. You don’t notice that it’s arriving at first, but as the light begins to fade, you notice the darkness. Not all at once, but you can feel it coming, from dusk to full darkness. And then it consumes you.

•In when darkness comes, metal artist Angela Ridgeway explores her own experiences with depression. “When my darkness comes, I can see it approaching. Sometimes I can take actions to move away from it, but other times, I can’t circumvent it. For many people, depression can be there while you go through the routine of day to day life. Or it can be completely debilitating. For me, either way, it consumes my thoughts and actions.”

•Angela hopes that by opening up about her own depression, others will learn more about the illness and become aware of it – maybe in themselves, maybe in others. “Through education and conversation, we can lift the stigma of mental illness, making it easier for people suffering to get help.” Angela has dealt with depression most of her adult life, but didn’t really understand it until she was diagnosed in her early 30’s. Many people have helped her through her dark spells, including friends, family, doctors, and therapists. Modern medicine has helped to keep these episodes at bay most of the time. Still, she is always on the lookout for the signs in her own life, and others, and tries to take action when she sees them.

•In support of mental health services and Mental Health Month in May, Angela will donate 15% of her show sales in May to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Oregon. (www.NAMIOR.org)

•This is a two month exhibit which opens Wednesday, May 3rd and ends Saturday, July 1st, 2017. The public is invited to a reception with complimentary refreshments and wine on Saturday, May 13th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The gallery will host an artist talk by Angela Ridgway on Saturday, June 10th, 2017 at 5:00pm. Seating for the talk is limited, so please reserve your seat by emailing the gallery at info@artonbroadway.net
