The Healing Power of Art

Episode 51: Brooke talks with Nancy Marshburn on-site about her Healing Power of Art series which are part of the Harvest exhibition at the Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina. Marshburn uses her 20 year experience as a medical artist to combine art and science and anatomy and beauty.

Art has the power to heal.  It evokes an emotional response, and emotions have an effect on the body’s physiological responses.  Medical studies document the favorable therapeutic impact of visual arts:  Looking at art can change brain wave patterns, the autoimmune response and neurotransmitters that shift the body from stress to relaxation.  It also can modulate attitudes from fear to acceptance, from negativity to hope. Excerpt from Harvest exhibition press release   from Anne Neilson Fine Art Gallery.
