Spark of Brilliance is a community-based initiative that promotes healing and recovery for people coping with mental health challenges. Creative art programs and services are designed to enhance quality of life for participants, inspire independent thinking and grow self-esteem. Spark programs empower individuals and families with the skills they need help make meaningful contributions to their community.

Spark of Brilliance is bringing the work of four talented artists to Guelph community space, 10 Carden in an exhibition entitled “Power To The Arts”. This exhibition will demonstrate a broad range of artistic expressions in oil, ink, collage, mosaic, and mixed media. Artists Barb Cohen, Lisa Cosier, Marcey Gray and Jay Lefler hope to raise awareness of how their personal experiences with mental health issues have been overcome. They also want the community to understand how recovery can happen through connecting with the creative spirit.

This special event takes place on Monday, May 31 from 7 to 9 p.m. Local singer-songwriter D Eve Archer will entertain and refreshments will be served.

jgposter1Bring your voices, bring your instruments!

Join us on April 26 at 8.00 p.m. at 10 Carden to celebrate the publication of an inspirational and practical music songbook/anthology containing 50 of the most well-loved songs by James Gordon. The book contains everything you need to be your own troubadour… easy chord charts, sheet music and lyrics. You’ll also get lots of stories and illustrations.

According to James, “the idea for the book launch is that you bring along your voices, your guitars, your whatevers… we pass the book around – we all get in a circle and sing the songs together… And maybe if you enjoy the experience you take one of the cute newborn books home with you!”

Admission is $10 or pay $25 and go home with your own autographed copy of the songbook! (regular price $30)

You can reserve a seat by e-mailing James at james@jamesgordon.ca.

The songbook is available at The Bookshelf, Guelph Music, Gordon Taylor Music, Ground Floor Music, Folkway Music in Guelph and Wordsworth Books in Waterloo. You can also buy it online from the publisher, Berlen Music.
