The exhibition is on display trough February 27. The Gallery at Towngate is open 11am-1pm Monday through Friday and during all events.

More about Creative Arts Therapy at West Liberty University:

Art therapists are master-level clinicians who work with people of all ages with various abilities and disabilities. Guided by ethical standards and scope of practice, their education and supervised training prepares them for culturally proficient work with diverse populations in a variety of settings.

West Liberty University is the only public university in the State of West Virginia offering an undergraduate degree and will offer a graduate degree in Art Therapy and Counseling in the Fall of 2021 (pending approval).
