Art Exhibition: The Weight On My Shoulders

June 1 @ 9:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm

Free to the public

Addressing the Silent Battles: Drinking Gourd Gallery Presents Exhibition Spotlighting Men’s
Mental Health in Civilian and Veteran Communities to highlight the pervasive, but often overlooked issue of men’s mental health.

Drinking Gourd Gallery proudly announces its upcoming exhibition, “The Weight on My Shoulders.”
This group exhibition seeks to shed light on the unique challenges faced by men coping with mental
health issues, particularly within the context of civilian and veteran life. The exhibition will run from June
1 through June 30, 2024, at the Southeast Regional Library in Garner, North Carolina, commemorating
Men’s Mental Health Awareness Month.

Men across all walks of life frequently grapple with mental health concerns, yet societal stigmas often
prevent open dialogue and hinder access to support. Against this backdrop, “The Weight on My
Shoulders” aims to spark conversation, promote understanding, and provide a platform for healing.
Featuring more than 30 objects, including paintings, drawings, photography and video, the exhibition
delves into various aspects of men’s mental health experiences. Through poignant narratives and
evocative imagery, visitors will gain insight into the complexities of these challenges and the pathways to
resilience and recovery.
