Turning the Tables on Unsustainable Attainment

Women and Their Work
Wednesday, October 20, 7pm
Admission: free

Join us for a conversation with three area Psychotherapists Gemma Marangoni Ainslie PH.D., ABPP, Mary Holman, MA, LPC, and Naomi Freireich, LCSW. By creating magically gorgeous paintings Virginia Yount inspires us to admire and collect work that paradoxically addresses issues of the disordered collecting that is hoarding. Topics of discussion include various conscious and unconscious motives for hoarding, including traumatic loss, memorializing, a compulsion to acquire, and as an effect of isolation. This community panel will discuss how Yount's artwork turns the tables on hoarding.
