May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we invite you to attend an event that is part of the programming that complements "I Feel Like That," the current exhibition at Block Gallery in downtown Raleigh.

On Thursday, May 2 at 12:30 there will be an Artist Talk and Brown Bag where you'll have a chance to meet artist Telvin Wallace. He'll discuss the works and why he decided to share such a personal part of himself and those close to him. Jimmy Johns has sponsored lunch so there will be sandwiches and chips. You're encouraged to bring your own beverage. The event is free, but since we're providing lunch and space is limited please RSVP.

The exhibition focuses on issues associated with mental health. Through portraiture, Wallace uses his direct relationship with the subject matter to embrace the contentious impression of mental illness and the place it holds in society. The exhibition is presented by the Office of Raleigh Arts and the Black On Black Project. It will be on view until May 31.

We hope you can join us for this event as we discuss this sensitive and prevalent topic. Learn more about "I Feel Like That" here and follow the hashtag #IFeelLikeTelvin.
