PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale’s Legacy Commons for Active Seniors, located at 930 E. Ave. Q-9, will host an opening reception for Unhidden Diary, the art of Chelsea Denise Williams, on Tuesday, Feb. 1, from 6 to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
Williams’ passion for creating art started in 2014 when she was 20 years old. She had recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and found it hard to express herself to others. To help express her feelings when words were not enough, Williams began creating art as an outlet. Her inspiration includes her mental health journey, family, therapy, black history in the U.S., current events, and her relationship with God. Through her artwork, Williams hopes to help encourage more conversations around black mental health.
The exhibit runs through Friday, March 4. For more information, call 661-267-5904.
