Poster - e-Scapes Photography show at the Carnegie Arts & Visitor Centre, Kingsville, ONThe fine art photography of the Visual Healer - e-Scapes Photography - will be on display throughout the month of May at the Carnegie Arts & Visitor Centre in Kingsville. e-Scapes Photography encourages you to bring all the health and well-being nature offers back into your home, office and life as a form of visual healing.  By conveying healing, comforting and revitalizing scenes, we (Vicki McKay and Brett Groves) strive to combat Nature Deficit Disorder, all the health dilemmas that we suffer as a result of our disconnect with nature.  Research shows that nature, including images of it, promotes relaxation, stress relief and even reduced healing times as well as creativity and increased productivity. By facilitating reconnections, we hope to foster understanding of nature’s values and contribute to natural area conservation.  Admission is free, so come to the Carnegie Arts & Visitor Centre during the month of May and let nature heal you!  And be sure to visit us on-line at http://www.e-scapesphotography.ca to see all of our fine art images.
