Art Exhibit Preview at Opera at the Market

The small preview of "Creative Sparks: An Art Exhibition from Artists with Epilepsy" at "Opera at the Market" in Melbourne on March 23rd 2009 went very well. We showed the art of a few Australian artists who are participating in our study as a sample of the large exhibition to come. There has been a lot of excitement about the art exhibition that is coming up in Melbourne on May 7th, 2009. We will be showing the art of about fifty people with epilepsy and some with migraines. The opening celebration and launch of the web site will commence on May 7th at 6:00 pm at St. Vincent's Hospital in Melbourne, Australia.

We are currently in the process of collecting art and information from participants in preparation of the exhibitions on-line and in-person. Please contact Jim Chambliss if you want to participate in the exhibitions or attend.
