How We're Helping

Art is a powerful healing tool to explore deep emotions - the sorrows, the struggles, and joys.  It has the ability to transform us by awakening parts of ourselves to recover and heal from earlier traumatic memories. Through artwork, poetry and music, people can develop their own personal vocabularies for a fuller identity. Through the sharing of the artists' work, we can open up a greater community dialogue for a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the mental health world, and in doing so, shed the stigma that haunts those who suffer from a disease that touches each and every one of us.

The RDG artist members' exhibition of their work will open the talk about how to support mental illness or personal experiences with mental health challenges.  Through the sharing of these special artwork, we can open up a greater community dialogue for a deeper and more meaningful understanding of the artist’s creative world and in doing so, help those who suffer in the mental health.

RDG Story

We represent and promote artists working in a wide array of media, including painting, sculpture, photography, video, music, poetry and installation that's related in supporting the mental health topic.

We are located in downtown Wausau in the historic River District.

A portion of proceeds of specific exhibitions will benefit different  non profit corporations that support the mental health community.  We strive to give those whose lives have been disrupted by mental illness an opportunity to experience meaningful work and relationships as they reintegrate into the broader community
