Board members and staff of the Wood River Valley division of the National Alliance for Mental Illness pose with artistic birdhouses at an exhibit titled “Journey to Wellness,” which the organization hosted on Monday at the Ketchum Innovation Center. The exhibit centered on the theme of “birds,” determined in recognition of the alliance’s teen support group, the Bluebirds. Artists were invited to represent mental illness and wellness through or alongside avian symbolism. All of the donated pieces were auctioned off to benefit the work of the alliance and bolster its efforts to aid those affected by mental illness. “The community came out in full force for this growing art benefit,” said Christina Cernansky, executive director of NAMI-WRV.
