Blind in the ears, deaf in the eyes 12–14 Oct


Jacquelyn Ritete has a passion for creativity and art making. She describes herself as a literal visual artist with a twist of her own perception of a concept. Exhibiting artworks of her stories through ten years of experience in the mental health sector, Jacquelyn will nurture and connect with the public of Papakura, Auckland in support of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Blind in the ears, deaf in the eyes was a quote used growing up. Simply a funny way of a person not listening or not seeing what is pointed out. This exhibition title may not make sense but it may bring humour, interest or curiosity about mental health issues
