Whisper Wind Gallery was built with two goals in mind: the first is to offer support to veterans who find art a way to express themselves, and the second is to promote our artists so they can focus more on the creation of art.
Whisper Wind Gallery is an online gallery where we showcase artists, both established and emerging. Our artists are Canadian veterans who find peace and healing in their chosen art form.
It is our intention to represent a wide variety in our collection and to ensure that each piece stands out on its own as unique and handmade. As we continue to grow, we will feature a variety of art styles in a large selection of mediums.
We will ensure that our clients are confident with the purchase of their artwork before it even arrives at their door. We look forward to working with both the seasoned art collector and the first time buyer.
Many soldiers and veterans suffer from operational stress injuries (OSI), most commonly post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Their individual journeys may have brought them through a lot of counselling and many efforts to find avenues to express themselves, to help find their inner peace. Sadly, there are many Veterans who are not ready to begin that journey. Art is a way for our veterans to reflect and express their journey of healing. It can be a genuine struggle for people with PTSD to leave the house, and then to deal with social interactions, the structure of a typical day, their own and others' expectations, and busy locations. Knowing this reality, we were drawn to the idea of an online gallery to help others through their healing journey – on their own terms, without unnecessary stress, and with our support. This venture will provide a studio space where artists can focus on creating works of art and healing.
Our veterans are not alone in their battle to overcome PTSD and there are many who use different art mediums to express themselves. Art is a positive outlet for a vast array of their emotions. When Canada has lost too many soldiers and families to a crippling disorder, it is important to celebrate those who have found a positive way to manage it. This is why we want to do this. This is what we can do to help support our veterans.
We invite you to visit our online gallery often to browse our ever growing collection and reach out to us to talk about any piece that speaks to you.
