The Gallery of Inspiration is a specialized gallery designed to showcase the artistic works of several very talented clients of the Community Counseling Center, a private, charitable, 501(c)(3), not-for-profit behavioral health organization. The Center is the Administrative Agent for the Missouri Department of Mental Health entrusted to provide a full array of comprehensive mental health services within the southeastern Missouri counties of Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Madison, Perry, and Ste. Genevieve. Community Counseling Center has served the region since 1974.

The artwork featured in our gallery is the product of each artist's individual explorations with art. Ultimately art is what allows many of these extremely talented people to tap into their creativity-- and for some, to overcome many of the day-to-day life issues they face such as dispelling stigmas associated with mental health.

With more than just one focus, the gallery is designed to assist those artists who are looking for ways to integrate back into their community while learning valuable work skills. Some of our featured artists, however, have been successful members of their communities for quite some time; and for them, the gallery functions as a great way to display their talent and earn a little extra income. For example, whenever one of our artists sells a piece of their art, 100% of that money goes back to the artist so that s/he can afford more art supplies.

The artistic community-at-large has been very welcoming in helping establish our gallery in the downtown Cape Girardeau area. The support and kindness they have shown has been invaluable.
