Our Brains Like Art…..

….they really do!

Of course, we at the Art Caravan knew this intuitively, but there’s new research from the University of Toronto to back this up. Ann Lukits writes in the Wall Street Journal : The study found that paintings activated areas of the brain involved in vision, pleasure, memory, recognition and emotions, in addition to systems that underlie the conscious processing of new information to give it meaning.

Now we have evidence to support our love of art.  Even more, it gives us license to exercise our art appreciating brains every day!

Enjoy your exercise (!) looking at the work of these wonderful Winnipeg artists…..
