"The Art of Recovery" Opening Reception: May 4, 2012

"Recovering" by Michael Diehm, Mixed Media on Canvas

The opening reception for "The Art of Recovery" was a huge success this first Friday of May.  This show provides a forum for artists living with mental illness to gain confidence in their abilities, address misconceptions surrounding mental illness, and experience community support. Using Art Therapy to improve and enhance their physical, mental, and emotional well-being, we send a special thanks to the artists for sharing their process of recovery with us. And of course, thank you to the Rappahannock Area Community Services Board (RACSB) and all of you who came out to show your support for the opening. "The Art of Recovery" will continue through the 27th of May.

Lisa Brintley, Howard Brown, Jeremy Cabrera, Jimmy Clark, Helen Conley, Gloria Cooke, Hiter Davis IV, Michael Diehm, Scott Fowler, James Gibson, Jr., Scott Haugh, Beth Jarvis, Mark Jones, Margi Mallory, Anthony McKenny, James Miller, Heidi Minor, Buddy Morgan, Tom Page, Sandy Alexandra Pappas, Craig Patak, Annette Pride, David Raines, Tracy Ringquist, RR, Oren Rose, Darah Saunders, Kim Stanley, Page Stoner, Gayle M.
