The opening night reception of the Art of Recovery attracted more than 100 people on May 5. Attendees strolled through the PONSHOP Studio and Gallery to view the artwork created by adults with mental illness. And many folks braved the rain for a chance to see musical performances, readings and dance numbers in the gallery’s courtyard. The downpours paused just long enough for the outdoor festivities. As the last act played music, fat raindrops began to fall from the sky once more.
We are always so grateful for the support we get for this annual event, which uses art to promote recovery.
