Out & About: ‘Art for Recovery’ show shares stories of hope, transformation

April 7, 2018

The second annual Art for Recovery and Transformation show was held March 28 at Strive Health of Greensburg.

Co-sponsored by Strive Health, Westmoreland County Drug Overdose Task Force and Barbara Ferrier, the exhibition featured pieces in various media created by area artists in recovery from substance use. Artists were on hand to share their stories of hope and recovery and to talk about their artistic processes.

“Art is a communicative platform that allows anybody and everybody to express themselves inspired by one’s true self — without harmful external substances,” says curator Demetre Josebeck.
