About 300 people turned out for the opening reception of Northern Lakes CMH’s 6th annual Art of Recovery: The Human Journey show. With almost 100 pieces of art, in a wide variety of styles, genres, colors, representing realism, abstract, impressionist, three-dimension, and from a wide variety of people and levels of professionalism, from the novice to the professional artist… the show really illustrates the healing power and resilience of people. Our intention with this show is to raise community awareness and bring people together, because we all recover from something at some point in our lives – and we believe this beautiful show accomplishes that!
Many thanks to professional artists Tom McClellan, James Ash, and Martha Eldredge who volunteered to help us hang the show, and to Traverse City singer/songwriter Blake Elliott who performed from 5:30 to 6:30, and Hammer’d, with hammered dulcimers by Northern Lakes CMH staff Jacqui Rutherford and Diane Lowes and others, who performed in the afternoon, from 4:00 to 5:30. Many, many thanks, also, to gallery owner, Mike Curths, for his generous donation of space.
The show continues through November 28, so if you missed the opening, you can still see the beautiful artwork on display and for sale through the rest of the month. In the Outre Lounge in the Inside Out Gallery, 229 Garland, in the Warehouse District of Traverse City.
