The Art of Recovery event benefits Fresh A.I.R. Gallery (Artists in Recovery), a unique venue that displays the work of artists who have been affected by mental illness and/or substance use disorders. Through art, we work to educate the community and work to break down the stigma of mental illness and/or substance use disorders by bringing focus to the artistic vision.
Opened in 2004, Fresh A.I.R. Gallery is a project of Southeast Healthcare Services. Our exhibits demonstrate the courage and struggles of artists as they combat stigma and address social issues. We have featured the work of artists from across the country, all in different stages of recovery. Fresh A.I.R. Gallery does not take a commission on artwork sold, and all proceeds from art sales go directly to the artists to support their careers in the arts.
By supporting the Art of Recovery, you will play an essential role in helping Fresh A.I.R. Gallery sustain its programming and meet its mission.
