The goal for this exhibition is to raise awareness for National Recovery Month and raise money for local entities doing the work of melding art and recovery together Raleigh County style.
Purple was chosen for this important awareness month to give a visual cue to celebrate people who have made the brave choice to be in recovery, as well as expand on the education and awareness of addiction and recovery.

clutter and disorganization within interior spaces. These large scale, congested
compositions reflect and explore ideas of comfortability within inner turmoil, self-
conflict, and mental and emotional distortion.
