CAiR Art Show – Friday, August 4th

We would love to see you at our “First Friday Art Show” on Aug. 4th! This event celebrates the beautiful creative work of our artists. 

These events are our way to paint recovery in a whole new light. Having the ability to show friends, family members, and leaders in our community our creations helps rebuild personal relationships, gives our participants a feeling of personal pride in their recovery, as well as show the greater community the value in supporting recovery efforts. This all contributes to changing the stigma around recovery. We recover out loud. 

Up to 15 artists in recovery will be showing their art. Coffee and snacks are provided.
