2018-10-05 2018-10-30 America/New_York Resilience: Healing What Ails Us Through Strength, Tenacity & Fellowship

Join the Allegany Arts Council, the New Day Campaign and local partners and supporters for the opening of Resilience: Healing What Ails Us Through Strength, Tenacity & Fellowship. This art exhibition and series of public engagement events aims to reduce stigma associated with substance use and mental health disorders, by sharing stories of resilience, survival and support.

The Exhibition.

The exhibition features art by Allegany County artists Sandy Arnold and Darrin Isom, who have spent the last several months interviewing and sitting with Allegany County individuals who have - with resilience - faced, suffered from, and overcome a range of challenges and loss due to substance use and/or mental health disorders.

In addition, artists Schroeder Cherry, Nancye Hesaltine, Kathleen Hoagg, Michelle Labonte, and Elisif and Peter Bruun share works invoking four themes of resilience recurring throughout the stories from Arnold's and Isom's project:

Breathing: maintaining equilibrium in the throes of anxiety and chaos
Walking: celebrating our carrying on despite what weighs us down
Living: holding on to hope, joy, and peace in the face of loss and death
Caring: how we as a community come together despite what ails us

The Program.
