The Tri-County Board of Recovery and Mental Health Services presents its Annual Art of Recovery exhibition of paintings, drawings, photography, poetry and music from our local mental health and recovery system in conjunction with the Tri-County Board's Annual Meeting in October.
Artists who have been impacted personally, as a family member or friend, or anyone whose art reflects recovery from mental illness or addiction are invited to submit. Artists display works ranging from painting and drawing to sculpture, mixed media, crafts, photography and poetry. Artists typically reside in Darke, Miami and Shelby Counties, although submissions from other counties are sometimes received. Many use their art to express their personal journeys with recovery from mental illness and addiction, while others have been touched as family members, friends, advocates and service providers.
HOW TO ENTER
1. Create art! Just about any medium is fine - if you're not sure, email or call at the number below.
2. Fill out a form. I need to know a few things about you so that we can properly credit the art in the exhibit. If you prefer to remain anonymous, we can accommodate that, but I still need to know who you are and how to reach you.
3. Drop it off. I need the art in hand by the end of September (but not earlier than the beginning of September) for the October exhibit. For installation pieces, it's helpful if you can take it directly to the gallery and help set it up, so check with me first. PLEASE BE SURE YOUR NAME AND TITLE OF WORK IS ATTACHED TO YOUR ARTWORK.
4. Come to the Artists' Reception! You'll receive information about the Artists' Reception once the gallery is set up. It's generally the third Wednesday in October from 5:30-7PM and is open to the public.
For questions, email Brad Reed, Director of Community Resource Development, or call (937) 335-7727 ext. 209.
Taking into consideration the venue at which the art will be showcased and the limited amount of space, all art will be reviewed, and inclusion in the exhibit is not guaranteed.
