MHA/St. Luke’s Hold Overdose Awareness Events
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church recently hosted the work of 10 artists from the Mental Health Association in Chautauqua County Art in Recovery classes in both Jamestown and Dunkirk.
The Art in Recovery Exhibit was held in St. Luke’s Undercroft in downtown Jamestown to raise awareness for International Overdose Awareness Day.
The works on display were by participants under the leadership of MHA staffers Sean Jones in Jamestown and Roseann Crocker in Dunkirk. Artists who shared how they celebrate their own creativity and recovery included Diana Bloom, Jessica Boutelle, Carriee Clark, Randal Hallett, Becky Hemmis and Bev Michaels, as well as volunteer Diane Valvo and interns Melita Lyon, Megann Panek and David Wolcott.
