Art Against Stigma 2013


As a member of The Kettle Friendship Society, I invite you to bring a friend and come see a wonderful display of original art for sale created by people in recovery. This event is to build awareness around mental illness in the community and share what we do. Art helped me to heal and keeps me well. There will be 300 works including pottery, paintings, drawings, photography, and art cards.
