Artwork and text which has been created by people recovering from drug and alcohol abuse will go on display in the Lally Gallery at Erewash Museum on Saturday 10 March.
The ‘Recovery’ exhibition, which runs until 3 April, will include handmade prints, collage, mixed media, paintings, text art and films. Professional artists Diana Shepherd and Cathy Terzza have worked alongside the Derbyshire Recovery Partnership and exhibitors since October last year to create the artwork.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“This will be a fascinating exhibition, the result of an inspiring project. It is a chance to see a wide range of artwork created by people who face day to day challenges as they recover from addiction.”
The people involved have worked at Derbyshire Recovery Partnership drug and alcohol recovery services based at Erewash House in Ilkeston in partnership with Wash Arts CIC Horti-Culture Project.
