Recovering the Artist: the 8th annual show at the Swift Shines a light on Recovery.
Recovering the Artist VIII, features art that is fresh and vibrant, and made with a purpose other than sales in mind. As a way of expressing the struggles and triumphs of life, the way to move forward, to release the past or encounter new images for inspiration. The art in this show is art that “has to be made.”
What the artists in this show know, is how the arts have helped them to survive and thrive in difficult situations….Artists are more than survivors; Artists thrive in the face of life challenges, and find beauty in the poor and humble places of the world. They find hope, friends, and community in the arts.

Recovering the Artist VIII features artists from every walk of life and of all ages. There is something inspirational about artists that are dedicated to their work, not as a profession, nor as a hobby, but as a means of being more fully alive. Come be inspired and enlivened by a unique art show that asks the question: “When will you begin recovering your own artist?”
