What is Recovery Panes?
All individual paintings are joined to form a larger work, framed and presented to resemble large windows with each painting representing a single windowpane. The art is interactive- the individual panels are mounted on magnets, allowing the viewers to rearrange the paintings, symbolizing our need to change our perspective and move towards de-stigmatizing addiction.
Both the Recovery Panes and the accompanying catalogue will be shown at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts through March of 2012.
A reception will be held on Thursday, February 2nd, 5pm-9pm, to celebrate both Recovery Panes and 'Come to Your Senses', a showcase of encaustic paintings by local artists

Today I applied to have it installed in the Portland Building and am looking to possible find a more permanent place for it to be viewed and interacted with.. Possibly a hospital or something of the sort. Keep your eyes out and let me know if you know of a great home for the Recovery Panes Healing Project to help even more people!!

At the City Club Offices
901 SW Washington
Please join us for a presentation of the Recovery Panes community arts project. Recovery Panes was conceived and facilitated by Kelly Williams, a Portland based artist with a professional background in social services. In this project, participants worked to express the impacts of addiction through encaustic painting (beeswax based medium) and writing. The result is a dynamic assemblage of paintings and stories, articulating the complexity of addiction. Please join us for a presentation and discussion with Kelly Williams and some of the participants. This show will be on display in the City Club offices until May 16th

Kelly gave testimony this morning at the State of the Arts address, explaining how organizations like RACC make these kinds of creative healing projects possible, and how important these projects truly are. Once again, we'd all like to thank RACC and City Council for all the incredible support we've been given throughout this process! Be sure to stop by City Hall and see the installation sometime this month--new catalogs have been printed and they're gorgeous!
