This time, it’s to tautoko the artists of Art-East as they show their original paintings from The Family Recovery Garden | Te Oranga Rā, a project we worked on as Places of Tranquility 2014, which in 2017 became The Family Recovery Garden in partnership with Odyssey House.
These paintings were originally made by members at the invitation of the The Family Recovery Garden | Te Oranga Rā as a way to help give the garden colour and creativity. Alongside each artwork is a statement by the artist explaining what this creative process meant to them, as part of their own recovery journey.
Ngā mihi to all involved, including Christchurch Libraries, Art-East Christchurch, Odyssey House, Manatu Taonga | Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Drug-ARM Christchurch.
The exhibition is at Tūranga 18 November 2022 – 23 January 2023.
