Heidi Sliter, an art therapist with Crossroads, an agency in the ADAMHS network that focuses on children, adolescents and families, says the “Expressions of Recovery” show offers a unique perspective on the nature of brain disorders. “Art therapy can be an important part of someone’s recovery on a number of different levels,” she says in the release. “Many use their art to express their feelings about their illness, or make their illness more tangible. For others, the creative process itself provides some very therapeutic relief from the symptoms of the illness. So some of the pieces in this exhibit are fun or silly, some are touching, some even a bit disquieting. But collectively, this is a body of work that will definitely open people’s eyes.”
