In honor of National Suicide Prevention Month, Common Folk and Arts in Recovery for Youth present a group show by youth artists Rachael Bentz, Sophia Bilia, Jack Kelly, Ayah Lehtonen and Aidan Spaniol, from the AIRY Step-Up program. ‘Elemental’ showcases a diverse body of paintings on canvas and paper, connected by the process of using art as therapy. The young artists hope to convey how art is its own universe, malleable and changing as we change.
The show will be on view from August 29 – September 26, 2019 at Commonfolk, at 70 Main St, North Adams. Arts in Recovery for Youth (AIRY) is an arts-based youth suicide prevention program. For more info visit www.airyedu.com.
