We are pleased to announce the annual Art of Recovery 2021 will be held in person this year! As we continue to navigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including its vast impact on Americans’ mental health, we find Fresh A.I.R.’s mission to be important as ever. The Art of Recovery will be held in person at the Columbus Museum of Art on Friday, November 5, 2021. Tickets will be available for sale and the premier art auction will be available for bidding online and mobile with prior registration online via your smart phone or computer or at the door the night of the event. The physical artwork in the auction will be installed at the Art of Recovery event for up close and personal viewing of the pieces. Attend the event in person with your smart phone and be ready to bid and be entertained.
In 2020 the Art of Recovery held an online art auction over a one week period. Over 60 artists contributed original artwork raising over $10,000 for the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery. We are excited to build upon last year’s capacity for 2021 and spread our mission even further.
In 2019, the event had more than 700 guests attend, featured over 100 pieces of original artwork from artists locally (and nationally), and included great food and beverages, a live painting demonstration, the presentation of our annual Recovery Award, and much more. Proceeds raised during the Art of Recovery help sustain the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery and SEEN Studios.
Since opening the gallery doors in September 2004, Fresh A.I.R. Gallery has shown over 90 exhibitions, displaying the artwork of over 200 artists, and sold more than 500 pieces of artwork. Fresh A.I.R. Gallery is a non-profit art gallery that does not accept any commission for art sold through the gallery. All proceeds from sold work go directly to the artists to help them establish their careers. Many exhibits demonstrate the courage and struggles of the artists as they combat stigma and address social issues.
