The Art of Living in Recovery is presenting An Evening of Art and Music on Nov. 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Grotto Bistro in Courtenay.

The art show will provide a showcase of musical, visual and mixed media.

The entire event is being organized by those in recovery to show everyone, including others in recovery and those who may be considering recovery, that creativity does not lessen for the artist who chooses to live substance free.

Recovery is possible and people in recovery are living successfully all around us.

An Evening of Art and Music is an activity of hope and positivity supporting a substance-free, safe and healthy community.

Tickets are $3 to $5 and include refreshments, appetizer and a chance to win door prizes.

For more information, contact Sam at Charlette.Sommers@viha.ca or Laura at Laura.Dunkley@viha.ca.

This event is sponsored by the Community Drug Strategy Committee, an initiative of the City of Courtenay.  Special thanks to Grotto owners Mark and Danielle Duncan for their support of the event and all those who donated door prizes.

The Grotto is at 477 Fifth St.
