I totally agree with Nouleng...The Peer Recovery Art Gallery welcomes the local communities with so much more then just the love and support. The center helped me rehabilitated myself back to find a whole new meaning of life to embrace our communities and cultural roots.
Thank you so much PRAG and the staff/members ^_^
The Peer Recovery Art Gallery is truly community based. The center is accepting of all individuals without regard to their artistic ability or community standing. The focus is sincerely one of authentic acceptance. As a member of the general public, I have been impressed by the array of services/events available. As a non-profit partner, I am astounded by the level of support the Gallery extends and the expertise of their volunteers.
My daughter has shown her art with Peer Recovery Art Project for over the past two years. This oganization promotes an opportunitiy for all artist to gain self-respect and provides a positive enviornment, which includes individuals of all ages. Thank you Anna McCuistion
I work for another local non-profit and collaborated with John Black to procure handmade and painted bowls created by local artists. John put the word out and the Peer Recovery Art Project clients stepped up! People of all ages, races, disability, and varying levels of recovery worked together to create some of the most beautiful pieces of art I have ever seen. I have visited the gallery on several occasions and am always touched by the support given to the clients of the program. Not only has this program helped individuals overcome personal obstacles, it has helped to revive the artistic presence in downtown Modesto. The community as a whole is better because of the Peer Recovery Art Project.
