Artists In Recovery

Art And Recovery Go Well Together

Café The Lodge’s Artists in Recovery Exhibit opened in late January 2018, and features artwork from residents, staff and community members.

The director of Café the Lodge, thinks art is important because it is a nonverbal expression of concepts that can be hard to vocalize. He hopes to reach more members of the Bethlehem community by bringing in local artists.

The Lodge has already sold 46+ paintings, for each painting sold, the artist gets 85 percent of profits and the rest goes to the Lodge.

Be sure to take a look at the new Artists In Recovery exhibit on display in the main dining area.
