Palace Theatre paint event recognizes Recovery Month
The 6 to 8 p.m. event, held at the Palace Theatre in Greensburg, increases awareness and highlights recovery from substance use disorders, according to a news release.
Demetre Josebeck, 26, was an artist, activist, and advocate who lost his battle to addiction on July 4, the release notes.
Josebeck was curator for the Art For Recovery and Transformation project. He spoke at numerous events, donating his time and talents to help others achieve and maintain sobriety, the release states.
“The Palace Theatre is the perfect place to continue Demetre’s mission. The jazz musician is a self-portrait Demetre painted at the Art in The Alley opening event,” says Toni Antonucci, Josebeck’s mother.
Antonucci serves as development director for Mental Health America of Westmoreland County.
“Painting at the Palace” will include interactive painting experiences by artists Sarah Hunter and Suzanne Panchura, live music by Cameron Tayler, oil portrait demonstration by Carolyn W. Taylor, live abstract painting by Pamela Cooper, live painting by Josebeck’s long-time friend Ryan Morrison, a tour of the Art in the Alley, light bites by Sun Dawg Café, and displays of art available for sale from artists in recovery/supporters of recovery.
In recognition of Recovery Month, the evening will be non-alcoholic, the release states.
Tickets are $35.
