Transcendent Art Show  |  Petersham  |  2016 

Quabbin Regional High School senior MacKenzie Coffman brought together professional and student artists and writers to raise awareness of mental health issues through a juried art show. The Dance Studio of Orange featured two troupes at the opening reception. Noted author and abuse survivor, Robin Brooks, read from her book The Blooming of the Lotus: A Spiritual Journey from Trauma into Light. A chapbook of poetry was put together, and student poets also read their work. All featured artists donated half the proceeds from the sale of their work to Abby’s House in Worcester, a shelter for homeless women and children.
