Ocean Alliance is committed to supporting arts, culture, and community in Gloucester, and one way we show our support is by hosting art exhibitions at the Paint Factory. Two weeks ago, we hosted the I Am More exhibit, which was the first public unveiling of the I Am More portraits.
The I Am More project consists of portraits by artist Amy Kerr of people facing personal challenges and essay by those people about how they are more than their depression, addiction, grief, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorder, bipolar disorder, dysphoria or obsessive compulsive disorder. They are parents, children, and friends with loves, gifts and dreams. Work by Cape Ann artists and Gloucester High students whose portraits Amy painted were also in the show.
