Kane County Drug Rehabilitation Court Hosts Sept. 12 Art, Writing Show

The Kane County Drug Rehabilitation Court will host its Annual Art and Writing Show from 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12, in the Jury Assembly Room, JC-100, located on the first floor of the Kane County Judicial Center in St. Charles.

The artwork and writings are submitted by current Drug Court participants. The public is invited to this event.

A wide variety of art forms will be represented at the show including some live music as well as traditional paintings and collages.

Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served by Drug Court participants who have volunteered to assist with the event. Many of the artists will be present at the show along with Presiding Drug Court Judge Marmarie Kostelny and the entire Drug Court team.

The art show is presented as a positive sober event for drug court participants and is intended to encourage healthy and creative activities. The art often represents the participants’ hard work in recovery, their thoughts on addiction and their efforts at reunification with others.

By working with Kane County Drug Court, participants commit to their recovery under close judicial supervision for 24 months of intensive treatment and probation.
