For many people with a brain injury, or epilepsy art becomes part of their recovery. Some use art to express their feelings, and record their experiences. For others, art becomes a vehicle of healing, and hope during their journey. On this special night, we are celebrating life, and the challenges which are overcome despite disability.

Ron Roskos, Executive Director of BIAU shares the positive impact experienced by one brain injury victim. “We met a woman who owned her own art studio. After sustaining a brain injury she hadn’t been able to create anything, no paintings, drawings or pottery. We invited her to participate in the show. After a little reluctance she donated some pottery, and a floral painting. While at the show an art professor overheard her expressing sadness over her lost talent.”

Roskos goes on the explain, “This instructor stepped in, and assured her of the beauty, and breadth of her work. He explained how very few artists can breach multiple mediums in such a breathtaking way. He then offered to donate canvases and paints for her to continue her work. He said, ‘You have the talent, you just need to find your confidence again.’” For Roskos, this story is one example that demonstrates the purpose and passion behind this show, providing a means of expression and healing physically and emotionally after experiencing a physical trauma.

The Brain Injury Alliance of Utah, BIAU, is a non-profit community organization in Murray, UT, that serves Utah residents who have been affected by a brain injury. They provide resources, education and a shared community connection through events and each other. BIAU also works in conjunction with industry professionals such as case managers, physicians and therapists with their online forum and with their enormous library of information.
