Mayor’s Choice exhibit recognizes artists in recovery in Grand Forks


For Susan Hurd-Poster, art is “a way to get out of the house,” and it’s fun.

Her photography, along with artwork by several other members of Mountainbrooke Recovery Center, was showcased Wednesday in the Grand Forks Public Library as part of the Mayor’s Choice Artist Program.

“I think it’s a great honor. It shows some concern for those that are struggling,” said Clare Mathistad, another Mountainbrooke artist who had poetry in the exhibit.
