The WCA/NH and Library Arts Center are partnering with Turning Points Network of Sullivan County, a private, non-profit agency offering free and confidential crisis and support services to survivors, their friends, loved ones, service providers and concerned community members impacted by domestic violence, sexual violence and stalking.

Artists from the WCA-NH are exhibiting works in all mediums that speak to the trauma of, and recovery from, domestic and sexual violence. The exploitation of power and control are the hallmark of abuse. Works depict the physical, emotional and spiritual wounds of violation as well as the courage and empowerment of surviving it.
