MOUNT VERNON — Beautiful art pieces showcasing recovery were part of Thursday’s Art of Recovery ceremony at Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Schnormeier Gallery, but it was a tribute to the late Glenn Hopkins that was front a center.

Angela Finney’s colored-pencil portrait of Hopkins, founder of The Main Place, stood tall in the gallery and reminded guests of Hopkins dedication to recovery and the consumers of The Main Place.

Finney told the News that a portrait that size, if she worked about five hours a day, would typically take her 20 days to complete.
