ART | 'ChasingNirvanaClean' 

Though reform efforts are perpetually underway, the US is behind other countries in its reduction of stigma about addiction and pursuit of more viable recovery methods. A new exhibit up at Flower City Arts Center, "ChasingNirvanaClean: Photographs by Simone Ochrym," is a photojournalism and storytelling project that focuses on individuals in recovery from addiction. Ochrym has a specific interest in how and why people enter and remain in long term addiction recovery, and highlights those who have achieved recovery as societal role models. Visitors' donations will go to Studio 678 Youth Photography Program, ChasingNirvanaClean, and Find Your Path addictions resource center.

"ChasingNirvanaClean" continues through October 20 at Flower City Arts Center's Photography Gallery, 713 Monroe Avenue. Photography Gallery hours are Monday through Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; and Friday through Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. Admission to the center is free. 244-1730;
