My Sober Story: Parker

by | Dec 29, 2021

Parker S. Galore provides vivid reflection and insight about his past relationship with alcohol in his edition of “My Sober Story.” Parker is a long time community member, organizer, Gallery5 event producer and board member, art teacher, and visual/performing artist.
