Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit
Somerville Mosaic Art Exhibition 2018 – I recently went to Somerville Museum to see my friend Angel’s artwork at this exhibit. There, I came upon these beautiful mosaics created by two Artists from Cape Ann – Pamela Stratton and Mary Bowles. Both had a number of pieces there. If you haven’t been to this exhibit, I highly recommend it!
Visual Art and Health – Medical professionals have increasingly recognized the role that creative arts play in the healing process. Arts in medicine programs are emerging worldwide. The Mass General Hospital’s (MGH) Illuminations program is an example of this.
MGH Illuminations – Good Morning Gloucester blogger and Photographer Donna Ardizonni currently has her photography on display at MGH Boston. During the June 2018 – September 2018 MGH Illuminations Rotation, my Annisquam Delight and others photos will be on display. Years ago, I attended an Illuminations Rotating Art Exhibition Opening. A very moving experience; one of my patients was a featured artist. Art meant so much to her and brought a great deal of peace and she was the epitome of resiliency and HOPE.

‘What Does Love Mean to You?’ Come See What People in Gloucester Had to Say About Love. This interactive community art project has traveled throughout Gloucester all summer (May through September) in the form of a giant easel. People from throughout Cape Ann and even around the world stopped by to share positive messages, from all walks of life, ages 2 to 92.
