Episode 104: Today I talk to Dr. Sarah Ness of Arts For Life. She talks about her new business, a certification program for health professionals called, Arts in Health Institute. We talk about how art can be used in healing as well as starting a new business.
Weekly Round-up 2/3-2/9
This has been a great couple of weeks!
I met Patricia Boyer in person, after finding her on Facebook. I stalked her artwork for a couple of days, then reached out. We did our interview at the Coffey and Thompson gallery.
It was the first time I had been there, even though i’ve passed by them for years.
When I got home from our interview, I got a text from another artist, Carol Ann Minor’s daughter. She thought her mother would get a kick out of being interviewed. So I met with her at Coffey and Thompson,
Carol is a very talented sculptor who has an inspiring story. She is deaf and basically a self-taught sculptor. [She wanted some figurines, so she made them herself out of soap!] Since then, she’s been coached and mentored by professionals who have helped her develop her natural talent. She uses other materials like bronze and clay. Stay tuned for the podcast…
It was great to see Sarah Ness again. She’s starting a new business, Arts in Health Institute, where she uses her skills to train other health professionals to incorporate the arts in their therapies.
Didn’t make it to any galleries this week, but I always enjoy the art at Legion Brewing, Plaza-Midwood at Tuesday night trivia. Art is curated there by Megan Lynch, who I haven’t actually met yet, but have read about & am super-impressed by.
