Salt&Pepper Studios:WalkingGallery

$30,206 of $39,000 goal

Raised by 280 people in 35 months
We are creating a home for The Walking Gallery of Healthcare called "Salt and Pepper Studios: The home of The Walking Gallery."  We dedicated the building to the mission of The Walking Gallery on May 19, 2016.  We hope to open to the public in the fall of 2017. We want to host artists in residence to paint additional jackets and offer a place of respite for recovering cancer patients.  The building is still being completed and we do need additional funds to complete repairs. With the money raised thus far we repaired or replaced all the plumbing.  We put in a forced air heating system.  We painted the entire interior.  We built a large sandbox under the deck.  We put in a gravel parking lot behind the building.  We built a handicap ramp to the front entrance.     

We thank everyone who supports this movement and especially those who donate in memory of those members we have lost: Jess Jacobs and Jerry Matczak.  Both Jess and Jerry have rooms named in their honor in the building.  We thank those who spread the word on social media. We thank those who donate funds that defray the costs of this project. Most of all, we thank those brave walkers and artists who join us and help spread these stories all over the world.

Dear Supporters of The Walking Gallery,

We are only 5 weeks away from #Cinderblocks5. This event is on May 17-19 in Grantsville, MD. At this annual event we remember those we have lost as well as celebrate all who walk with us. This is our annual gathering of The Walking Gallery of Healthcare. All of our members are represented by luminaries with their jacket images. At this point we only have two sponsors, so if any of you can donate something toward our event it would be very appreciated.

I also hope many of you can join us! You can register here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cinderblocks5-tickets-42644848891

Your Friend and Fellow Walker,
Regina Holliday

Regina, Last night I attended a Focus Group held at and for my Medical Facility. I wore my Walking Gallery Jacket, which no one knew anything about, yet everybody was impressed by. My Community interaction is totally voluntary. I have no medically related ititials or title. At this time in space, I an ONLY a Patient. Perhaps there can be a card I may carry and pass out which legitimizes me. I do not yet have the voice others really hear. One on one takes forever. Gregg does plan to make some videos, they can and will help. Ideas anyone? Hugs Terrie
