Salt&Pepper Studios:WalkingGallery

$30,466 of $39,000 goal

Raised by 286 people in 36 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 host artists in residence to paint additional jackets and offer a place of respite for recovering 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 also have a room named in honor of Aaron Richardson, friend of the Walking Gallery.  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 Friends and Members of the Walking Gallery,

For last few months we have been working on an accessible bathroom on the first floor. The room has been built, but the plumbing still needs to be placed. We have worked on a performance stage in the basement. I am attaching a picture of the stage in progress to this post.

The Dove Center moved out of their office space in September, and the room they once inhabited will become an accessible bedroom on the first floor. This one will be named in honor of my late husband Fred Holliday. This December 26th would have been our 25th wedding anniversary, so that is a fitting tribute to his memory.

We have hosted people in the last few months in the upstairs 2nd floor rooms. They needed a place to stay and we were able to provide it. We did get a full size fridge to accommodate the needs of more frequent guests.

If any of you want to help defray the costs of the accessible bathroom, basement stage, and monthly costs associated with this permanent home for The Walking Gallery please feel free to donate.

If any of you would like to visit, please let me know and I will pencil those dates into our calendar. Thank you.

Your Dear Friend, 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

Dear Teresa, My first business cards I printed on my home computer. Then I found out how affordable it was to print with Vistaprint and I ordered mine from there ever since...
