Growing The Walking Gallery

$9,825 of $16,000 goal

Raised by 120 people in 16 months
The Walking Gallery

My name is Regina Holliday.   I paint to help improve health policy.  I started my work by painting large murals in Washington, DC inspired by the hospitalization of my late husband Fred Holliday. 

Next I started painting at medical conferences.  I would attend as a keynote speaker and then stay all day and paint the words of the other speakers and give the conference organizers my painting as a gift. 

Then I began painting the patient story on the backs of business suit jackets; this art movement is called The Walking Gallery.  There are now over 450 people in the Walking Gallery wearing over 500 jackets.  We have members in 16 countries and we continue to grow.  I have painted 430 jackets and the remaining jackets were painted by the 48 other artists in the gallery movement. 

I do not charge for the painting I do for The Walking Gallery. It is a mission and a labor of love, but paint costs money and so does shipping. Each jacket usually takes 8 hours to complete. If you would like to offer a donation for this worthy endeavor it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help! ~Regina Holliday

Dear Friends and Members of the Walking Gallery,

2019 rapidly approaches and with it the 10th anniversary of my medical advocacy through art. The Walking Gallery is now in its eighth year. We have 49 artists in the movement and we continue to grow.

We are also expanding at Salt and Pepper Studios: Home of the Walking Gallery. We are installing a wheel chair accessible bathroom and bedroom on the first floor. The bedroom will be named in honor of my late husband Fred Holliday. This December 26th would have been our 25th wedding anniversary, so it is a fitting tribute. We are also installing a performance stage in the basement. My son Isaac is very excited that he has learned to snap so he will be able to applaud appropriately at our poetry jams.

Please remember our movement in your holiday giving. We continue to paint jackets, share your stories, and to host patient artists. We hope some of you will be able to visit us this year.

Your Friend and Fellow Walker, Regina Holliday

Dear Supporters of The Walking Gallery,

Our annual gathering of the Walking Gallery is only a few weeks away. I am currently surrounded by 5 jackets on easels in different phases of completion. There are even more jackets hanging above me waiting their turn to be primed and painted. Please send me lots of positive energy and prayers as I work to depict these powerful stories. I look forward to seeing some of you soon at Cinderblocks5.

Your Friend, Regina
