Growing The Walking Gallery

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 Supporters,

Last night I got an email from a from a medical educator in Malaysia. She found the art of the Walking Gallery and was using it to teach her students. Our work has legs my friends.

Please consider a donation to help cover costs or paints and shipping. Every bit helps! Your money also helps heat the studio. This winter has been very harsh in the mountains so the heating bills have been very high.

Thanks for any help you can provide. Your friend, Regina

Dear Friends and Members of the Walking Gallery,

I am currently working on jackets for folks who plan to attend HIMSS19. I hope a great many of you are able to go and spread the word about the power of stories to affect health policy.

If any of you want to send donations to help pay for paint and shipping that would be more than welcome.

Sadly, I will most likely not be at HIMSS for the first time in many years. The vender companies that were interested in having me paint onsite decided against it this year. So I will be painting from home and thinking of all of you fondly.

Your friend, Regina
