Art for Healing

Works from a group of SVPAP members have been selected for a 3 month exhibit at Hershey Medical Center.  The project, sponsored by Center Stage, places artwork in various locations of the hospital where the images may calm and comfort ailing patients.  Jill Peckelun, Paul Gallo, Cecelia Lyden, Patricia Walach Keough, Julie Riker, Debra Kreiger, Sue Van Tonningen, Johanna Monighan Schaefer, Jane Albin, Susan Benigni Landis, and Gail Fox have all contributed paintings to this effort.
