FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Sam Feldman, Chairman and founder of the National Widowers’ Organization (nationalwidowers.org) will host a two hour tour of the art work done by Gretchen Feldman on May 21st from 2pm to 4pm, The Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Ctr., National Institute of Health, 9000 Rockville Pike, in Bethesda, MD.
At the age of 72, Gretchen was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. In the wake of this painful and challenging news, Gretchen's artistic process helped her to navigate through the intense challenge of cancer. Her artwork - initially an expression of external love and nature - morphed into an internal examination of her journey. Her work is being featured in an artistic display at The Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Ctr., National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD through July 6, 2018.
The exhibit was organized in conjunction with the The Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery at Smith Center for Healing and the Arts, in Washington, DC dedicated to exhibiting fine art that explores the innate connection between healing and creativity. A rotating exhibition schedule features contemporary, international and national artists addressing a diversity of significant themes, such as spirituality, social change, multiculturalism, health, environmentalism, and community.
The National Widowers’ Organization, a 501c3 non-profit organization was founded in 2009 as a result of the experience Sam Feldman went through after the death of his wife Gretchen. The Sam and Gretchen Feldman Foundation has generously supported our work to help widowers since then.
