An Artist Journey with Color Heals Trauma
Feel uplifted and energized by the resiliency of the human heart expressed in Dorothy Fagan’s healing art journey. Twenty years of coastal landscape paintings, breadcrumbs from her easel trace her colorful path.
Dorothy Fagan stopped painting, PTSD made it impossible. For years she tried to be someone else, until she tasted the colors of earth, sky, water. She planted her easel in the sand between marsh and sky, and mixed colors like a puppy synchronizing her heartbeat with its mother. Mind, body, spirit, and heart responded, as she embodied the healing landscape in her paintings. Vitality and a peaceful heart shine as one walks through the artist’s visionary path. Experience it for yourself.
Live music will be provided by Louis Vangieri.
