Join us on Thursday October 13th from 7 – 8 PM for the lecture,
the Art of Healing, by Judy Perry, an artist talk and discussion on her ongoing journey of healing through art.

About the Artist:
“My formal training began more than 40 years ago studying Fine Art and Special Education at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. Upon moving to Old Saybrook, Connecticut in 1996 I began painting professionally, building my reputation as a working artist focusing on emotional paintings of faces.

“A near fatal head-on automobile collision with a drunk driver in 2009 left me with an uncertain future. Among my numerous injuries was a traumatic brain injury that included memory loss, impacting my painting abilities. Art therapy became part of my rehabilitation program and during this talk I will share how art has healed me in many ways.” – Judy Perry
