Cancer Survivor To Discuss The Restorative Power Of Art

On Wednesday, Oct. 16 from 4 to 5:30 p.m., The Brunswick Inn will host Sally Loughridge - breast cancer survivor, visual artist, and retired clinical psychologist - for a discussion of how imagination and creative power can help one weather a cancer diagnosis and treatment journey.

In this illustrated talk during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Loughridge will share her book, "Rad Art: A Journey Through Radiation Treatment," (American Cancer Society, 2012) and explore other creative routes survivors use to find solace and strength.

Signed copies of her book will be available for purchase, benefiting the American Cancer Society. Loughridge will also lead a walkthrough of her art hanging in the Inn's Carriage House. Paintings purchased from Oct. 16 to 31 will be discounted 10 percent, with a portion of proceeds donated to ACS.

Whether a caregiver, professional, loved one, or survivor, anyone touched by cancer is invited. Refreshments will be served. There is no charge, but an RSVP is appreciated. For more information call 729-4914 or email
