Congratulations to Elysse Abraham ’20 for her donated water color painting entitled “The Path to Beauty,” which received The Judges’ Award and placed third in the 2019 9th Annual Hope & Healing Juried Art Show. This year’s reception, awards ceremony and silent auction took place at The Banana Factory, on April 3rd where the 125 donated works of art surrounded the attendees and artists for a night of acknowledgment, and celebration. Other Moravian Academy artists who donated their work to this amazing cause included Brooke Foran ’21, Marcella Harvi ’19, Elizabeth John ’21, Peter (PJ) Scarperi ’20, Joseph Sinkovits’19 and Sara Xiao ’21.
Sponsored by Healing Through the Arts, the Hope & Healing Juried Art Show provides high school and college students the opportunity to create inspirational art for those who are healing. After the gallery show, healthcare professionals can select works of art they would like to display in their hospital or healing facility at no charge to them. The art provides a “window” of hope where an outside view of nature is not possible.
