Healing with Glass

Health care workers have gone above and beyond during the pandemic: risking their own health to save our lives. Ohio glass artist Terri Albanese saw the opportunity to give back: offering hope, healing, and acknowledgement to these courageous professionals who have given so much. As a graduate of the CHF Art-Business Accelerator, she had the tools to make a multi-year project a reality—she’d sewn the seeds for a visionary touring exhibition while in the program, and CHF continued to support her vision by becoming a fiscal sponsor.

Spring 2022. A Garden of Gratitude—Thanking Our Wounded Healers and Healing Our Communities is now in full bloom, with 17 original glass paintings of vibrant flowers that symbolize the heart and spirit of hospital workers. It opened at Mount Carmel East Hospital in Columbus, Ohio; it will then travel to University Hospitals-Cleveland, Cleveland, Ohio; University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital, Lexington, Kentucky; and ends April 2023 at McLaren St. Luke’s Hospital, Maumee, Ohio. The exhibition is free to the public.

Please join us in congratulating Terri on this groundbreaking exhibit! Click here to read the full press release. If you’d like to be part of it by sharing a story, adding a petal to the Bouquet of Gratitude, or sponsoring A Garden of Gratitude, you can find out more here.
