FASHION SHOW HELPS SHOW HOW ARTS HELP HEAL
Coats For A Cure
By Brad Kadrich - Staff Writer

Kay Warnke shared her story of breast cancer survival, and told an audience of some 85 people at the Plymouth Community Arts Council Wednesday how important the art of creating, sewing and designing has helped her own healing process.

Now the PCAC will offer programs to help others find the same therapy. PCAC executive director Paula Gangopadhyay detailed some of the programs at the PCAC's special healing arts program for breast cancer survivors and supporters, part of the center's observance of Breast Cancer Month. "Arts have the subtle power of soothing and healing one's minds," Gangopadhyay said. "We want to offer the power of Art Self-Expression to Breast Cancer survivors as part of our healing arts program."

As part of Wednesday's program, models displayed coats designed by Warnke as part of a fashion show, "Coats and Totes for a Cure," which showcased Warnke's elegant and colorful jackets with matching tote bags. "The people had a lot of fun," Gangopadhyay said. "They told me they want more programs like these."
