ARTISTS AT HOME – Online Conversation with Hirsch Founder Louise Grape
May 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join us for a very special conversation when Molly Haile interviews Hirsch Founder Louise Grape. Louise grew up hanging around in art studios. Her mother, Myrna Hirsch, was a painter at the Ridgewood Art Institute in Ridgewood, NJ, during the late 1960s. From a young age, Louise witnessed her mother do battle with cancer while being an active part of a community of artists. When Louise was 9, her 34-year old mother died from breast cancer. At 34, Louise was diagnosed with breast cancer. These experiences would become the central threads in the development of Hirsch Wellness Network, which offers creativity and wellness programs in an artistic community as a way to bring support and voice to individuals touched by a cancer diagnosis in the Greater Greensboro area.
Louise Grape holds a B.A. in English Literature and in Communications from UNC–Greensboro, where she received Phi Beta Kappa and Cum Laude honors. She has worked in advertising and has been an active part of the Triad arts community as a potter and fiber artist. For the past 20 years, she has worked as a furniture designer and product developer for numerous furniture manufacturers in North Carolina. She currently lives in Pleasant Garden with her husband, Musician Scott Manring.
Join us for this very special session.
