Every now and again, an artist deeply touches you... the experience transcending mere interest, pleasure, or delight. Such has been our experience of @phyliciaghee , whose performances mine a deeply spiritual place of profound connection to something so much larger than our every day... to a place of wholeness, presence, and healing. Our #ndcartistoftheweek is Phylicia Ghee, who has been a fixture as an artist for the New Day Campaign since we began in 2015. Our Resident Healing Artist in 2015, Phylicia has presented several extraordinarily powerful performances over the past several years, and will be a part of our activities again in 2018 in a yet-to-be-determined healing arts workshop as part of our programming for “Heroin & Healing,” an exhibition we are presenting with @kentcountyarts . You can see more of Phylicia at her website at #artheals #healingandart #itsanewday #ndcitsanewday
