CENTER FOR ART & REHABILITATIVE ENERGIES
3696-3682 Pearl Street, Shellman, GA 39886
Mail to: P.O. Box 155, Shellman, GA 39886
Walter E. (Gene) Lewis, a native of Shellman, GA and Ray Pierotti, born in Bountiful, UT have recently moved their residence and professional practices to Shellman in order to develop C.A.R.E., a center that will focus on the Arts and Healing Therapies intended to benefit all who participate in its programs. The Center’s desire is to serve everyone regardless of nationality, age, gender, sexual preferences and racial origins.
The artistic aspect of the Center will introduce the intellectual, emotional and spiritual values that the Arts have brought to the World since time immemorial. Since the arts are frequently neglected in the public and private educational systems in this country and in particular in Randolph county, the Center hopes to fill this void by offering exhibitions, lectures and hands-on workshops as the interest becomes manifest. Ray’s speciality is in the multi-layering of several mediums on untreated canvas and acid-free papers. Ray’s work can be seen on his web site: www.raypierotti.com
The Arts and Healing Care share in a common cause. They bring to individuals who participate in their activities a sense of well being, a renewed positive outlook on daily circumstances and a sense of connecting with what is human in each of us.
The Rehabilitative Energy aspect of the Center will focus on alternative therapies taught and utilized throughout the world for helping those individuals who suffer from conditions that are not being treated by the traditional medical approaches to the health and well being of the concerned individual. Like the Arts these rehabilitative therapies look to educating the participants in the importance of personal development and trust in one’s own inner ability to heal, gain self confidence and share their gifts with others in need. This will be done in private and small group sessions conducted by Gene along with public lectures on the numerous alternative therapies available which are mostly ignored or unknown to the larger community. These therapies can be viewed on Gene’s web site: www.genelewis.us
The Gallery is Open Saturdays & Sundays from 1:00 -6:00 PM
The Center currently consists of three buildings and 13 acres of land located on Shellman’s main street. The barn being developed into a museum/studio space will host exhibitions and other events. The small guest cottage located at 3682 Pearl Street has a reception area, a therapy room and space for gathering groups for lectures and presentations. Future developments will include a private meditation garden (open to the public) and eventually several small self sufficient cottages to be available to travelers who make the Center a destination. For additional information please contact the Center.
