Sydney’s Jewish House has joined Palliative Care NSW in supporting the Reflections of Care art exhibition.

The event coincides with National Palliative Care Week.

Reflections of Care is the work of “Five Artists”, representing different ages and ethnicity, but sharing a common passion for art using their talents for good to support charities.

The exhibition was launched in memory of Gloria Moleman whose daughter, Miriam Perl is one of the five artists in the collaborative. She  says the exhibition is a personal way to highlight the support palliative care offered her family.

She said: “My mum’s art is my legacy. Reflections of Care is about my mum who was my greatest teacher.

It’s about her journey with cancer, the wonderful palliative care nurse who cared for us all, for Palliative Care NSW and Jewish House and all those unsung heroes who face up to the uncomfortable reality of life every single day.”

PCNSW President Therese Smeal is delighted to see this exhibition come to life.

“Palliative Care New South Wales is honoured to be involved in this exhibition. Our aim is to make sure that everyone has high quality care, right to the end of life.

“We often have people tell us that talking about death is difficult. Art is one way to express important and deep feelings that we may struggle to talk about,” Ms Smeal said.

“We only die once. We need to get it right. This election period is a great opportunity for the whole community to talk to their local members to ensure that access to high quality palliative care is recognised as the important issue that it is,” Ms Callaghan said.

Five Artists – Reflections of Care runs to 1 June 2016 at Comber Street Studios in Paddington.
