Connect with the Gardiner Museum Expressive Arts Group

The Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic and the Gardiner Museum have partnered together in the last decade to offer psychotherapeutic groups for women survivors of violence. Suzanne Thompson, an art therapist, and Susan Low-Beer, a ceramic artist facilitate the groups. The women work with clay to produce a ceramic piece of art in reference to a common theme that is introduced in advance of their participation. This unique trauma informed art therapy group runs for 11 weeks. At the end of the 11 weeks, there is an opening night exhibition where group participants display their sculptures. The women are directly involved in the design and installation of the art exhibit, each time offering the public a unique and compelling window to their reflections on violence against women and their hopes for healing.
