The Contemporaries Lunchtime Lecture Series: The Art of Healing


Shana Moulton, Whispering Pines 4, (2007), video still

The Contemporaries Lunchtime Lecture Series is a grab bag of artist talks, panel discussions, and art historical lectures that focus on contemporary themes during the lunch hour of the first Monday of each month.

This month’s Lunchtime Lecture is a Panel Discussion: The Art of Healing.

Inspired by the current exhibition Shana Moulton: Journeys Out of the Body, which features the artist’s alter-ego Cynthia and her journey towards self-improvement, this panel focuses on health and wellness therapies. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Martin Keane of Classical Medicine, and Lisa Schweitzer, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and Registered Play Therapist.

 Since 1990, Martin Keane has been earning his reputation as one of the leading practitioners of alternative medicine in the Tampa Bay region. Board certified in classical homeopathy, the designation Certified in Classical Homeopathy (CCH) awarded by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, Martin Keane has published cases in Simillium and Homeopathy Today and has lectured at national conferences. In 2015 Keane earned his doctorate in Medical Qigong from the International College of Medical Qigong (California), and has served on the faculty of the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida since 1995.

Lisa Schweitzer works with adults, children, and families to help them cope with difficult situations and emotions and find their own solutions. In counseling, she uses talk, play, art, and sand to help clients express themselves in a way that is most comfortable and suited for them. Her practice, Playful Therapy, is located in St. Petersburg.
