A Glimpse of Time – Georgia Schaich

Join us on Sunday, May 14 from 2pm – 4pm for a reception featuring the Collage Cards of Georgia Schaich and a Collage Art Card workshop.

Originated by Seena Frost, SoulCollage® is a process for accessing your intuition and creating an incredible deck of cards with deep personal meaning that will help you with life’s questions and transitions. Come to The Gallery at Bell Trace on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14 from 2pm – 4pm to enjoy the collage art cards of Georgia Schaich and make your own collage art cards in our workshop. What a special way to spend the afternoon with that important “mom” in your life. This event is free and open to the public.

Georgia Schaich has dedicated her life to serving others and championing    causes that make Bloomington a more senior-friendly community.  Her career in working with seniors began at Hospitality House (Garden Villa) where she was employed as the Activities Director from 1984-1989. From 1989-2005 she was the director of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program for the Area 10 Agency on Aging. In 1993, Georgia helped create the first TRIAD council in Indiana to help raise seniors’ awareness of crime and ways of protecting themselves. In 2010 she joined the Commission on Aging and served on committees to help organize the annual Creative Aging Festival and design Emergency Disaster Support for Elders. Georgia left her seat on the Bloomington Commission on Aging to dedicate her time and energy to the development of Sally’s Place, a gathering place for seniors in downtown Bloomington,  sponsored by the Salvation Army. In the spring of 2014, Georgia received a Lifetime Contribution Award from Mayor Mark Kruzan, for a lifetime of leadership, service, and contribution on behalf of women.

In 2010, Georgia’s daughter Amy, a certified Soul Collage facilitator, introduced Georgia to the wonderful world of collage. This specific collage making method, called Soul Collage, was developed by Seena B. Frost. Frost describes Soul Collage as “a process for accessing your intuition and creating an incredible deck of cards with deep personal meaning that will help you with life’s questions and transitions.”

For Georgia, she says that, “Making this collection of cards was an opportunity to catch a glimpse into my soul and to discover what is important to me and to appreciate the many different facets of myself. I am happy to share this work with you. I have found it to be a fascinating process of self-awareness and personal development.” Being reminded of who you are, where you come from, what shapes your beliefs, your attitude, your body, and your thoughts directly informs your future.
