Exhibition Features Paintings of Parkinson’s Patients

Shaking hands are not a hindrance to painting. Memory loss is not a hurdle to delivering motivational speeches. Sending out these messages loud and clear were the paintings of 20-odd Parkinson’s patients at ‘Brushstrokes of Resilience’, a one-day art exhibition at Rela Hospital, which also featured inspiring speeches of the patients, and a musical expo.


Rela Hospital in association with Global art India organised the exhibition, and an arts workshop for the Parkinson’s patients the previous day, to highlight the therapeutic value of art in the integrated treatment of Parkinson’s disease, and to mark World Parkinson’s Day, which falls on April 11, 2023, annually. The hospital is also conducting a free medical camp for Parkinson’s patients from April 11-17, 2023.


Dr. J Radhakrishnan, IAS - Principal Secretary to Co-operation, Food and Consumer Protection Department, Government of Tamil Nadu, inaugurated the exhibition. Prof. Mohamed Rela, Chairman and Managing Director, Rela Hospital, presided over the function.
