Trinity Alliance for the Healing Arts will hold an open house at its new TAHA Community Wellness Center at 140 S. Miner St. in Weaverville.
The Trinity Alliance for the Healing Arts is all about supporting optimal health and wellness for members of our community by providing holistic, complementary health and healing services, and also offering educational classes and workshops.
TAHA House will host its first art show in the new Happy Salmon Gallery, also located in the building. The event will take place Saturday, Nov. 7, before and during the Weaverville Art Cruise.
The grand opening will begin with a complementary Healing Clinic of healing modalities from 3 to 5 p.m. Practitioners and teachers will introduce the public to some of the opportunities and services that will be offered in the future. There will be biofeedback, hypnotherapy, intuitive reading, chair massage, and more. Workshops and classes will also be part of the center’s goals.
Following the clinic the TAHA Center will be having a reception for the "Day of the Dead" invitational show and "Flowers of Trinity County," a photography show by Norman Heryford, both in the new Happy Salmon Gallery. This will be part of the Art Cruise. In support of the community's wellness TAHA will be offering healthy snacks and beverages.
Photographer Norman Heryford will be the featured artist during the Cruise. Heryford’s family moved to Weaverville in 1950 when he was 10 years old. Since then he has lived a full life of richly textured adventures. One of his first jobs was with The Trinity Journal doing errands and cleaning the type machines. His high school summers were often spent in the Trinity Alps.
Later Heryford worked for the Forest Service as a timber cruiser to establish the value of timber sales. He would discover beautiful wildflowers and return on his own time to photograph them. This was the beginning of his love of photography.
He received a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences at Chico State University and then enlisted into the Army. He also studied entomology at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kan., and at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan., doing research on the brown recluse spider. Heryford served 10 years in the Army and one year in Vietnam as an entomologist and sanitarian.
He has chosen a flower theme for this particular show. He enjoys a full range of themes and also does landscapes and people.
