We're very sad to report the following news about Peter Ganick, a long time artist, volunteer and supporter of our organization. Rest in Peace Peter.
Peter Ganick, 73, of West Hartford, passed away on April 16 at Saint Francis Hospital following an extended illness. Before retirement, he taught classical piano in the Greater Hartford area and was founder and editor of a small non-profit publishing company, Poets and Poets Press. A prolific avant-guard writer and artist, much of his writing is part of a collection at the University of Connecticut and his more recent artwork is at Ohio State University. Much of his artwork and some recent poems can be seen on Instagram at ganicoto1. He was a devoted member and volunteer at the West Hartford Art League. His wife of 38 years, Carol Ganick, has established a memorial fund in his name. Donations to the fund may be sent to the West Hartford Art League, 37 Buena Vista, West Hartford, CT 06107
