The Community Art Program at North Adams Regional Hospital
The Community Art Program at North Adams Regional Hospital presents a new exhibition of more than 200 works by twenty-one area artists. Hallways and waiting areas on four floors of the hospital will be filled with artwork.
The exhibit includes works in a variety of media, with styles from abstraction to realism. Artists will be showing watercolors, oil paintings, photographs, digital art, prints, pastels, and mixed media art. “Five artists who have not participated in the Community Art Program before are a welcome addition to the upcoming exhibit,” said Carson. “They include photographs by Craig Clemow, paintings by Andrew Davis, drawings by Claire Fox, fine art reproductions of original watercolors by Marguerite Bride, and photograms by Barbara Lampron. Each of the twenty-one participating artists is showing several works of art, enough for viewers to appreciate their unique sense of creativity.”
“All of the artwork is for sale,” added Carson. “People can support local artists and the hospital’s Community Art Program by purchasing high quality artwork.”
The artists participating in this show are primarily from the immediate area including Adams, North Adams, Pittsfield, Hinsdale, Williamstown and Clarksburg. A few of the artists are from farther afield – New Jersey, Connecticut and New York. All of the artists loan their work for the six-month long exhibition.
Since 1999 it has been the desire of North Adams Regional Hospital to complement the healing process with artwork through its Community Art Program. This program enhances the hospital environment for patients, staff and visitors. Artists have the satisfaction of sharing their art to benefit healing as well as an opportunity to have their work viewed by a wide audience in a busy, public location.
The public is welcome to visit the hospital to see the art exhibit. Visitors can pick up a copy of the “Self Guided Tour of the Art Exhibit” at the Information Desk in the main lobby and walk through the exhibit on four floors of the hospital.
This exhibition continues through April 4, 2014.
