Hanging Around for A Year

Northern Westchester Hospital, one of our area's hospitals, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this coming  year.  To help decorate the halls, artists of the Katonah Museum Artists Association were invited to submit work of a celebratory nature.  Two of my photos were selected for display back in September and I dropped them off at the hospital this week.

In between running errands, I thought I'd stop by to see if anything had yet been hung.  As it turns out, they've all been hung; the labels just aren't quite ready.  Still, it's exciting to see my work hanging in the hallways that are traversed every day, hopefully giving people a bit of beauty at a time when things might not be so great.  Here are my two photos; both are 18" x 24" on wrapped canvas.

Georgia Poppy (L) and Peach Rose (R) 

Hanging next to Georgia Poppy is a piece by Barbara Korman called One Hundred Candles.  I think it's great.



Of course, all our work will look better when the labels are finished, but I'm pleased even so.  These are hanging just off the main hospital entrance where lots of people will see them.  Yep, pretty cool!
