The Phipps Center for the Arts collaborates with Hudson Hospital & Clinic and Westfields Hospital & Clinic, New Richmond, Wis., to provide Healing Arts Programs at each venue. Work by more than 20 local and regional artists is on view at any given time, and exhibits rotate quarterly. Receptions, which are open to the public, are held quarterly for each program, to celebrate the creativity of the participating artists.
Upcoming Exhibits at Hudson Hospital & Clinic
On view at Hudson Hospital & Clinic through April 14: Sylvia Benson, Margaret Grill, Stanley Leonard, Naomi Tiry Salgado, Glenn Terry, Jill Van Sickle, Joan Solomon, and Alyssa Wendorff
“My only hope conceptually is that my prints will leave people with a sense of reverence for the world around them, choosing to acknowledge that nature is something that exists everywhere, and they are a part of it.”
– Stanley Leonard (Woodbury, Minn.)
On view through May 5: Nancy Condon, Greg Lecker, Michaela Mahady, Steve Miller, and Gene Piersa
“Most of my pieces are functional and each one unique. My work includes bowls, vases, vessels, plates, boxes, urns and some unique pepper mills with graceful curves. Showcasing the natural beauty of the different grains and tones is the beauty of working with each type of wood.”
– Steve Miller (River Falls, Wis.)
On view March 6 – June 2: Cheri Thies
On view April 17 – July 14: Becca Cerra, Nicole Hoekstra, and Minnesota Society of Outdoor Painting
On view April 17 – August 4: Danelle Griner
Upcoming Exhibits at Westfields Hospital and Clinic
On view at Westfields Hospital & Clinic through March 12: Marilyn Rau
On view through April 9: Christy Dickinson, Danelle Griner, Susan Klem, Marie Panlener, and Thursday Morning Painters
“My work examines the process of waiting. This process is ambiguous and can produce comfort or a search for escape. I use textured surfaces combined with the symbol of the chair to represent these emotional terrains and landscapes of waiting.”
– Danelle Griner (St. Paul, Minn.)
“Inspiration for my multimedia art comes from calligraphy, collage and life. I like random geometric shapes mixed with the raw messiness of human touch. The viewer can remember the elation of love and the fun of dancing. Fireworks blast, the garden grows, music plays.”
– Marie Panlener (St. Paul, Minn.)
On view March 15 – June 11: Mark Ostapchuk
On view April 12 – July 9: Barbara Casey, Mark Granlund, Steph Kunze, and Glenn Terry.
“For me, the primary motivating factor in creating art is a desire to express the beauty, peace, harmony, and love that are found when life is connected or striving to connect with its highest nature, where the integration of spirit and matter is found. More than just being a focus of personal interest, I believe it to be vitally needed in today’s world.”
– Glenn Terry (East Bethel, Minn.)
