“A Year of Reflection” Art Exhibit at Reid Health
Currently on display in the MacDowell Gallery at Reid Hospital is an exhibit of paintings by Richmond artist Sally Hughes. The title of the exhibit is “A Year of Reflection” and it includes many works in oil, gouache and acrylic that were completed during a year of staying close to home during the covid pandemic. Hughes is a self-described “outdoor girl” who loves to paint familiar flowers and landscapes. She says that during this past year she began to pay more attention to the interesting shapes and shadows created by everyday objects such as a gas can or a collection of tools next to the garden shed, and discovered many opportunities to find beauty in the ordinary. She also enjoys camping trips with her husband, and they were able to venture out a few times last summer where she created a series of beach paintings and landscapes that include figures. This art exhibit is definitely worth seeing and many of the pieces are available for purchase.
The MacDowell Gallery is located on the second floor of the hospital and the current exhibit will remain on display through August 5.
