Hoyt calls for art with healing theme
NEW CASTLE, Pa.
The Hoyt Center for the Arts and Jameson Health System will present The Art of Healing, a juried exhibition exploring the healing potential of art. The exhibition will celebrate the opening of the new emergency/surgical wing at the Jameson North Campus, and will be installed on its second floor from March 23 to June 29.
Original works of art by regional artists with a theme of healing are being sought by the Hoyt for the exhibition. Healing can mean recovery, treatment, or providing care and can appear in the form of a portrait, an abstract painting, a vessel or a found object. It also could be in the process of creating the work.
Artists must include a brief description of their work and how it relates to the theme. Entries must be hand delivered to the Hoyt between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. March 9. More than $1,500 in cash will be given as awards. For information and a prospectus, call the Hoyt at 724-652-2882, or email email@example.com.
