You don’t need to be sick to visit the St Cloud Hospital!
Now this is how I like to visit a hospital—to view artwork! Every month a different artist display and sells their art, with a portion of the sales going back to the hospital auxiliary. While it’s nice for the employees and hospital visitors to be able to view the artwork, you can come view this anytime (and you don’t need to be a patient).
On Monday morning I was busy in this hallway hanging my photographs. Now I don’t use a tape measure to make sure every one is the at the same height. I “eyeball it” as they say. Looking at this photo I don’t think I did too bad a job! I always meet a few folks while I’m there, too. One nice 87 (?) year old gentleman let me know where an old cemetery is near where he grew up. I’ll have to go check that out! (I have an on-again/off-again personal project photographing old cemeteries, so this wasn’t as strange as it seems.)
This year I had a few decisions to make as to what to display. I like having a variety of sizes and prices available for people to purchase, so that goes into my decision process, too. I’m also in an outdoor art fair this month, so I couldn’t be taking my photographs from the hospital for the art fair.
I wanted to have at least one big gallery wrapped canvas, and I chose It Was All a Dream as the one! (You can see it in the image below.) Around the 20th I’ll also hang what remains of my artwork from Art Fair in the Gardens (at Munsinger Gardens in St Cloud, Minnesota). So there should be a few more large gallery wrapped canvases.
Ok everyone. That wraps it up for this week. Have a safe and fun 4th of July! For my non-US readers, you have a great week and weekend!
