Art "feeds the soul!”
Art “feeds the soul!”
The June Health Hunters Newsletter told you of our plans to upgrade the look and feel of the Dome interiors with more comfortable and welcoming furnishings in waiting areas. We are excited that we will also be showcasing Kansas artists whose work will hang in the Supplement Store, Clinic, and the Panorama Room. The project may expand to additional areas in the future. The artwork will add color to the interiors and is for sale. The Clinic will receive a portion of each sale, with the funds to be used for the Clinic’s professional and public education efforts.
Different artists will be showcased every two months. Two of our current artists are:
- Wil Fathi who’s work hangs in our Panorama Room (where we host our Lunch & Lectures). The series of 5 paintings are done on plexiglass, with 30 or more layers on which to create an illusion of texture. Wil has a master’s of fine arts degree from Wichita State University and teaches at both City Arts and Artist Central in Wichita.
- Lindy Wiese’s acrylic landscapes are on display in Dome 1 and are characterized by a pallet knife to bring out depth and color combinations. Lindy started painting ten years ago and has both a master’s degree in counseling and a specialist’s degree in education from Wichita State University. She has her studio at Artist Central in Wichita.
We are grateful to Jo Zakas of Artist Central for her help in making this opportunity available for the enjoyment of co-learners and visitors to the Riordan Clinic. Stop in, take a look and let us know if you would like to make a purchase for your home or office.
