Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce the opening of an exhibition entitled “Urban” highlighting the region’s rich and diverse community of artists and their works. All artists chosen for the exhibition use or are inspired visually by an urban environment and their work is a celebration of people that inhabit cities through portraiture, abstracted through sculpture or inspired by graffiti. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, November 8 beginning at 12:30 p.m. at Orange Regional Medical Center located at 707 East Main Street, Middletown on the ground floor adjacent to the cafeteria.
The exhibition will include pieces of original art including paintings, photography and drawings that represent visual expressions of the beauty of color. The artists represented in the exhibit all reside within Orange County and range from first time exhibitors to those with established reputations in the art community.
“The mission of the Orange Regional Medical Center Art Exhibit Program is to provide a life-affirming, healing and supportive environment for patients, families, caregivers, students, faculty and staff,” says Orange Regional Art Curator, Sarah Thompson. “Art has an ability to provide comfort in a time of need.”
The art will be available for viewing through December 11, 2012. Future art shows continuing to display local talent are being planned.
