On Display in the Health Sciences Library – The Art of Hope Martin

For Hope Martin, pastels “have a messy, immediate result” that she finds appealing. In her pastel paintings, the artist creates close- ups of animals, people, and objects, inviting us to examine the details along with her. See the distinctive stripes of a tabby cat looking back at you. Follow the soft lines of a young girl sneaking a read in the dark. Glory in the glowing ruby red of berries dangling in the sunlight.

These works and more will be on display at the library through the fall semester.

New Art Display – For Our Legacy Teachers

Our new display features artwork, essays and poetry created by third-year medical students. As a part of the Legacy Teachers Program, students create these works to celebrate and thank a patient who has made a difference in their lives.  The Legacy Teachers program helps remind students they must never stop learning from patients, for they will always have much to teach about courage, dignity, the importance of listening and the values of patient-centered care.

Stop by to check out these moving tributes. This display is available through the close of Spring Semester.

New Artist on Display – Kelsey Westhoff

Kelsey's art captures images of fleeting memories: planes fying overhead, flag banner fluttering in the breeze. Additional images in some of the paintings are a depiction of feelings evoked by those memories. The whites and blues, punctuated by pops of bright colors and darker tones, give a look of freshness and crispness to the oil paintings. 

Kelsey is a staff nurse at the Women's and Children's Hospital. Her art will be on display in the library through December.
