Two Southern Maryland Known Artists Featured
Leonardtown, Maryland – MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital is currently hosting an art show by two Southern Maryland known artists, Gerry Wood and Pamela Callen. Their artwork is the latest in an ongoing Art of Healing Gallery exhibit located in the hospital’s Atrium dining area for associates, visitors and community members to enjoy.
Lifelong art enthusiast, Gerry Wood primarily paints in watercolors and also enjoys acrylics and collage. Gerry’s studio doubles as a classroom where she enjoys teaching her art students all that she has learned through her own studies. “To me, learning and growing as an artist are as much a priority as the painting process itself,” said Gerry.
Pamela Callen’s world travels and fondness of Southern Maryland often inspire her to create impressionistic style artwork with vivid color and movement, abstracts or semi-abstracts. “I’ve always been drawn to the restful, restorative qualities of the water,” said Pamela, “and I enjoy the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.”
The Art of Healing Gallery began during the hospital’s 2016 annual philanthropy campaign. The hospital’s Auxiliary donated the hanging and lighting system for the rotating Art of Healing Gallery – a modern feature designed to compliment Atrium dining area renovations expected to begin later this year. A rendering of the proposed renovations is displayed inside the Atrium and includes expansion of the eating area with partition, along with updated furniture, lighting, flooring and wall treatments.
