A bevy of local artists are having their work shown at St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center until mid-August as part of the hospital’s rotating art exhibit program.

    The new spring-summer art exhibit opened March 28 upstairs above the lobby at the hospital south of Ketchum. The media shown are painting, photography and printmaking.

    Artists featured in the spring-summer group exhibition are:

  • Kirk Anderson
  • Ginny Blakeslee Breen
  • Diana Citret
  • Diane Dick
  • Keith Dick
  • Karen Jacobson
  • Anne Jeffery
  • Annie May
  • Poo Wright-Pulliam
  • Marie Stewart
  • David Stoecklein

    The new exhibit complements the St. Luke’s Wood River fine art collection, which comprises more than 250 pieces of art from local and national artists, and is funded by community donations.

    Research has shown that art enriches the hospital environment for patients, visitors, staff and volunteers. The permanent collection is an array of contemporary art, including paintings, photographs and sculptures donated to the medical center by local art collectors, which can be seen in hallways, waiting areas and patient rooms.

    The hospital’s art program began in 2000 when the new hospital was built.

    For more information, contact Katie Pratt, art program manager, at 510-292-6300 or visit www.slwrf.org.
