Art show at BMH benefits Strolling of the Heifers!
The halls of Brattleboro Memorial Hospital will be adorned with the colorful landscape paintings of local artist, Greg Moschetti. In his paintings, Moschetti creates places which have a sense of familiarity about them and draw the viewer into a feeling of peaceful solitude. These are most often open landscapes with nearby water and distant views. Many are set at day’s beginning or end when the light is waxing or waning.
The show is presented in collaboration with Strolling of the Heifers and will remain on view through the end of December. All of the works are for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Strolling of the Heifers’ Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship program.
“Studies have shown that visual art helps reduce stress for patients and increases the overall satisfaction of care. This exhibit truly is a win-win for both our patients and local artists.” said Gina Pattison, Director of Development and Marketing at BMH, noting the benefits of hosting the exhibit.
