The Howard Young Art Gallery will hold a Christmas Reception in conjunction with the opening of its latest exhibit, “Different Strokes – Shared Inspiration,” on Friday, December 16 from 4:30 - 6 p.m.
Different Strokes - Shared Inspiration features the works of Andy Fenner of Swallow Haven Studio, Irma; Lisa Krueger of Oak View Studio, Tomahawk; and Louise Schotz, of Outback Studio, Irma.
The exhibit combines the interests and talents of three friends who are together as members of both the Lakeland Art League and Northwoods Art Tour. While they each use their own touch in their work,
they support each other through shared ideas, making each artist stronger. During the Christmas Reception, all three artists will talk about different strokes and shared inspiration. Light refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded.
Located in the clinic wing of Howard Young Medical Center, 240, Maple Street, Woodruff, the Howard Young Art Gallery is dedicated to supporting and exhibiting the art work of regional fine artists. The Hospitals commitment to the visual arts is due, in part, to honoring the legacy of S. Howard Young and his passion for art as a dealer and collector, as well as the philosophy that art is central to healing, wellness and quality of life.
“We are thrilled to feature these talented artists in our facility,” said Laurie Oungst, regional chief operating officer for Ministry Health Care, part of Ascension. “The Howard Young Gallery is a key element in our healing environment and this latest exhibit showcases the artists many talents and the Christmas Reception will provide a wonderful opportunity to kick off the exhibit during this blessed time of year.”
Artwork featured at the Howard Young Art Gallery may be purchased through the Howard Young Gift Shop and all proceeds benefit the Howard Young Medical Center Volunteers.
Different Strokes - Shared Inspiration will be on display at the Howard Young Art gallery through January 8, 2017. For more information, please contact Howard Young Medical Center Volunteer Coordinator Kathy Viergutz at 715.356.8677.
