McKinley Art Solutions and the UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women's Health are pleased to present this season's SERENITY Art Exhibit, featuring artists Wendy Robushi, Katia Almeida, Julie Garner, Susan Spies, and Maeve Croghan.
Each of the artists selected for this exhibit were chosen by curator Matt McKinley based on the meditative qualities inherent in their creation process which manifests as pattern, repetition or flow. With the understanding that wellness is a holistic ideal, these artists create work that will enrich the environment of the Women's Health Center in order to engage and uplift visitors and staff alike. The exhibit covers five floors of the Women's Health Center: 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7, with each artist displaying a complete body of work on their respective floor. The public is invited to a reception for the artists on Wednesday, August 21st, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. The exhibit is open for viewing through October 15, 2013 and is open to the public Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., free of charge.
