Catherine Whall Smith . . . Happy New Year 2019 – it’s going to be a busy year!

Since 2019 will be busy with several shows in the works. I decided to start thinking about which pieces I will be hanging for the month of February at the the Art Corridor on the Saint Raphael Campus of the Yale New Haven Hospital.  The Art Corridor shows a wide variety of art and artists. The 2019 exhibits continue to exemplify how creative expression can make a powerful contribution to the healing process.   Twenty-four local artists will have their work showcased in the Auxiliary’s Art Corridor during 2019. They were selected by the Art Corridor Committee, chaired by Jane Snaider, with involvement from Andrew Wolf, New Haven Director of Arts, Culture and Tourism.  The Yale New Haven Hospital is located at 20 York Street, New Haven, CT .

I think the pieces in my  “Transfusion” series will work nicely for my part of the month long February 2019 show.  This series has large, medium, and small pieces.  It is a tribute to my father who died suddenly almost 40 years ago of a massive heart attack. Though his physical body is gone his spirit has definitely passed on like a blood transfusion into his children, grand-children, and great grand-children. This photo below shows “Transfusion #4 (40H x 48W) hung on a wall in our home with two of the mounted 12 x 12 ‘s in the “PARTS” series.  These “Parts” are duplicate sections of the larger piece.  I’m thinking a lot of these 12 x 12’s hung together on a wall might be interesting.  So far I have completed 8 parts – so I will need to complete a few more of these hand-stitched pieces for the most visual impact.  Time to get busy as 2019 will be here before you know it!  No Time to Waste!

   Have a Healthy, Happy New Year 2019!!!
